Team Score Time Drive The plays
1st 3-0 Bucs 10:57 6 plays, 29 yards, 2:58 Matt Bryant 36-yard field goal. Key plays: The drive started in Cowboys territory thanks to a 20-yard punt return by Clifton Smith, who was promoted from the practice squad Saturday. Jeff Garcia connected on three passes to Antonio Bryant for a combined 25 yards, but Earnest Graham got stuffed on third and 1 from the 18, forcing BryantÕs field goal.
6-0 Bucs 1:09 9 plays, 34 yards 4:36 Matt Bryant 36-yard field goal. Key plays: An offsides penalty on end DeMarcus Ware (after the Bucs came up short on third and 4 at the Cowboys 46) kept the drive alive. And a 17-yard Jeff Garcia-to-Michael Clayton pass moved the Bucs to the Dallas 14. But an incompletion and a penalty on Garcia for throwing after crossing the line of scrimmage stalled the march, and Bryant was successful again.
2nd 6-3 Bucs 9:29 14 plays, 51 yards, 6:40 Nick Folk 38-yard field goal. Key plays: The Cowboys finally put together a decent drive, using a combination of short passes: 8 yards to Jason Witten, 8 to Roy Williams and 10 to Martellus Bennett on third and 9 at the Bucs 45. Three rushes by Marion Barber then got Dallas as close as the 20 before it was forced to kick the field goal.
10-6 Cowboys :01 10 plays, 59 yards, 2:22 Brad Johnson 2-yard pass to Roy Williams (Nick Folk kick). Key plays: The Bucs all but handed the Cowboys the touchdown, getting nailed for four penalties during the drive: a personal foul (horse collar tackle) on Ronde Barber, pass interference on Phillip Buchanon, illegal contact on Aqib Talib and personal foul (fighting) on Cato June. The only significant gain by Dallas was a 13-yard pass from Johnson to Patrick Crayton to the Bucs 4 immediately before JuneÕs penalty.
3rd 13-6 Cowboys 5:13 6 plays, 25 yards, 2:08 Nick Folk 45-yard field goal. Key plays: There wasnÕt much to this drive. Taking over at their 48 after winning the field position battle, Brad Johnson first hit Terrell Owens for a 12-yard gain then handed to Marion Barber for an 11-yard run through the middle of the defense. The Cowboys gained only 2 yards on the next three plays, however, and Folk hit his second field goal of the game.
13-9 Cowboys :34 10 plays, 56 yards, 4:39 Matt Bryant 41-yard field goal. Key plays: The drive was sustained by an 11-yard pass from Jeff Garcia to Earnest Graham on third and 5. But the points came courtesy of a 34-yard reception by tight end Alex Smith, who ran a crossing pattern underneath the secondary and found running room down the left sideline to the Dallas 21.
