LB Rolando McClain anchors Cowboys to last second win

Tim Heitman - USA TODAY Sports

It was not easy, but the Dallas Cowboys pulled out a last second win over Washington at FedEx Field Monday night.

Place kicker Dan Bailey nailed a 54-yard field with nine seconds left in the fourth quarter, handing Dallas a 19-16 victory. Cowboys’ linebacker Rolando McClain finished third on the team in tackles (10), with five coming unassisted.

It was his second double-digit tackling performance of the season (Carolina, 12 tackles), since returning from a four-game suspension. McClain captained a front line that limited Washington to 2.8 yards per carry rushing and 73 total rushing yards on 23 attempts. He now stands at 52 total tackles.

The Cowboys (4-8) will travel to Lambeau Field next week to face Green Bay.
