35. 123. 29. 47. Final/OT

What. A. Game. The Dallas Cowboys went into Foxborough and defeated the New England Patriots 35-29 in overtime. This was easily the most thrilling game of the season thus far and the Cowboys had to earn every bit of this win.

This action-packed game was a roller coaster of emotions for Cowboys fans. Despite failing to convert on fourth down twice and committing an abundance of penalties the team gave themselves a chance to win in the final minutes.

That game was so awesome we should all relive the best moments from it. So without further ado, here are the top moments from the incredible 35-29 victory over the Patriots.

Dallas Cowboys: 6. Randy Gregory strip-sack

Defensive end Randy Gregory has been fantastic this year for the Cowboys and that continued on Sunday. In the first quarter, the Cowboys trailed 14-7 and just threw an interception in the end zone. They needed a spark.

Gregory came through, flew off the ball, and beat the Patriots’ right tackle Yodny Cajuste, smashing into Mac Jones to force a fumble.

Playing without defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, Gregory has stepped up like the star pass-rusher the Cowboys selected him to be back in 2015. His speed and quickness are off the charts for an edge rusher,

As seen here, this was the fastest sack of Gregory’s career as he continues to be a constant disruptor on the defensive line. Gregory now has four sacks on the season, but his pressures and constant disruption remain noticeable.

I can’t say enough about how well Gregory is playing, in his contract year, setting himself up for a nice payday.
