Jon Kitna passed for 327 yards and three touchdowns and the Dallas Cowboys looked revitalized under interim coach Jason Garrett in a 33-20 victory that served as reality check for the New York Giants on Sunday.


Kitna had TD passes of 13 yards to rookie Dez Bryant, 71 to halfback Felix Jones and 24 to Miles Austin as Dallas (2-7) snapped a five-game losing streak in its first game since Garrett replaced Wade Phillips.

Rookie cornerback Bryan McCann scored on a team-record 101-yard interception return in a game highlighted by big plays and two third-quarter power failures that delayed the game for 11 minutes.

Eli Manning threw two touchdown passes for the Giants (6-3), who had a five-game winning steak snapped.

If Jerry Jones had dumped Wade Phillps in favor of Jason Garrett 4 weeks ago, the Cowboys would likely be 4 and 3 instead of 2 and 7.
