Going into the end of regulation on Sunday, Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey had made a franchise record 30 consecutive field goals. That streak ended there, as Bailey missed the potential game-winning 53-yarder wide left, sending the game into overtime.
In overtime, Bailey found redemption, hitting a 49-yarder to win the game for the Cowboys, 20-17 over the Texans.
“Your expectation going out is you want to make them all,” Bailey told the team’s website. “When you don’t, that next opportunity can’t come fast enough. But, you know, the reality of the game is that sometimes they do come up like they did today, and you’ve just got to go out there and hopefully knock it through.”
Bailey is now 10 for 11 on field goals in 2014.
“That’s just the reality of the situation,” Bailey said. ‘”Sometimes you’re going to get another shot, and you’ve got to be ready. As a unit, we just try to approach it as going 1-for-1. Obviously, went 0-for-1 on that one, but we knew we might get another shot. You just have to kind of put that behind you and move on to the next one.”
