WR Nicks Puts Up Big Numbers vs. Cowboys


Just as Cowboys Stadium has been good to Eli Manning, Hakeem Nicks is settling in just fine there as well.

In 2010, the wide receiver caught nine passes for more than 100 yards and two touchdowns. While he wouldn't find the end zone on Sunday night in Dallas, Nicks put up 154 yards on seven catches against the Cowboys.

"I think it's just a matter of competing, fighting to the last minute," Nicks said about the success of the passing game. "We've got a great group of guys that are very competitive. We know what we are capable of doing."

Thanks to a 64-yard pickup when he beat cornerback Alan Ball and safety Gerald Sensabaugh, Nicks broke the 100-yard mark before the end of the first quarter. Of Manning's 110 in the opening frame, 105 were to Nicks on four passes (five targets).

Nicks caught three more passes in the game while lanes opened for Victor Cruz and Mario Manningham, whose 47-yard touchdown in the third quarter was his first catch of the night.

"It's just all confidence," Nicks said. "Not one man in that huddle was lacking confidence. We knew what we were capable of doing. We've done it time after time this season. It was just a matter of getting it done. That's what we did. We kept on believing in each other. Eli kept that confidence going strong in that huddle and guys made plays for him."
