NEW YORK GIANTS OVER ARIZONA IN HISTORIC COMEBACK

By Arnie Leshin 
It was quite a comeback, one of historic measures, as the New York Giants, after getting shut out by the Dallas Cowboys in their opener, came from a record 21-point deficit Sunday afternoon to get past Arizona in Glendale, 31-28, before a disappointed crowd of 62,080. 
 
Trailing 20-0 at halftime, the Giants evened their mark at 1-1 when Graham Gano converted a 34-yard field goal with 19 seconds remaining to stun the home team and drop it to 0-2. 
 
Leading the way was quarterback Daniel Jones as he threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns. 
 
It was the biggest rally for the Giants since a 21-point gap in 1949 — also against the Cardinals. For Arizona, it was its biggest lost lead since 2011. 
 
While the Giants were scoreless through one half, the Cards scored a touchdown in the first quarter and added a pair in the second. But they were outscored 31-8 after the intermission.
 
It wound up as a tight tussle, with New York having more first downs, 26-24, more total net yards, 439-379, and more passing yards, 312-228. Jones was 26-for-37 through the air lanes, and the Giants had more penalties, 9-for-75 yards lost to Arizona’s 8-for-57, and in time of possession, it was 30:37 for the Cardinals and 29:33 for the Giants. 
 
On upcoming Thursday night, the Giants play at San Francisco (2-0) in a scheduled 6:15 kickoff. Arizona is home to also 2-0 Dallas on Sunday.
