Giants Vs. Cowboys Score Update: Victor Cruz's 74-Yard Touchdown Helps New York Take 7-0 Lead Over Dallas After One Quarter

A 74-yard touchdown reception by wide receiver Victor Cruz from quarterback Eli Manning has helped the New York Giants take an early lead on the Dallas Cowboys, who trail 7-0 after one quarter of play in a NFC East title game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. The winner earns the division title and the last playoff spot in the NFC.

Cruz's ninth touchdown of the season capped a short but effective six-play, 96-yard drive that also featured the Giants converting a 3rd-and-9 from their own five-yard line. On 3rd-and-1 from the their own 26-yard line, Manning connected with Cruz on a quick-out pattern that turned into a touchdown after the speedy receiver beat Cowboy's safety Terrence Newman to the edge and then outran the rest of the Dallas defense with 5:11 to play in the quarter.

Meanwhile, New York's defense has held the Cowboys to just 10 plays on three possessions.
