4. Week 1, 2015: Giants miscue leads to Cowboys win

Watching this game from start to finish, the game's pace felt off. The Cowboys' offense looked sloppy and turned the ball over in critical moments.

The Cowboys trailed twice by 10 with scores of 16-6 in the 3rd quarter and 23-13 in the fourth The Giants appeared to have this game put away as they had the ball leading 23-20 late in the fourth quarter. 

All the Giants had to do was run the ball, whether they scored or not. The Cowboys would have gotten the football back with virtually no time on the clock and no timeouts. Instead, Eli Manning -- rather than sliding or giving himself up on a 3rd and goal pass -- Manning threw the ball out of the endzone, which preserved 1:37 on the clock for Dallas, who were trailing 26-20.

Romo and the Cowboys' offense took full advantage. 

In a blink, it took just six plays and 1:27 off the clock for the Cowboys to win the game as Romo was able to secure a poor snap and find Jason Witten for an 11-yard touchdown to win the game. This would be the final matchup between Manning and Romo.
