Cowboys at Giants
Now that the Patriots have settled the question of who's the best team in the AFC (page 34), it's time to sort things out atop the NFC. Dallas (7--1) beat New York (6--2) in their first matchup, winning a 45--35 shootout as Tony Romo (left) and Eli Manning (right) each threw for more than 300 yards and four TDs. Last week the Cowboys gave Romo a $67.5 million extension—not bad for a guy who went undrafted. Owner Jerry Jones also tossed in some free advice for his QB, who has been linked to Carrie Underwood, Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears: "I tell you this, Tony, sometimes, they can smell fresh cash."
