Ron Dayne rushed 2 times for 5 yards and had 1 fumble.
Matt Bryant kicked three field goals.

Game Notes:
"My favorite preseason games are the away games, mostly because I don't have to pay for them. This one was looking pretty bad for the Giants in the first quarter, and then, a little into the second quarter, they were down 17-0. If you stayed around, you got to see Jesse Palmer become more effective, and he moved the Giants ahead 20-17 by the time he left at the end of the half.
Jesse seems to run into bad luck at times with his receivers dropping the ball on him. Lucky for him tonight, the special teams group had a real good game, and they gave him some extra chances to shine.
"


Game Notes:
"Let's just talk quarterbacks. After that first quarter, you were wondering about the quality of quarterbacks the Giants have had since Phil Simms.
Right, they are very lucky indeed that Kerry Collins screwed up his life just enough for them to be able to get him. So after tonight, who should fill in for Kerry Collins if he can't play. Is it Jesse Palmer, or Jason Garrett, or do you want them to go out and find Mike Cherry?
When it comes down to it, if something happens to Kerry Collins, they might as well make Tiki Barber the quarterback. He does every thing else for this team on offense anyway. We all know how important it is to get the ball to Tiki. Well, why not cut out the middle man and just give it to him right off on the snap. Seriously, in this area, the Giants will likely get by this season, but may have to consider the backup quarterback role in the future.
Added note - Ron Dayne didn't help himself much in this game with his performance, meanwhile Delvin Joyce looked like he came to play."
