Nick Folk Sends Cowboys into OT; Blocked Punt Wins Game for Cards

Cardinals 30, Cowboys 24

It was a wild game out in the desert in Arizona. The score was 7-0 Arizona in the first quarter in what was supposed to be a high scoring game. J.J. Arrington returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown.

Both punters had atleast five punts in the first quarter alone. I find that amazing. The game sort of started to get better during the second quarter. Tony Romo threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Patrick Crayton to tie the game 7-7 going into half time.

Tony Romo actually got it going in the third quarter when he threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Miles Austin and then he led the Cowboys to within three points on a 70-yard touchdown pass to running back Marion Barber. Romo would also lead a drive to set up a 52-yard Nick Folk field goal to tie the game and send it into overtime.

In overtime, the Dallas Cowboys won the rite to receive. They went three and out and then this happened…

Sean Morey blocked a Matt McBriar punt which was recovered by Monty Beisel for the win.

Romo would go on to throw three touchdown passes total for 321 yards. Barber only managed 45 yards on the ground while having 11 receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown receiving, which led all Cowboy receivers.

Kurt Warner hooked up with Steve Breaston eight times for 102 yards and a touchdown. Larry Fitzgerald also made some phenomenal grabs that tallied up five receptions for 79 yards and a touchdown grab. Warner had 236 yards and two touchdown passes total.

Edgerrin James did not have a great running game only gaining 29 yards.
