The Dallas Cowboys got a little luck in the 102nd meeting between the NFL's longest rivalry. Washington's Graham Gano missed a 52-yard field goal in overtime, then Tony Romo hit Dez Bryant for a 26-yard gain on 3rd and 15, leading to a Dan Bailey 39-yard game winning field goal and a 27-24 Cowboys overtime victory.
Romo was a solid 23-37 for 292 yards and three touchdowns, and for the third straight week, did not have a turnover. In fact, Dallas forced two turnovers and had zero on the day.
Dallas (6-4) has won three in a row, while the Redskins have lost six in a row. Dallas will host Miami on Thanksgiving day.
