Saints Steal Cowboy’s Victory with a Late Touchdown

NFL’s New Orleans won against the Dallas Cowboys when they scored a late touchdown and held onto a 30-27 score until the last minute of the game Thursday.

The Saints originally headed the first half of the game with two 17-point leads. However, they needed a touchdown pass from quarterback Drew Brees to wide receiver Lance Moore with only two minutes remaining to achieve their fourth straight win.

During the last three minutes of play, Dallas led the game with a 27-23 score and they looked certain of their victory until free safety Malcolm Jenkins forced the ball out from Dallas receiver Roy Williams as he hustled down the end zone.

The Cowboys head coach Jason Garret said that Roy Williams did a good job protecting the ball in the open field. However, he said that it is just one of the things that one does not want for a great play to turn into a disaster.

The turnover win proved valuable for the New Orleans Saints, with an 8-3 record, they marched 89 yards in about 68 seconds and five plays. This includes the 55-yard pass to wide receiver Robert Meachem that had set up their winning touchdown.

Saints head coach Sean Payton is proud with his team as they hang on all the way to get their victory.

In the second half, the Cowboys had their first lead of the game for the fourth quarter when they scored three rushing touchdowns. They looked poised to add more lead just when Williams lost the ball for the Orleans Saints at 11-yard line.

The Cowboys had the chance to tie the score but David Buehler’s attempt to score a field-goal from 59 yards failed during the final seconds.
