    It took nearly an extra nine minutes, but the Cowboys got it done in overtime.

    A 38-yard field goal from Dan Bailey lifted the Cowboys to a 23-20 win with 6:07 to play, capping a seven-play, 28-yard drive.

    An exchange of punts converted the game to sudden death, and gave the Cowboys the ball on the Cleveland 48. Three plays later, a pass to Cowboys receiver Miles Austin looked like a catch and a fumble, recovered by the Browns. The ruling on the field was incomplete pass, and the replay assistant inexplicably didn’t buzz down for a replay review.

    Yeah I heard it too. That idiot Norm Hitzges is adamant in saying that was a football move and a fumble. Hitzges is an idiot just read his book about the 90s Cowboys 'Greatest Team Ever' and it's full of errors.

    Pretty sure it wasn't a fumble, but whatever--just like last week's Dez TD--even if it could be reviewed--the call on the field had to stand.
