Cowboys coach explains timeout in 19-13 loss

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett: We very well could have taken a timeout there. We felt like we were in field goal range. We have yard lines that we use as guidelines before the game. We felt like we were in range at that point. Tony [Romo] had them on the line of scrimmage quickly, so we went ahead and clocked it and used that as a timeout. You see so many situations where you have negative plays in those situations. We felt like we were in his range to give him a chance to kick the game-winner.”
