The Cowboys held of a 15-point Buccaneers third quarter rally to improve to 8-6 on the year. The fourth quarter saw no points by either team. The Cowboys were concentrating on not having the same result that have plagued them this year by giving up a second half lead before ultimately losing. The Cowboys offense pulled itself back in and ran the ball more often than passing to run the clock down.
The Bucs made an attempt to get back in this game on their first drive of the fourth quarter and even converting a fourth down attempt, but they were unable to move the ball and turned the ball over on their second fourth down attempt of the drive.
