Two weeks of waiting, kvetching and overanalyzing came down to one game-winning drive for the Dallas Cowboys. When Dan Bailey split the uprights for a 35-yard field goal at time expired, the Cowboys had a much-needed 24-21 win over the New York Giants and the 20th game-winning drive of quarterback Tony Romo’s career.
“It was nut-cuttin’ time and the quarterback did a great job,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told reporters after the game. All told, Romo threw for 250 yards with two touchdowns and one interception, a pedestrian effort — by Romo’s standards. But two weeks after the New Orleans Saints embarrassed the Cowboys in prime time, the win against New York showed Dallas still has some tricks up its sleeve.
