VIDEO: LaRod Stephens-Howling Rumbles Through Dallas Defense For Long OT TD

LaRod Stephens-Howling just posted his entry for NFL play of the year. On a 1st-15 from the Arizona 48, Stephens-Howling took a screen pass and ran though most of the Dallas defense for a game-winning, overtime touchdown. Check it out:


Dan Bailey had made an apparent game-winning field goal at the end of regulation for the Cowboys, but Jason Garrett was granted a timeout just as Dallas snapped the ball. Bailey, of course, missed the second try and brought on overtime.

The Cardinals won the toss and ran into a 2nd-19 deep in their territory, but Terence Newman committed a needless pass interference, giving the Cardinals a first down at their 34. Kevin Kolb hit Andre Roberts for a 16-yard gain that moved the ball into Dallas territory. After a false start, he made a nice play to avoid Anthony Spencer and hit Stephens-Howling for the wide screen. Stephens-Howling did the rest, running through several Cowboys to reach the end zone. The loss drops Dallas to 7-5 and puts their playoff hopes back in question.
