Last Night's Giants-Cowboys Game, Reduced To Its Al Michaels-Stupefying Lead Changes

Last night's prime time football game gave us some of the most exciting action of the day—a rarity this season.The Giants-Cowboys game was full of lead changes, and Al Michaels was on top of it, constantly providing an updated tally for the viewer.


The teams swapped the lead eight times in all—the most since another Giants-Cowboys meeting in 2009—and it could have been more had it not been for the Cowboys' blocked field goal in the closing seconds. This time, at least, the opposing coach did the honors of icing Jason Garrett's kicker at the end of the game.

A video of all eight lead changes, along with Michaels's disbelieving reports, is above.
