The Cowboys suffered their second straight loss this week in New Orleans, evening their record at 2-2. Here is a look at the plays that decided the game –
Joseph Randle gave fans a scare, nearly fumbling as he jumped over the top for the Cowboys first touchdown in the second quarter. However, as seen here, the play was reviewed and the ball broke the goal line.
Randle was immediately consulted on the sideline by coach Garrett, who was unhappy with the ball security on a first down play.
His fellow running back Lance Dunbar was badly injured on the opening kickoff of the second half. All early reports are showing that Dunbar is likely lost for the season.
Sean Lee also went down with a concussion in this game. You can see the helmet to helmet collision that sidelined Lee in these pictures.
The Cowboys would not find the end zone again until late in the fourth quarter when Brandon Weeden found Terrance Williams on fourth down for this beautiful game-tying touchdown.
4th and 7. Brandon Weeden wanted it ALL. He got it ALL. Cue the diving insane Terrance Williams catch #DALvsNO
New Orleans nearly stormed right back on the ensuing drive to answer with a game-winning field goal, but Zack Hocker drilled it off the upright.

However, the Saints would quickly go marching once again – opening the overtime period with a touchdown on just the second snap. Drew Brees found a wide open C.J. Spiller, who went 80 yards to end the game.
Look away, Cowboys Nation.

Terrance Williams and the Cowboys will look to make more memorable plays this week as the team returns home to square off against the Patriots.
