Cowboys Edge Steelers 27-24 In OT, Shake Up Playoff Picture
Brandon Carr intercepted Ben Roethlisberger on the second play of overtime to set up Dan Bailey's 21-yard field goal that lifted the surging Dallas Cowboys to a thrilling 27-24 overtime triumph over the slumping Pittsburgh Steelers at Cowboys Stadium.
Carr's pick was the second critical turnover forced by Dallas in rallying from a 24-17 deficit with just over 10 minutes left in regulation. Tony Romo did his part as well in the Cowboys' third consecutive victory and fifth triumph in their last six tilts, throwing for a pair of touchdowns and amassing 341 passing yards while completing 30-of-42 throws while Dez Bryant, playing with a fractured left index finger sustained at Cincinnati last week, also aided the Cowboys' cause by catching a 24-yard touchdown pass from Romo in the third quarter while finishing with 59 yards on four grabs.
Roethlisberger put up 339 yards and two touchdowns on 24-of-40 passing, but his costly interception triggered Pittsburgh's second straight loss and fourth setback in five games. The Steelers (7-7) now trail fellow AFC North member Cincinnati by one game for the AFC's second Wild Card berth heading into next weekend's showdown between the teams in Pittsburgh.

the cowboys and redskins both control their own destiny. the giants are the ones that need a lot of help for the division crown.
having said that, the giants still control their own destiny for a wild card spot i believe.
