Dallas Cowboys Rally To Defeat Cleveland Browns, 23-20, In Overtime


The Dallas Cowboys trailed the Cleveland Browns 13-0 at halftime, but they cam out of the locker room for the final 30 minutes as a completely different team.

Dallas put together 17 straight points, before falling behind, 20-17, with just over one minute left.

Tony Romo led the Cowboys down the field to set up a 32-yard game-tying field goal by kicker Dan Bailey. When Dallas and Cleveland went into overtime, it was Bailey’s leg that once again made a big play for Dallas. Bailey kicked a 38-yard field goal straight through the uprights to complete the Cowboys comeback and earn them the win.

It was a much harder game for Dallas than it appeared on paper, but the Browns have proven to be a tough out each and every week.

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was the game’s leading receiver with 12 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown. Rooking running back Trent Richardson led the way for the Browns with 144 total yards.

The win moves the Cowboys to 5-5, while Cleveland falls to 2-8 and has yet to win on the road.
