In the New York Giants' Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie changed the game with a 58-yard interception returned for a touchdown. His decision to celebrate with 40 yards to go after just crossing the 50-yard line probably won't win him any favor with head coach Tom Coughlin. 

The touchdown pulled the Giants ahead 17-13 in the third quarter.  It was Rodgers-Cromartie's 22nd career interception. Later, in the fourth quarter, Rodgers-Cromartie made it 23 career interceptions by undercutting a slant. On the run back, he tried his best for a repeat performance but it wasn't meant to be.
