Cowboys huddle a cool place on final drive

The huddle in the Cowboys’ game-winning drive Thursday night was a calm place.

“Really calm,” tight end Martin Rucker said. “Everybody out there was really mature. We knew what we had to do. We knew what we needed. We just had to go out and do it.”

Stephen McGee led a 12-play that covered 65 yard, ending with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Harris with 15 seconds left. Rucker, who caught a 26-yard pass on fourth down to keep the drive alive, caught a 2-point conversion pass for the winning points.

Harris’ touchdown catch was also on fourth down.

“McGee was calm,” Harris said. “He was, ‘Go out there and make a play. The ball, if I throw it to you, make a catch.’ We were in two-minute mode. If we don’t make a play, we lose.”
