1. Jason Garrett's clock management skills are lacking: Facing 3rd and 11 with about half a minute left in the 4th quarter, Tony Romo found Dez Bryant for a 15-yard pick up over the middle. But rather than using of his two time outs and stopping the clock with 26 seconds to go, Garrett opted to let the clock run down to the final seconds and settle for a 49-yard field goal attempt. Perhaps even more baffling, Garrett then called a timeout just seconds before Dan Bailey attempted the field goal, effectively icing his own kicker. Bailey's second attempt sailed wide left.
