The Dallas Cowboys Come Back to Beat the Minnesota Vikings by a Score of 27-23 on Sunday
The Dallas Cowboys have now moved to 5-4 on the season after their 27-23 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Dallas’ offense struggled to find any kind of consistency, but came up big when they needed to, as Tony Romo would lead the team on a game-winning drive that reached the end zone with only 35 seconds left on the clock. Dwayne Harris (Picture on the left) would be on the receiving end of that pass that was the go-ahead touchdown. That play voided the previous touchdown by Minnesota’s running back Adrian Peterson that gave the Vikings a 23-20 lead late in Sunday’s contest.
Now Peterson would have a solid performance as he rushed for 140 yards on 25 carries with another 37 yards on three catches. But overall, Dallas kept the Vikings aerial attack in check, quarterback Christian Ponder completing 25-of-37 passes for just 236 yards.
“You have to bring your best every play on every Sunday in this league,” Garrett said. “I thought we did a good job hanging in there in this ballgame finding a way to win it. We’ve got to learn from it, move forward and get ready for New Orleans.” That game against the Saints is set for next Sunday at 7:30 pm and can be seen on NBC.
