Rob Ryan, the defensive coordinator in charge of trying to make this work, did it again Sunday as the Cowboys beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime 27-24.
"I thought Rob did an outstanding job," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "He has done an outstanding job all year long. Injuries are a part of the game and 32 cities are dealing with injuries. That's just part of what we do. Rob has done a good job of putting the pieces together. A lot of new guys, guys who weren't on our team a few weeks ago, are now playing."
