Tony Romo connected with Dez Bryant on his up and out route, scoring on the 24-yard touchdown to break the tie.
Cowboys lead 17-10.
But it didn't take long.
On second and 12 on Pittsburgh's ensuing possession from their own 38-yard line, Ben Roethlisberger launched a deep pass to a wide open Mike Wallace, completing the 60-yard reception at Dallas' two-yard line. An illegal substitution penalty later, Jonathan Dwyer powers the football into the endzone to tie the game at 17.
