Cowboys get 6 TOs to beat Manning, Giants 36-31

Brandon Carr returned an interception 49 yards for a clinching touchdown, and the Dallas Cowboys beat Eli Manning for the first time at their fancy $1.2 billion stadium with six takeaways in a 36-31 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night. 

Tony Romo threw two scoring passes to Jason Witten.

Manning threw three touchdown passes to Victor Cruz and had New York in position for a comeback despite the flurry of mistakes.

But with the Giants trailing 30-24, a pass from Manning went off the hand of running back De'Rel Scott into Carr's arms.

The cornerback beat Manning down the sideline for Dallas' second defensive touchdown with 1:50 remaining.

The Giants and Manning won in their first four trips to Arlington, including the stadium's first regular-season game in 2009.
