Cowboys season ends with loss to Giants
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Rookie Xavier McKinney intercepted Andy Dalton in the end zone with 1:15 remaining, lifting the New York Giants to the brink of an unprecedented, six-win playoff berth with a 23-19 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
New York’s postseason hopes hinged on Philadelphia beating Washington on Sunday night, but the Eagles lost 20-14. The Giants would have been the first team to qualify for the playoffs with six victories in a 16-game regular season and the first to do so after starting 1-7.
