Dallas is tied for first
Carr’s interception in OT sets up winning field goal for Cowboys, who force 3-way tie atop NFC East.
ARLINGTON, TExAs — Brandon Carr found a way to silence thousands of Terrible Towelwaving Pittsburgh fans at Cowboys Stadium and send the Dallas crowd home happy.
The Cowboys cornerback intercepted a Ben Roeth- lisberger pass in overtime, returned it 36 yards to the 1, and Dan Bailey kicked a 21yard field goal for a 27-24 win over the Steelers on Sunday.
Bailey’s kick — 1:24 into OT — won a game for the second straight week since Dallas practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown was killed in a one-car accident that led to manslaughter charges against teammate Josh Brent.
The win pulled the Cowboys (8-6) into a three-way tie for first place in the NFC East with the Giants and Redskins with two games left in the season. Dallas has won five of its last six.
