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.
