Bailey Nails 49-Yard FG in OT To Lift Cowboys To 20-17 Win

Houston Texans v Dallas Cowboys

Dan Bailey kicked a 49-yard field goal in overtime after a miss at the end of regulation ended his franchise record streak of made kicks as the Cowboys topped the Texans 20-17 Sunday.

Bailey’s kick was set up when Tony Romo threw off his back foot with pressure coming and Dez Bryant made a spectacular leaping catch for 37 yards.

“Just got to come down with it, come down with it,” said Bryant, who had game highs with nine catches and 85 yards. “That’s something I always tell Tony. If the ball is in the air, I’m going to try my best to come down with it.”

The Cowboys (4-1) won their fourth straight for the first time since 2011 despite blowing a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter.

Dallas won their fourth straight for the first time since 2011 heading into a trip to Super Bowl champion Seattle, their only road game in a stretch of six games.

”We had to go down and basically win the game twice,” said Romo. ”You just put your work hat on and go out and execute.”

The Cowboys QB threw for 324 yards with two touchdowns with an interception that took away a scoring chance in the fourth quarter.

The Texans (3-2) rallied behind Arian Foster, who had 157 yards rushing and a tying 1-yard score with 41 seconds left in regulation.

Bailey’s miss from 53 yards on the final play of regulation ended a franchise record streak of 30 straight made field goals.

NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray had 136 yards for Dallas, his fifth straight 100-yard game to start the season.
