Dallas Vs. Miami Final: Cowboys Win 20-19 On Last Second Field Goal

Dan Bailey connected on a 28-yard field goal as time expired to give the Dallas Cowboys an important 20-19 Thanksgiving Day win over the Miami Dolphins. Tony Romo drove the Cowboys 54 yards in 10 plays in the final three minutes to momentarily put the Cowboys in first place in the NFC East.

Laurent Robinson caught his second touchdown pass of the game just 23 seconds into the fourth quarter to give the Cowboys a 17-16 lead. The Dolphins were able to respond, however, with a lengthy 14 play, 76-yard drive to take a 19-17 lead on a 23-yard field goal. The Dolphins then forced a punt on Dallas' next possession, but the Dolphins could not do anything with the following possession.

Romo threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns, but also threw a pair of interceptions in the first quarter. Robinson caught 7 passes for 79 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Dallas. Demarco Murray also finished with 87 yards rushing.
