Giants stop Cowboys’ 11-game winning streak

(AP) — The Dallas Cowboys’ 11-game winning streak has been stopped by the team that handed them their previous loss.

The New York Giants silenced rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott in a 10-7 win over the Cowboys at the Meadowlands. The Giants bolstered their NFC playoff chances by completing a sweep of the two-game season series.

Prescott tossed a 31-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams, putting the Cowboys ahead 7-0 in the first quarter. However, Prescott was just 17 of 37 for 165 yards and two interceptions in his worst performance of the year.

Elliott ran for 107 yards on 24 carries but didn’t have a gain of more than 15 yards.

The 9-4 Giants did their scoring in the third quarter as Odell Beckham Jr. hauled in a 61-yard TD reception to put New York ahead following a 39-yard field goal by Robbie Gould (gohld). Eli Manning completed 17 of his 28 passes for 193 yards, one interception and two lost fumbles.

Each team had three turnovers on the slick surface created by a steady rain in New Jersey. Dez Bryant fumbled on his only reception, allowing the Giants to take time off the clock late in the game.
