Dallas Cowboys Stage Comeback Win Over Detroit Lions

The Dallas Cowboys overcame a 10-point deficit at halftime to beat the Detroit Lions at AT&T Stadium on Sunday for a win that will send “America’s Team” to the Divisional Round of the playoffs. After falling behind by two touchdowns in the first quarter, the Cowboys began a steady comeback in the second quarter with a 76-yard touchdown pass to WR Terrance Williams. After Detroit made a field goal late in the second quarter and another early in the third, the Cowboys responded with 17 unanswered points, giving Dallas the win with a final score of 24-20. While the victory was an important win for a franchise that hasn’t made a playoff appearance since 2009, it was also a vindication of sorts for Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo. Romo’s long-term future with the team had been called into question by some pundits before the 2014 season due to a recurring back injury and his lack of playoff experience. “These are hard wins to come by. I think it’s hard to get in the playoffs,” said Romo in a postgame press conference. “Just to give yourself a chance to win the division is hard.” Give yourself a chance to see the Cowboys make their next big win in person with a discount Dallas Cowboys PSL from PSL Source!

While the Cowboys definitely earned their victory on Sunday, the game was marred by some questionable officiating. After an initial pass interference penalty call on Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens, officials reversed their decision without explanation. On the other hand, the Lions failed to take advantage of other opportunities in subsequent plays that would have made the controversial call irrelevant. While Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett initially tried to avoid commenting on the call, he later noted in a press conference that, “I think it’s best when the official who’s closest to the play has the final say.” The Dallas Cowboys will face the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday January 11 for the NFC divisional playoffs.
