Dallas Rallies in OT to Beat Houston 20-17
The Dallas Cowboys would blow a ten point lead in the fourth quarter and kicker Dan Bailey missed a field at the end of regulation to give the Houston Texans plenty of chances to complete the comeback on Sunday. They were able to to take advantage of those opportunities as they fell short in OT thanks to a 49-yard field goal by Bailey to seal the 20-17 win for Dallas.
"We had to go down and basically win the game twice," said Romo, who threw for 324 yards with two touchdowns with an interception that took away a scoring chance in the fourth quarter. "You just put your work hat on and go out and execute." The run game was at it again as Demarco Murray continued his streak of 100 plus yards rushing for the fifth game in a row. He did have his fourth fumble of the season in the win, but Murray proved again to be the heart of the Cowboy offense. He continues to lead the NFL in rushing as he now has 670 yards total (134 yards per game).
Dallas will now turn their attention to the Seattle Seahawks as they make the trip out west. Kickoff for this game is set for 3:25pm from Centurylink Field in Seattle and can be seen on FOX.
