The Denver Broncos Outlast the Dallas Cowboys 51-48


Oct 6, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (9) throws in the pocket against the Denver Broncos at AT

This was an incredible game that came down to one play at the end of the game.  The Peyton Manning led offense had their way with the Cowboys defense for most of the day.  Dallas was not able to put pressure on Manning, which is the case for every team that he faces.

Tony Romo however had a career game and was able to keep Dallas in this game.  Romo continually made big-time throws when they needed them the most, until the end of the game that is.

Morris Claiborne had some-what of a redemption game, recovering a fumble and making a huge interception in the second half.  That pick was what enabled the Cowboys to take the lead and the momentum from the Broncos.

The Cowboys were able to fight through more penalties and a fumble by Dez Bryant to stay in this game untill the end.

The Broncos scored the game-tying touchdown with 2:36 left in the game.  Romo was sacked on first down and was pressured on the second play, which resulted in the heart-sinking interception.  The Broncos were able to bleed the clock and kick the game winning feild goal as time expired.

Game Ball:  Tony Romo, he played an amazing game regardless of the interception at the end.  This would have been a 60-0 game without him under center.  Romo and the Cowboys have nothing to be ashamed of.  They fought hard, which has been a characteristic they have had under Garrett.

Whats Next:  The Cowboys now have two straight games against division rivials, The Redskins and The Eagles.  These are huge games that the Cowboys have to find a way to win.  The Dallas defense need some major help.
