It came down to the very last play, but the Atlanta Falcons (8-0) kept their winning streak alive Sunday night at the Georgia Dome as they defeated the Dallas Cowboys (3-5) by a score of 19-13.

With both teams tied 6-6 heading into the fourth quarter, Atlanta eventually got its first lead of the game on a Michael Turner touchdown run with 14:21 left to play. A Matt Bryant field goal made it 16-6 a few minutes later, before the Cowboys came clawing back with a touchdown of their own to get within three.

The Falcons would respond with yet another field goal, giving Romo just 17 seconds to mount a comeback. It wasn't enough time, however, with his last pass going to Felix Jones, who was tackled at Atlanta's 21-yard line as time expired.

Was it Atlanta's prettiest win? Far from it. But facing a Cowboys team that played this game like a must-win situation, the Falcons responded by doing the same to show they mean business this season.

Here's a look at the Falcons' winners and losers from the game.
