Jesse ReedCorrespondent INovember 18, 2012

The Cleveland Browns took the Dallas Cowboys to overtime in Week 11, but the 'Boys ultimately came out on top, winning by a score of 23-20. 

Tony Romo threw the ball 50 times in this game, totaling 313 yards. He only managed one touchdown, though, and he turned the ball over on a lost fumble. 

Felix Jones and the Cowboys offense struggled to gain many yards on the ground, but Jones ran one in for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to give his team a chance at getting into the game after being down by a score of 13-3 after three quarters. 

Dez Bryant had a monster game for the home team, hauling in 12 receptions for 154 yards and one touchdown. 

Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden was highly effective against the Cowboys' tough secondary, completing 20-of-35 passes for 210 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions, though he did lose a fumble. 

Rookie running back Trent Richardson was the most effective weapon the Browns had all day, rushing for 95 yards and catching six passes for 49 yards.

In the end, the Browns just couldn't execute with the game on the line in overtime—another bitter defeat.

The Cowboys improved to 5-5 on the season and will host the Washington Redskins in four days time on Thanksgiving, while the Browns fell to 2-8 and will host the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday.
