Romo gutting it out

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

IRVING, Texas -- It looked like Tony Romo could've run for the first down, but when he saw that his pump fake froze safety James Butler, he knew he had Patrick Crayton running alone.

Crayton, who'd been a non-factor the last few weeks, has been a huge part of the game plan. Maybe that "secret meeting" wasn't such a bad idea after all. I'm watching the Cowboys' defense pretty closely right now. They're playing a lot of games at the line of scrimmage and there's a lot of pre-snap movement in the secondary. Keith Davis just whiffed on a tackle, allowing Giants tight end Kevin Boss to make a big play.
