Dan Bailey gets field goal blocked on unspecial day for special teams

Dan Bailey has had only one field goal blocked in his two seasons. So it was an unusual sound he heard Friday when his kick bounced off Tyvon Branch's hands.

"I think we just had a lot of pressure from the right side," Bailey said. "The operation was good as far as our speed, and I thought I hit the ball good, got the ball up. I haven’t actually seen the pictures or the film yet. But it seemed like we had quite a big push on the right side, I don’t know, maybe between the guard and the tight end, somewhere over there."

It's safe to say the Cowboys will spend some time working on that this week, one of a handful of mistakes on special teams against the Raiders. 

"It looked like the guy came off of the tight end on our right hand side," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "We’ll watch it on the tape. Sometimes those guys will overextend and create a gap there, and that’s what it looked like to me."
