Hixon's return may have done it

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- After a questionable intentional grounding call on Tony Romo, the Giants were going to get the ball back with a seven-point lead. But Domenik Hixon fielded a 59-yard punt from Mat McBriar and then raced for a 79-yard touchdown.

It looked like the Cowboys had Hixon cornered but Orlando Scandrick and Pat Watkins let him get away. The Giants' Derek Hagan blocked Sam Hurd to allow Hixon to scamper the final 10 yards. Cowboys on the move -- but time's now a factor with 4:15 left in the game.
