Week 11 NFL Scores And Results: Dallas Cowboys Beat Washington Redskins, Keep Pressure On Giants

The Dallas Cowboys are right on the heels of the New York Giants in the race for the NFC East title

The Dallas Cowboys kept the pressure on the New York Giants in the NFC East Sunday afternoon, defeating the Washington Redskins, 27-24, in overtime. Dallas is now 6-4 and has won three straight games. The Giants (6-3) host the Philadelphia Eagles in the Sunday Night Football matchup (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC). 

Dan Bailey kicked a game-winning 39-yard field goal for the Cowboys after Washington's Graham Gano had missed a 52-yarder earlier in overtime that would have given the Redskins the victory. Washington (3-7) has now lost six straight games.

Washington forced the overtime when quarterback Rex Grossman completed a 19-yard touchdown pass to Dante Stallworth with 14 seconds left in regulation. That completed a 12-play, 89-yard drive.

The Giants can maintain a one-game lead in the division with a victory over the Eagles Sunday night. The Cowboys and Giants have not played each other yet this season, but will meet twice in the season's final; four weeks. They will play Dec. 11 in Dallas and will conclude the regular season at MetLife Stadium January 1.
