The Dallas Cowboys needed a miracle in overtime, and Dez Bryant delivered a spectacular one.
Facing a 3rd-and-8 from Dallas’ 32-yard line with the score tied at 17-17, Tony Romo reared back and threw up a prayer for Bryant, who somehow, someway, hauled in the catch.
Bryant was covered by Houston Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who was doing everything in his power to prevent Bryant from completing the play, but his efforts weren’t rewarded. After bobbling the catch initially, Bryant grabbed the football while being tackled to the ground for a 37-yard gain.
Shortly after, the Cowboys successfully made a 49-yard field goal to win the game and improve to 4-1 on the season.
