Peyton Manning throws a pick, Cowboys rallying

The Broncos have done their customary number on the Cowboys defense through three quarters, but the Cowboys are giving it right back to them.

And thanks to Peyton Manning’s first interception of the year, they have a shot to take the lead.

Denver leads 38-33 after three quarters of a game that has seen just 13 incomplete passes by the two quarterbacks. Peyton Manning opened the second half with his fourth touchdown pass of the game, but Tony Romo answered right back with an 82-yard bomb to Terrance Williams to keep pace. The Cowboys defense then came up with a stop on third down to limit Denver to a field goal and Romo led the team right back down the field for Dez Bryant’s second touchdown catch of the day.

Manning underthrew Eric Decker on his next pass and Morris Claiborne came up with an interception to halt Manning’s run at 20 touchdowns without an interception. Romo hasn’t been picked and has completed 19-of-27 passes for 362 yards and three touchdowns thus far.

Should he continue to put up Manning-like numbers, the Broncos may see their winning streak come to an end as well.

UPDATE 7:00 p.m. ET: The Cowboys turned the interception into a Jason Witten touchdown catch. Romo hit Williams for two to make it 41-38 Cowboys in the fourth quarter.

    Game proves the broncos defense is not very good. They just have cushy leads that inflates their stats.

    Just like at Indy. You can’t expect Manning to throw 6 TD passes every game.

    YOU GOT TO HAVE A DEFENCE TO WIN IT ALL IN THE NFL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you play Denver close and keep their defense on the field, they don’t look that fast anymore. Just like the playoffs against the Ravens.

    Megahead can’t play defense and neither can anybody else.

    Megahead can’t throw deep either.

    If Cowboys do win this game, it will of no help from officials.

    The refs are trying to swing it to Manning but the defense may be just too bad.

    50 points to Dallas????


    Don’t worry fans of either of these two teams.

    Defense is never important in the playoffs.

    ha ha ha ha ha

    Good game for both teams hats off to the cowboys for giving the broncos the toughest game of the season . I’m a cowboys fan and I see no shame in this loss. It was heartbreaking to see them lose at the end. But the did not kill us by 20 or more points and I really don’t think KM did that bad McCoy is just mad cuz the broncos stomped a mud hole in them last week. GO COWBOYS!!!!

    Great game for ROMO and Mannning, ya Romo threw that pick in the last two min but lets be honest the game wouldn’t have been even close of it weren’t for Romo period! On another note neither defenses showed up to play today but none the less fun game to watch.
