Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said last week that if they were within two scores in the fourth quarter, they felt like they’d win.
But despite erasing a 31-17 deficit in the final 3:35 of regulation, they still fell 34-31 to the Saints in overtime.
The loss dropped the Cowboys to 8-7, forcing them to watch scoreboards instead of controlling their own destiny.
Garrett Hartley was able to kick the chip-shot field goal to win after Saints tight end Jimmy Graham recovered a fumble after a Marques Colston catch. After a lengthy review, the play stood as called, and the Saints left Cowboys Stadium shocked.
