    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Some thoughts on the New York Giants' 33-20 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

    [​IMG][​IMG]What it means: Who turned the lights out on the Giants? In a bizarre game, the power went out at New Meadowlands Stadium and it was dark for a stint.

    Defenseless: The Giants came into this game as the top-ranked defense in the NFL and looked like the worst at times. The Giants not only were torched for 33 points by a previously dormant Dallas offense but they looked lost at times.

    Big D: Dallas played much better under new head coach Jason Garrett and the Dallas sideline was fired up by two monster plays.

    Lights out: New Meadowlands Stadium lost power in the third quarter twice and the second time caused a nearly 10-minute delay. When the lights finally came back on for good, the Giants scored a touchdown to cut the deficit to 26-13.

    The Smith factor: Smith had torched the Cowboys for a total of 25 catches for 345 yards and two touchdowns in his previous three games against Dallas. With Smith out due to a pectoral injury, the Giants struggled to convert third downs.

    Hold the line: The Giants started Kevin Boothe, who was recently activated off the physically unable to perform list, at left guard. Rich Seubert started his second straight game at center and Shawn Andrews started his second game at left tackle. The offensive line gave Manning time for the most part.

    What's next: Pretty much the biggest game of the season for the Giants. They travel down the turnpike to Philadelphia to get their first crack at Michael Vick and the Eagles.
