Yes, the Cowboys straight up crippled the Giants defense during that final seconds-long drive.

The heat he got right after is warranted.
Manning finally answered for himself. He revealed that he told running back Rashad Jennings not to score (to run out the time, which is just bizarrely ironic) and that he’s at fault for what happened on that fatal mistake on third down.
“I’ve got to do a better job understanding that if they’re not wide open,” Manning said, according to NFL.com. “That I got to take a sack. I have to be smarter in that scenario.”
