EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - While the New York Giants' defense has been the catalyst in their amazing comeback from a dismal 0-6 start, there were concerns after last week's win over the Green Bay Packers.
The biggest was the secondary. Scott Tolzien completed five passes of 25 yards and 10 of 15 yards or more in his first NFL start. It wasn't enough to prevent the Giants (4-6) from posting a 27-13 win, but it wasn't encouraging.
In their previous nine games, the Giants had allowed 11 pass plays of 25 yards or more all season.
If Tolzien could torch the secondary, imagine what Tony Romo and the Cowboys (5-4) will do on Sunday. The veteran quarterback has 12 touchdowns and three interceptions in his past four starts in New Jersey.
