    The Dallas Cowboys lost one of their own on Saturday, but persevered at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive in the wake of Jerry Brown's death.

    Facing a Cincinnati Bengals team riding a four-game winning streak, Dallas trailed by nine midway through the fourth quarter, then rallied to steal a 20-19 decision on Dan Bailey's 40-yard field goal as time expired.

    Brown, a linebacker on the Cowboys' practice squad, was killed in a one-car accident with teammate Josh Price-Brent identified as the driver and subsequently arrested on intoxication manslaughter charges.

    There was a moment of silence held for Brown before the game, which came down to the final seconds after Dez Bryant caught a 27-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo with 6:35 remaining, cutting the Cowboys' deficit to 19-17.

    Romo moved Dallas into field goal range in the final minute, and Bailey split the uprights for the Cowboys' fourth win in five games.

    I am shocked! I always thought that if the team with the lead (Bengals) entered into 'conservative offense-prevent defense' mode that they would manage to win, especially in a one possession game!

    When will coaches freaking learn already?
