Bailey's OT Kick Lifts Cowboys over Texans 20-17

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dan Bailey kicked a 49-yard field goal in overtime after a miss at the end of regulation ended his franchise record streak of made kicks, and the Dallas Cowboys beat the Houston Texans 20-17 on Sunday.

Bailey’s kick was set up when Tony Romo threw off his back foot with pressure coming and Dez Bryant made a spectacular leaping catch for 37 yards.

The Cowboys (4-1) won their fourth straight for the first time since 2011 despite blowing a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter.

The Texans (3-2) rallied behind Arian Foster, who had 157 yards rushing and a tying 1-yard score with 41 seconds left in regulation.

Bailey’s miss from 53 yards on the final play of regulation ended a franchise record streak of 30 straight made field goals.
