New York kicker Lawrence Tynes didn’t quite follow his dream’s script. The kick he made last night in overtime had the same impact, though, sending the Giants to the Super Bowl on a rainy San Francisco evening.
The New York Giants pulled out a 29- 24 road win against the division-rival Dallas Cowboys after blowing a 23-0 second-quarter lead, while the New York Jets were routed by the Miami Dolphins 30-9 at home after falling behind 20-0 in the first half.
The New York Giants beat the Buffalo Bills on a last-minute field goal for their first victory over a team with a winning record, while the Green Bay Packers stayed undefeated and the Detroit Lions suffered their first loss of the National Football League season.
Eli Manning passed for 510 yards as the Super Bowl-champion New York Giants scored 25 fourth-quarter points to rally past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 41-34 and avoid an 0-2 start to the National Football League season.
