The game was tied at 17 headed into the fourth quarter before the Cowboys began to click on all cylinders.

It began when Dwyane Harris returned a punt return 78-yards for a touchdown for the Cowboys (4-5).  It was their first return touchdown of any kind this season.

A few plays later, cornerback Brandon Carr intercepted Foles and returned it 47 yards for a touchdown to all but ice the game for the Cowboys.
