EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Gareon Conley Raiders Jersey .J. -- Looking at the New York Giants defensive effort against the Dallas Cowboys, any one of the 11 players on the field could have been singled out.Defensive end Olivier Vernon was dominant up front. Tackle Damon Harrison plugged the middle. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins delivered another shutdown performance against Dez Bryant.The money players on Steve Spagnuolos big bucks defense stepped up and earned their keep in limiting the Cowboys to a season-low 260 yards and seven points .So did the rookie free agent that most people still dont know much about: 21-year-old Romeo Okwara .Okwara took over at left end with Jason Pierre-Paul sidelined for the rest of the regular season following surgery for a sports hernia. He delivered a JPP-type performance.Okwara led the defense with eight tackles, a sack, three quarterback hurries and a tipped pass.He played big. Theres some stuff we have to clean up, not only him, everybody along the line, Harrison said. He got his first sack. I was happy for him. He got in there a couple times on some big plays.We have faith in him, thats why coach started him. You know if it wasnt for that he wouldnt be out there. We knew what he was capable of, it was just a matter of him going out there and showing it.Coach Ben McAdoo described Okwara as a young, conscientious, hard-working player.He really takes to coaching. He learned the system quickly and plays the game hard, McAdoo said Monday in reviewing Sunday nights 10-7 win at MetLife Stadium.Heading into the game, the plan was to have Okwara and veteran Kerry Wynn split time at left end. Okwara, who had gotten limited action this season with Pierre-Paul on the field more than 90 percent of the time, ended up getting 60 snaps.With the way he was playing, he was hot, McAdoo said. We wanted to let him roll in there.Everything wasnt perfect for Okwara. Ezekiel Elliott ran for 107 yards and he got a good chunk of his yards attacking the left side of New Yorks defense -- Okwaras side.Part of that could have been chalked up to some early nerves, but the Nigerian-born player settled down.Even with Romeo being young, he is big, physical, and hes a guy that learns the playbook, came in, jelling well, and hes going to play hard, cornerback Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie said. Its not a JPP, but at the end of the day, you still have guys that can play.Pierre-Paul addressed the team on the field before the game. Okwara said his message was to go out and play ball.The defense did, particularly Okwara.I think if you play defensive football the way we played defensive football last night, youre always in the ballgame and have a chance to win, McAdoo said.The Giants (9-4) now have won seven of their last eight games and control their playoff chances. They trail the Cowboys (11-2) by two games in the NFC East. However, they have are the No. 1 team in the wild-card race with three games left.It was a really important game for us, Okwara said. It was a divisional game, and hopefully we will get them in the future. Everyone played really well, we played great as a defense, and it was a great team win.Game notes RB Shane Vereen is in the concussion protocol after being injured in his first game since being activated off injured reserve following a triceps problem. ... While it looked that S Andrew Adams blew his coverage on Dak Prescotts touchdown pass to Terrance Williams, McAdoo said it wasnt his responsibility. The coach didnt say who was responsible, but one teammate said it was Rodgers-Cromartie. ... The Giants are 6-1 at home, tying their highest victory total in MetLife Stadium since it opened in 2010. They were 6-2 in 2012.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Marshawn Lynch Youth Jersey .

Brandon Parrish hit 3-pointers both times.Parrish scored 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting in his first start of the season, including those big 3s in a 35-second span as the Horned Frogs went on to a 79-60 victory over Jacksonville State on Friday night. They improved to 3-0 under new coach Jamie Dixon.It was a big momentum shift in the game, coach called the right play, and we executed really well, Parrish said. My guys got me the ball in open areas, and I just shot it with confidence.The only player to start every TCU game last season, Parrish had come off the bench the first two games. The 6-foot-6 senior started against Jacksonville State (1-3) while second-leading scorer JD Miller served a one-game suspension for violation of team rules. Dixon said Miller would be back for the next game.Freshman guard Desmond Bane has been in double figures in all three games for TCU after scoring 14 points. Alex Robinson, the former Texas A&M transfer who had to sit out last season, had 10 points and five assists.Malcolm Drumwright led the Gamecocks with 19 points. Norbertas Giga and Erik Durham each had 11 points and eight rebounds.After Jacksonville State cut the gap to 36-35 right after halftime, Parrish had the consecutive 3-pointers. The first was from the left side in front of the TCU bench, and then he hit from the right corner.His attitude, his energy -- if he was back next year, Id have him run for student body president, Dixon said. It would be good.BIG PICTUREJacksonville State: The Gamecocks and first-year coach Ray Harper are piling up the miles together. Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey. This was their fourth consecutive road game to start the season. They will play 15 of their first 16 games away from their Alabama campus.TCU: The Horned Frogs are coming together under coach Jamie Dixon, with a mix of veteran players and talented freshmen. The return of Kenrich Williams is a boost, as he was the teams top rebounder as a sophomore two years ago before microfracture knee surgery. In his first game since the 2015 Big 12 tournament, he had nine points in 20 minutes.BUILDING TRUSTParrish said the biggest thing being stressed by Dixon is playing together. We can build trust amongst each other, so when were out there on the court, we can hold each other accountable and we can trust each other to be in the right spot and doing the right things, Parrish said. Were going to be a better team overall.BETTER THAN HALF WITH FEW GIVEAWAYSTCU shot 50 percent overall (28 of 56) and was just slightly better on 3-pointers by hitting 52 percent (11 of 21). Along with the good shooting, the Frogs had only eight turnovers.UP NEXTJacksonville State plays its first home game under Harper on Tuesday night against Dalton State College, their only game at home until Jan. 5.TCU wraps up its season-opening four-game homestand Monday against Illinois State before going to Las Vegas for two games.
