They told Brennamen and Billick they were going to take away Dez and Witten and make the Cowboys beat them another way. That game had all the makings of an ugly AFC North slugfest that would be decided on a critical turnover, and that's exactly what it turned out to be.
The Giants were playing like utter garbage during that stretch and just had a major storm that totally side-lined their whole city. Eli was out of his house... You also forgot to mention the other teams they beat, like a Kansas City, Oakland and San Diego, who you pointed out beat a 'good' Steelers team to make some sort of point...
Sorry, don't buy it...
