Eli Manning is taking the blame for two late blunders that led to the New York Giants' collapse against the Dallas Cowboys.
After losing track of Dallas' timeouts, Manning says — on his own — he told halfback Rashad Jennings not to score on two consecutive plays when the Giants had a first down at the Cowboys 4-yard line with 1:54 to play.
Manning believed Dallas had one timeout remaining when it had two.
"It's my mistake,'' Manning said. "It did not come from the sideline."
Jennings had runs of 2 and 1 yard to the Dallas 1 when Manning made his second mistake. He threw the ball away on third down. He admits he should have taken a sack and milked the clock.
Josh Brown's field goal gave the Giants a 26-20 lead with 1:34 left, but Tony Romo drove the Cowboys to a winning touchdown with seven seconds left.
•Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant underwent surgery to repair the fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot he suffered in Sunday night's win over the Giants. Coach Jason Garrett and other club officials have announced a four-to-six week time frame for his return.
•Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who took a helmet to his right elbow during Sunday's game at San Diego, said he'll be fine for the Week 2 game against the Vikings.
•Raiders quarterback Derek Carr's has a bruised right (throwing) hand, and the team is hopeful he can play Sunday against Baltimore.
•Colts Pro Bowl receiver T.Y. Hilton did not sustain any structural damage to his left knee and could play next week.
•Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson could miss three to four because of a strained left hamstring.
•Cardinals running back Andre Ellington has a sprained right knee, an injury that's less serious than initially feared.
•The NFL says it will take no action against Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh after he dislodged the helmet of Redskins running back Alfred Morris. The contact by Suh following a play was determined not to be a kick, the league said following a review.
