Sunday’s matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys ended up as the fourth-highest scoring game in NFL history. The final score was 51-48 and the shootout ended on a last-second field goal which kept the Broncos undefeated. It was pretty crazy. Let’s take a look at how it all went down.
All in all, Romo finished with 506 yards and five touchdowns, breaking the Cowboys franchise record of 460 yards, while becoming just the fifth quarterback in NFL history to pass for at least 500 yards and five touchdowns in a single game. His counterpart, Manning, threw for 414 yards, accounted for five touchdowns, and moved past Dan Marino for second on the career passing list with 61,371 yards. It was an awesome game. And also exhausting. Moving forward, Denver remains undefeated, Dallas is 2-3 but probably still the favorite to win the NFC East, and the guy from Jerry Jones’ box in the blue shirt is probably staring at a ceiling somewhere thinking about what might have been.
