    Jason Garrett provided a few more glimpses into how he responds to specific situations in the loss to New Orleans.

    The Cowboys trailed, 17-0, early in the second quarter when his team faced a fourth-and-1 on the Saints 21-yard line. Instead of attempting a 48-yard field goal, Garrett called for a toss to Marion Barber around right end.

    The Saints stopped the play and took the ball over on downs.

    The Cowboys, still down 17-0, came back on their next possession and had a fourth-and-1 on the 3-yard line. This time David Buehler came in to kick the 21-yard field goal.
