Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo played a significant portion of yesterday’s game with a fractured rib as he led the Cowboys to a 27-24 overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers had a 14-7 lead at halftime and they stretched it out to 24-14 early in the 4th quarter.  Romo then led the Cowboys on two scoring drives to tie the game at the end of regulation.  The first drive was capped by a 25 yard touchdown pass to Miles Austin and the tying field goal was a 48 yarder kicked by Dan Bailey.

Overtime started with 49ers receiving a Cowboys kickoff, but they had to punt the ball away after 4 plays.
