NFL Score: Dallas' Last Second Game Winning Field Goal over Miami
Thursday, November 24, 2011
by Joe Rodriguez
It was the second straight game-winning kick for Bailey, who booted a 39-yard field goal to help Dallas to a 27-24 overtime victory over the NFC East rival Washington Redskins last week.
Bailey has made 26 straight kicks – one shy of tying the franchise record set by Chris Boniol in 1996.
Tony Romo shook off a pair of early interceptions and threw two touchdowns to Laurent Robinson. Romo improved to 5-0 on Thanksgiving and 19-2 in November, including 13-0 at home during the month.
Rookie DeMarco Murray ran for 87 yards on 22 carries for Dallas.
The Cowboys (7-4) have won four straight for the first time since 2007, but were pushed to the limit by Miami (3-8).
They couldn't finish off Romo and the Cowboys, though. Dallas forced a three-and-out on the Dolphins’ next possession and Romo led a 10-play, 54-yard drive that culminated with Bailey splitting the uprights.
Miami stunned the crowd by scoring the first 10 points of the second half.
The Dolphins took a 16-10 lead late in the third quarter with a five-play, 74-yard drive. Moore kept the drive alive by hitting Brian Hartline for 41 yards on 3rd-and-13. One play later, he hooked up with Brandon Marshall for a 35-yard touchdown.
Romo answered by leading a 77-yard drive that culminated with an 18-yard touchdown pass to Robinson, who has seven touchdowns over the last five games while filling in for Miles Austin (hamstring).
Upcoming games for both teams
Dallas will play their next game on the road against Arizona.
Miami will play their next game at home against Oakland.
