Eli Manning – No-brainer. 16/23, 254, 11.0, 4 TD, 0 INT. Mistake-free, even under a heavy pass rush.
Victor Cruz – Also pretty obvious. 2 HUGE plays, 3 catches, 110 yards, 2 TD.
Ahmad Bradshaw – 139 yards from scrimmage, and a TD. Posterized Nate Allen.
Aaron Ross – Forget the picks (he had 2). He played well all day even without them.
Jason Pierre-Paul – 2 more sacks to bring his season total to 4.5. Also had 9 tackles. Great game from the kid. So far, it’s pretty safe to say he’s better than Brandon Graham.
Felix Jones – Finally showed a little burst, to the tune of 115 yards on 14 carries. With everyone carrying on about Tony Romo’s ribs, Jones’ separated shoulder has completely fallen under the radar. Where’s Felix’s pub? He’s the one that had the great game, not Romo.
DeMarcus Ware – Yeah, he’ll probably be here every week. His stat line isn’t the most impressive (3 tackles, 1 sack), but the number of times he was held (and didn’t have it called) was comical. Don’t worry, DeMarcus. I saw you.
Anthony Spencer – Big game for Spencer. Chased Rex Grossman around all night, and sealed the win by stripping him.
Dan Bailey – 6 for 6, including a game winner.
Mat McBriar – 50.7 yards per punt (45.3 net), including a long one of 65. H/t to the Cowboys’ specials teams as a whole actually, for being the first team so far this year to completely shut down the very dangerous Brandon Banks.
Sean Lee – 8 more tackles and another pick. PSU grad can play.
The turf – No, not for the slippery reason. The cowboys put the ball on the ground 6 times, only lost 1. The ball just seemed to keep bouncing the Cowboys’ way. The turf was very kind to the Cowboys.
LeSean McCoy – 24 carries for 128 and another TD. On the season, McCoy’s rushing numbers: 57 carries, 345 yards (6.1 YPC) and 4TDs. He may be the best offensive player in the division.
LaRon Landry – Had trouble finding anyone, really, even though the skins were in the game until the final minute. Landry looked great in his return, particularly early, when he put a nice physical tackle on Kevin Ogletree and relieved him of the football.
