The New York Giants were banged up heading into their game on Thanksgiving against the Dallas Cowboys.
It appeared as if Big Blue had gotten off to a quick start but a penalty nullified an apparent TD.
And that was simply the start of a drive that went in reverse.
A first-and-10 at the Dallas 17 saw Daniel Jones sacked for a 7-yard loss.
Then, the TD was negated by an ineligible man downfield penalty.
The created second-and-22.
Jones threw and an incomplete pass on second down and was called for intentional grounding on third-and-22.
That meant Graham Gano was forced to come on and try a 57-yard field goal.
They nailed it but a drive that had so many prospects turned into one to erase from the memory bank.
