Cowboys Beat Texans in OT, 20-17

Dallas needed overtime to top their in-state rivals on Sunday



    The Dallas Cowboys beat the Houston Texans on Sunday, but they needed overtime and a miraculous catch from Dez Bryant to do so.

    The Cowboys went to half with a 3-0 lead, on a 33-yard field goal from Dan Bailey, but the scoring opened up in the second half.

    Arian Foster capped a 71-yard drive with a 15-yard touchdown run to take the lead at 7-3. He finished with 157 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries.

    The Cowboys answered with touchdown catches from Terrance Williams, for 43 yards, and Dez Bryant, for two. After that, it was 17-7 Dallas.

    Houston came back with a field goal from Randy Bullock and Foster’s second rushing touchdown of the day to tie it up at 17-17. Bailey’s streak of 30 consecutive field goals made came to an end at the end of regulation.

    However, Bailey redeemed himself with a 49-yard field goal in overtime to give Dallas the 20-17 win.
