It didn't always look promising for the Cowboys, who trailed by one point midway through the fourth quarter. Facing third-and-9 from the Panthers' 15 with 3:39 to play, Jason Garrett elected to take the ball out of Tony Romo's hands, calling a draw play to Phillip Tanner. It was an interesting decision by Garrett, who put his trust in his defense rather than his quarterback.
That didn't bother Romo.
"You weigh what coverages they've been playing throughout the day," he said, via The Associated Press. "You also look at how well your defense has played throughout the day."
