Sunday's games took fans in many cities on rollercoaster rides. The Dolphins/Texans, Cowboys/Cardinals, Rams/Redskins and Bears/Falcons, were among the games that were decided in the final moments.

This week was about redemption and about riding out some rough seas. Atlanta's kicker Jason Elam missed a field goal that could have put the Cardinals out in front only to get a second chance to lift his team to its fourth victory of the season as time expired. He drilled a 48-yard field goal to do just that and lifted the weight of letting his team down.

Josh Brown led the Rams to their first victory of the season when he booted a field goal with no time left. Final score: Rams 19, Redskins 17. In Houston, the Texans beat the surprising Dolphins with a three-yard touchdown run by quarterback Matt Schaub with just three seconds left. The score put Houston ahead 29-28 and handed the Dolphins a disheartening loss.

However, the most excitement came in the battle between the Cards and Cowboys. Trailing by 10 points with less than two minutes, the Cowboys broke out the big guns. First Marion Barber took a short pass from quarterback Tony Romo and ran it 70 yards to close the gap to just 3 points. Then the 'Boys got the ball back with about a minute to go and struggled to get anything going until the final seconds. Patrick Crayton caught a 30-yard pass that took the team down to the 39-yard line. Dallas rushed to the line and spiked the ball, catching an injured Cards player behind the line of scrimmage, resulting in a 5-yard penalty, moving the Cowboys closer. Nick Folk booted a 52-yard FG to tie the score.
