11:14 pm
you want to get something going. but at the same time, you have to realize, you got to get the ball down to the 30 yard line. so you've got deep crossing routes. you have to do something to work it down the field and take a chance. >> no question. >> al: swing it underneath. 45. that should take us to the finish line. maybe one more spike, maybe not. and that will end the game. at least unofficially. we'll wait for boger's call. >> referee: this is the end of the game. >> al: thank you very much, jerome. >> cris: was there ever a doubt? >> al: makes it official. the dallas cowboys come from behind. win it by a score of 20-18ment tony thank you again. we'll see you in foxborough. coming up next local news, later tonight, "the tonight show" with
