NFL 1979, Week 10: NY Giants 24, Dallas 21

The Giants shocked even their most staunchest supporters with a ground and pound strategy with third string QB Randy Dean at the helm, starting the game with a TD drive that lasted over 10 minutes.  The Giants built a 24-0 lead going into the fourth quarter, and barely survived a furious Roger Staubach rally for the 24-21 win.

Billy Taylor took the game’s MVP award, scoring two rushing touchdowns on 18 carries for 67 yards.

The Giants move to 3-7, the Cowboys slip back to 5-5.
