The Dallas Cowboys have defeated the Washington Redskins, 27-24, in a thrilling overtime game at FedEx Field. After Graham Gano missed a 52-yard field goal that would have won the game, the Cowboys took the ball back and won it with a 39-yard field goal for Dan Bailey. Dallas moves to 6-4 with the win, while the Redskins fall to 3-7.

The 26-yard gain brought the ball to the Redskins' 23-yard line and put the Cowboys in position for the game-winner.

The Redskins received the ball at the start of overtime, and Rex Grossman moved the ball into Cowboys' territory. One negative play was an offensive pass interference call on Logan Paulsen. However, the Redskins quickly made that up with a 15-yard pass to Paulsen, a penalty and another pass to Paulsen. Grossman then found Jabar Gaffney for 12 yards down to the Cowboys' 36-yard line. On third down, Grossman took a sack, though, making Gano's field goal more difficult. Gano eventually pushed the kick wide right, and the Cowboys took over on downs.
