Dan Bailey (#5) of the Dallas Cowboys misses a field goal late in the fourth quarter that was blocked by Jason Pierre-Paul (#90) of the New York Giants at Cowboys Stadium on Dec. 11in Arlington, Texas.
"This is huge, another fourth-quarter comeback," Manning said. "Last week we had something similar (against Green Bay) and couldn't hold onto it. This week we held on it and got the win. ... Now we know we have a tough road ahead of us. It's going to come down to the final weeks to win games."
The Cowboys lost their second straight, both in dramatic, frustrating fashion that involved missed kicks by rookie Dan Bailey, who'd been so good for so long this season. The really bad news for Dallas was running back DeMarco Murray breaking his right ankle, ending his record-setting rookie season.
"We certainly know we've got our work cut out for us," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a brief statement.

Quarterback Tim Tebow (#15) of the Denver Broncos scrambles against the Chicago Bears at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Dec. 11, in Denver, Colo. The Broncos defeated the Bears 13-10 in overtime.
As for the Tim Tebow and crew, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher isn't overly impressed with the QB who is in only his second season according to PFT:
Asked for his thoughts on Tebow after the game, Brian Urlacher was succinct.
“He’s a good running back, man. He runs the ball well,” Urlacher said.
The Bears mostly kept Tebow’s running in check; he had 49 rushing yards. It was Tebow’s 18 completions in the fourth quarter and overtime that really hurt Chicago.
Not bad for a running back.
