Broncos vs. Cowboys: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
It came down to the wire at AT&T Stadium but ultimately, the Denver Broncos edged the Dallas Cowboys 51-48. It was the No. 4 highest score for a single game in NFL history and one either could have walked away with the victory. The Cowboys will scratch their heads and wonder what went wrong as Denver breathes a sigh of relief on the flight back home.
On the plus side, Monte Kiffin probably nodded off sometime in the 2nd quarter and has no idea any of this happened.— Michael Schottey (@Schottey) October 6, 2013
Bleacher Report's Michael Schottey pokes a little fun at Monte Kiffin's age.

Tony Romo set the single-game record for YPA (14.5) with a minimum of 30 pass attempts.— Bryn Swartz (@eaglescentral) October 6, 2013
Tony Romo set more than a few records today. Here's another one.
Looks like Denver is just going to kneel down until the final seconds to kick the winning field goal. This one looks all but over.
As CBS just noted, this is the fourth-highest scoring game in NFL history already.

LeSean McCoy might not like Knowshon Moreno, but the Denver Broncos sure do right now. He scores the rushing touchdown to tie the game at 48.
Romo has been better than Manning tonight. /ducks— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) October 6, 2013
Bleacher Report's own Matt Miller giving Tony Romo some praise.
Tony Romo passes it to Cole Beasley for the touchdown and tallies over 500 yards passing in this contest. The Cowboys take the lead back here in the fourth quarter.
Tony Romo hasn't been throwing deep. Sources say that's because of rib injury, Bill Callahan approach. Coaches feel he's healthy enough now— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) October 6, 2013
Ed Werder tweeted before this contest started that the Cowboys weren't airing out the ball on offense due to Tony Romo's rib injury earlier in the season.
Werder said the Dallas coaches think Romo felt fine heading into this one, and sure enough, No. 9 looks just perfect today.
Phenomenal moves by Dez Bryant after that long bomb from Tony Romo. A 79-yard pass brings the Cowboys to the Denver 5-yard line.
The Cowboys have to be happy with the amount Dez Bryant has been involved in this game. Can't be happy with the penalties, though.
41-41 with 9:37 to go. You taking QB on pace to break all kinds of records or QB with highest 4th-quarter passer rating in NFL history?— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) October 6, 2013

Two Dallas touchdowns have been a byproduct of pushing off by receivers. Very quiet ones, but push-offs nonetheless.— Steven Cook (@steventerrycook) October 6, 2013
Bleacher Report's Steven Cook thinks the Cowboys are benefiting from a few non-calls in the end zone so far.
Tony Romo has played one of the best games of his career. I think the Broncos are missing Von Miller and Champ Bailey for first time— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) October 6, 2013
Ed Werder is impressed by Tony Romo's play in this game.
Terrance Williams catches the two-point conversion, and suddenly, the Cowboys are up by a field goal.
Just like that, Jason Witten grabs a touchdown for his efforts and the Cowboys are back on top.
Tony Romo getting Jason Witten involved in the passing game again, which is a smart idea for Dallas in this fourth quarter.
Morris Claiborne told me he was tired of hearing Peyton Manning name and ready to go to field and compete. Maligned No,. 1 pick has INT, FR— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) October 6, 2013

Morris Claiborne needed that so bad.— Brad Gagnon (@Brad_Gagnon) October 6, 2013
Hard not to agree with Brad Gagnon here.
