CINCINNATI - Under normal circumstances, winning out the remainder of the season and grabbing a playoff spot would be the most important thing to the Cowboys.
But Sunday's game against Cincinnati was anything but normal.
The Cowboys rallied from a 9-point fourth quarter deficit to beat Cincinnati 20-19, ending a turmultous week that saw the death of teammate Jerry Brown.
Dallas found themselves down 19-10 entering the fourth quarter, when Tony Romy hit Dez Bryant on a 27-yard touchdown pass, closing the gap to 19-17.
Minutes later, Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey drilled a 40-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Cowboys to their second straight win.
The win moves Dallas to 7-6, tying them with Washington for second place in the NFC East behind the New York Giants.
Dallas returns to Arlington to host the Steelers on Sunday, Dec. 16th.
