Thanks to some bad clock management from New York though, Dallas got one more chance to win and Tony Romo didn’t waste it.
After the Giants kicked a field goal with 1:34 left to play to go up 26-20, the Cowboys got the ball back at their own 28-yard line with no timeouts and just 89 seconds showing on the clock.
The number on the clock could’ve been lower, but before the Giants kicked their field goal, they threw an incomplete pass. If New York had run the ball, they could’ve shaved another 35 seconds off the clock since Dallas was out of timeouts.
Instead, Romo and the Cowboys got the ball with the extra time on the clock.
In only five plays, the Cowboys quarterback led his team down to the Giants’ 11-yard line where he completed the improbably comeback by throwing a touchdown pass to Jason Witten.
