Rangers loss a teaching moment for Cowboys

10/28/2011

IRVING -- The Texas Rangers twice were one strike away from the franchise's first World Series title in Game 6 vs. St. Louis. But St. Louis third baseman David Freese hit a walk-off homer in the 11th for a 10-9 victory.

Watching the Rangers blow a lead was a teachable moment for the Cowboys, who have blown two games this season themselves in the fourth quarter.

"I think they're probably hundreds of them and they're all really good," Jason Garrett said. "If you watched that game, if you're a sports fan at all, wow. Both sides just continue to compete, resilient, mentally tough. Making the plays, big plays, little plays, fighting scratching, crawling, it was an amazing game. I don't know where it ranks in World Series games but for me, it ranks up there and if you just watch it and look at it and see how different guys handle different situations, it was all over that game there was no question about that."

The Cowboys blew two games this season thanks to turnovers from quarterback Tony Romo. Yet, have also won a game thanks to Romo.
