[Video] Cowboys Wash, Rinse, Repeat Comeback Scenario In Beating Pittsburgh

New, comments

Don't look now but the Cowboys are still fighting for a playoff berth. OK, you can look.

When we last left our perch atop the video mountain, the Cowboys were fresh off a clutch, game winning kick by Dan Bailey against an AFC North team. Yep, we're at it again.

There were plenty of heralded and unsung hero's in this game. The offensive line might have played their best game of the season, giving up only one sack and two quarterback hits on Romo. Romo went over 4,000 yards for the fourth time in a season and over 25,000 for his career. Dez Bryant battled through injuries and Demarco Murray battled through being too broke to buy a belt.

On defense, Anthony Spencer contributed with another sack and a half in a big money year. Sean Lissemore became disruptive in the second half and Marcus Spears chipped in his first sack since Week 5. DeMarcus Ware fought through a hyperextended elbow and shoulder sprain to make key plays down the stretch. Rob Ryan overcame Danny McCray.

Let's not forget to send a special shout out to Pittsburgh's OC Todd Haley. the former head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs must not have thought much of his former corner Brandon Carr, as Big Ben targeted him repeatedly. Three pass breakups and a game-winning interception later...

All in all, it was a great, team effort. Want to know how Dallas improved to 8-6? Check out the recap video, complete with highlights.
