Romo rallies Cowboys playing with fractured rib

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Playing with a fractured rib, Tony Romo hit

Jesse Holley on a 77-yard completion on the Cowboys' first play of

overtime that set up Dan Bailey's winning 19-yard field goal, and

Dallas rallied for a 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on

Sunday.

It was an exact reverse of what happened a week earlier: a 27-24

road loss to the Jets after Dallas blew a late 14-point lead. Romo

vowed to play his "best game" after his late interception

contributed to that collapse.

Bailey kicked a tying 48-yard field goal as time expired in

regulation after missing an early 21-yard attempt.

Romo completed five of six passes on the tying drive, connecting

on consecutive throws to Holley before finding him again in OT.

Miles Austin made three touchdown receptions among his nine

catches, leaping over a defender and diving into the end zone to

pull Dallas within 24-21 with 6:55 to play.
