Tynes, Giants spoil opening of Cowboys' stadium

BY foxsports • September 21, 2009

Lawrence Tynes sent home the largest regular-season crowd in NFL history muttering about what might've been.

Tynes kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired, giving the New York Giants a 33-31 victory over the turnover-prone Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night and ruining the debut of their rival's $1.15 billion stadium.

A crowd of 105,121 saw the Cowboys (1-1) go ahead 31-30 on a touchdown run by Felix Jones with 3:40 left. It was the seventh lead change of a game in which neither team led by more than six points and it didn't last.
