ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cowboys extended their season-saving winning streak to three games Sunday with a dramatic 27-24 overtime victory
over the Pittsburgh Steelers
The Cowboys' playoff hopes received a big boost when Brandon Carr
intercepted Ben Roethlisberger
and returned it 36 yards to set up Dan Bailey
's game-winning 21-yard kick.
When it was over, Miles Austin
was joyfully pushing coach Jason Garrett, and Jason Hatcher
was hugging him. Emotions are high for the Cowboys with two games remaining in the regular season.
What it means:
The Cowboys are in a three-way tie for first place in the NFC East. However, the Cowboys own the tiebreaker over the New York Giants
because they have a better division record. Washington is in first place because it owns the tiebreaker over the Cowboys thanks to the Redskins' Thanksgiving Day victory.
