Giants-Cowboys: The Bottom Five

It all comes down to this. Four games, two of them against the Cowboys, to determine the success or failure of the 2011 season. Very exciting. Lots to talk and write about. Lots to analyze. And in this season of making lists and checking twice, we are about to give you the Bottom Five Things to Look For in Sunday’s clash between the Giants and Cowboys.

2. Third quarter announcement: “Congratulations to the lucky fan in Section 329, Row G, Seat 9! If you look under your seat, you’ll find DeMarcus Ware’s missing manhood!”

1. Just as the clock is approaching midnight in the east, the Giants intercept Tony Romo to seal the win, prompting the following headline: Antrel Rolle Makes Key Play ... At The End Of The Day.
