KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Miles Austin scored the winning touchdown in overtime on a 60-yard catch-and-run to cap a huge game in place of the injured Roy Williams, and the Dallas Cowboys escaped with a 26-20 victory Sunday over Kansas City.
Austin had 10 catches for 250 yards as the Cowboys survived numerous mistakes against the winless Chiefs.
Austin also had a tackle-breaking 59-yard touchdown catch to give the Cowboys (3-2) a 20-13 lead with 2:16 left in the fourth quarter. On both plays, he slipped the grasp of cornerback Maurice Leggett and then made safety Mike Brown miss.
The loss dropped the Chiefs (0-5) to 2-28 in their last 30 games, tying the expansion Tampa Bay of the 1970s for one of the worst 30-game droughts in NFL history.
