Nov. 11, 1962 - The New York Giants’ offense is becoming so efficient these days that it is sometimes easy to overlook the defense, which was once the club’s strongest point by far. As the Giants raced to a 41-10 thrashing of the Dallas Cowboys today, each of these Giant units was at peak efficiency. Obvious was the renewed excellence of Y.A. Tittle (#14) and his friends on offense. They went over and through the Cowboys virtually at will before 45,668 fans in the Cotton Bowl. Just as obvious was the strength of a defense that held the explosive Cowboys to only 10 points. Prior to this game, Dallas had been the scoring leaders of the NFL. This is no longer the case. The Giants, on their way to winning their seventh game of the season against 2 losses, gained 446 yards — 340 through the air.
