Home Loss To Giants Named No. 2 Game Of 2011 Season

This one may sting a little. The Cowboys' Week 14 loss to the Giants in Arlington has been named the second-best game of the entire 2011 season, according to's ongoing countdown.

Remember, that's the one where New York overcame a 12-point deficit with a little over three minutes to play.

You know, this was the game when Tony Romo missed Miles Austin by, oh, six inches, on what would've been a game-sealing deep ball. In this game, you'll recall, Romo had the highest quarterback rating (141.3) in a losing effort of any signal-caller last year.

And don't forget, Jason Pierre-Paul blocked Dan Bailey's potential game-tying kick as time expired.

Come to think of it, this was the game the Giants took back control of the NFC East, taking over a tiebreaker lead from the Cowboys, who had been two games up entering Week 13. A few weeks later, they would knock off the Cowboys at the Meadowlands to claim the division title en route to their Super Bowl XLVI march.

Yeah, how could you forget?
