Just as things were starting to look their bleakest and the Cowboys were going to walk away with their second shocking win over Saints in the last two season, second-year cornerback Malcolm Jenkins stripped Cowboys receiver Roy Williams as Williams was streaking toward the end zone on a breakaway reception.
Of course, if you judged Williams' immediate reaction on the sideline, he wasn't too broken up about it.
The Saints, a team that struggled on offense all throughout the second half, suddenly came to life. It took them only five plays to go 89 yards. The key play was a perfect 55-yard bomb to Robert Meachem along the right sideline. On the next play, Drew Brees hit Lance Moore for a go-ahead 12-yard touchdown.
The Cowboys got the ball back with a minute and 50 seconds left needing at field goal to tie, but the drive stalled not far into New Orleans' territory. The Cowboys were forced to settle for a 59-yard David Buehler field goal attempt, which had the distance but sailed just wide left.
