Somehow, Cowboys blow their third double-digit lead of 2011

The Cowboys have made a habit of blowing leads this year.

And not little leads.

Two- and three-touchdown leads.

"I think at different times we've done a really good job handling the fourth-quarter situations, and other times we haven't," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.

The Cowboys gave up a 24-10 lead against the New York Jets to start the fourth quarter and went on to lose in overtime, 27-24.

They were up 27-3 against the Detroit Lions in the second half and wound up with a 34-30 loss.

Sunday night, they had a 34-22 lead against the New York Giants with 5:41 to go. But that became a 37-34 loss.

"We shot ourselves in the foot with penalties and stuff like that," Cowboys linebacker Victor Butler said. "You don’t want to help them, and we helped them."

According to NBC last night, the Cowboys lost two games in the first fifty years of the franchise when they were leading by 12 or more points in the forth quarter.

This year they've done it THREE times!
