Very unlikely we get a TD anyways but it would have been 1st and 10 from like the 25.
Edit: It was 11 minutes left. Dumb mistake but letting there only two receivers Witten and Austin beat us (both should be doubled or help)... let Felix run on us. Brooks inch over off sides cost us 7, Alex's int at our 30 or whatever, Brock standing over a loose ball that would have won us the game, Rogers letting his man go and Whitner biting despite the run game doing nothing all game where just as bad if not worse.
Roders didn't let his man go, we kept running two man coverage and Romo kept eating it up. We should have went man or at least mixed up the coverage more. I know damn well if I was reading the coverage from my couch Romo was reading it.
You can't blame Brooks for that onside, that was just a petty call by the ref.
Can't blame Brock for standing over that ball, even Doug Free didn't know it was out until the last second.
