Tale Of The Tape
Terrell Owens and Jason Witten have been inextricably linked in the past week. Here's a look at how they fared against the Giants on Sunday:
In two games against Dallas, Manning was sacked 12 times; he's been sacked only 11 times in the other 12 games combined. ... New York's pass-blocking was hurt by losing RT Kareem McKenzie (back) in the second quarter and LG Rich Seubert (flu) in the second half. ... Ware is within reach of Michael Strahan's single-season record of 22 1/2. ... Greg Ellis had two sacks, Chris Canty got 1 1/2, Bradie James had one and Anthony Spencer had the other half.
