Kyle Orton, Miles Austin share blame for INT that ends Cowboys' season

Kyle Orton nearly played the part of unlikely hero after the Cowboys got the ball back with 1:49 remaining, needing only a field goal to win and trusty kicker Dan Bailey at the ready.

But Orton’s first pass, intended for Miles Austin, was intercepted by Brandon Boykin. It iced the game with 1:43 left.

“I just threw a bad pass,” Orton said. “Miles ran a great route, same play we scored on the play before, just went to Miles this time and just threw it behind him, and the guy made a nice catch on the ball.”

Austin, who may have played his final game for the Cowboys, shared the blame.

“I ran a post,” said Austin, who had two catches for 22 yards. “I tried to work my man. I don’t know if the MIKE [linebacker] was out. I don’t know if he didn’t want to bury the throw because someone was in there. It was a little bit… I should have broken it out, to be honest. I tried to break it out. I wish I could have broken it out. Just an unfortunate deal.”
