Cowboys complete stunning comeback

Marion Barber AP

Though it’s entirely possible that the Saints will score again by the time we post this, the Cowboys have completed the climb out of a 17-0 hole, taking a 27-23 lead late in Thursday’s game between the two NFC foes.

After eschewing a 53-yard field goal try that would have tied the game, opting instead for a busted-play drop-kick-style punt from Mat McBriar that was followed by a tipped ball interception of Drew Brees, the Cowboys drove down the field in seven plays.  Tashard Choice capped the effort with his first touchdown of the season, a one-yard touchdown plunge.

Less than six minutes remain.

UPDATE:  The Saints didn’t score.  And the Cowboys have the ball back.  With 4:10 to play.

    Very impressive game …… I know the Saints aren’t playing up to last year’s level, but they’re still the Saints. Jason Garrett has got this team FIRED UP and playing balls-out. All you Cowboys fans who said after Phillips got canned that Garrett was a poor choice to replace him, THINK AGAIN!

    update: then Roy Williams coughed the ball up to the good M Jenkins and Terrance Newman got beat deep for the 1,000 time this year
