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
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.
