Cowboys Vs. Patriots Final: Tom Brady Leads Game Winning Comeback Drive, New England Wins 20-16

Tom Brady captured his 115th regular season win with a vintage comeback drive, down three points with under three minutes to play, to lead New England to a 20-16 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Tony Romo had an All-Pro afternoon, finishing 27 of 41 for 317 yards, one touchdown and one interception, but couldn’t respond to Brady’s game winning drive down four with 22 seconds left. The Cowboys would settle for field goals instead of touchdowns in the red zone on three drives Sunday – twice after intercepting Brady.

The Cowboys managed only 87 yards rushing after starting running back Felix Jones went down with a sprained left ankle before halftime. DeMarco Murray finished with 32 yards on ten carries.

The Dallas defense held New England scoreless until Brady’s final drive, an 80-yard effort that followed a Cowboys field goal.
