The Giants picked up a crucial Week 17 win over the Dallas Cowboys, 23-19, to keep their playoff hopes alive for at least a few more hours. If the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Washington Football Team on Sunday Night Football, the Giants will be crowned NFC East Champions.
Sterling Shepard was the star on offense, reeling in eight passes for 112 yards and a touchdown while adding two rushes for 24 yards and an additional touchdown. Daniel Jones threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns, while Dante Pettis caught his first touchdown as a member of the Giants when he snagged a 33-yard pass in the end zone late in the second quarter.
On the defensive side of the ball, Leonard Williams had one of the best games of his NFL career, picking up a career-high 3.0 sacks to go with seven tackles (five solo), five quarterback hits, three tackles for loss and one pass defended. Xavier McKinney registered the first turnover of his career when he picked off Andy Dalton late in the fourth quarter to seal the Giants' victory.
