UNDATED (AP) The 6-3 New York Giants will be looking to retain sole possession of 1st place in the NFC East when they take the field Monday night in Jacksonville. The 2nd place Dallas Cowboys improved to 6-4 Sunday night by handing Indianapolis its first loss of the season.

At 5-4, the Jaguars are pretty much relegated to playing for a wild-card playoff berth. They trail the AFC South-leading Colts by four games headed into the NFL's Week-11 finale.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin will be making his first appearance at Alltel Stadium since being fired as the Jags' head coach in 2002.
