The Dallas Cowboys didn't make things easy for themselves against the New York Giants but squeaked out a much-needed 24-21 road win. Tony Romo led his offense down the field late in the fourth quarter to set Dan Bailey up with his game-winning 35-yard field goal.
While the setup to the victory sounds like the ending to a great game, this one for the most part was anything but. Both the Cowboys and Giants were sloppy on both sides of the football and flirted with yellow flags all day.
Even with a few miscues, Dallas came out as the less ugly team and was able to win a crucial division game. Here are eight takeaways from the Cowboys' sixth win of the season.
