A win is a win, whether it’s by five touchdowns or a single point. But Sunday’s 20-19 victory over the Cowboys was the first time in a while the Giants have been able to claim the latter.

This was the Giants’ first one-point win over anyone since they beat Denver, 24-23, on Oct. 23, 2005. It was their first one-point road win since they beat the Saints in New Orleans, 13-12, on Nov. 27, 1988. It was their first one-point win in a season-opening game since they beat the Eagles, 28-27, on Sept. 2, 1984. And it was their first one-point win over the Cowboys in their history.

All of which is courtesy of Randy Bullock missing an extra point in the second quarter.
