Cowboys Help Irvin to Pro Bowl Triumph

The Cowboys finished their year by winning a game in Glendale. A late-January win at the site of the Super Bowl never rang so hollow.

Team Irvin got a late touchdown catch from the Saints’ Jimmy Graham and several contributions from seven Cowboys to win the Pro Bowl, 32-28, Sunday night. On the same field next Sunday the Seahawks and Patriots will play for the NFL championship.

Though they still feel an officiating error cost them a chance at playing in the Super Bowl, the Cowboys, their coaching staff and a sellout crowd of over 63,000 enjoyed the Pro Bowl.

Quarterback Tony Romo completed 4 of 6 passes for 43 yards. DeMarco Murray gained 18 yards on three carries and caught a 9-yard pass. And tight end Jason Witten caught 4 passes for 32 yards. The bulk of the Cowboys’ representatives played on Team Irvin, the Ring of Honor member.
