Dallas Over Carolina 19-14

Charlotte, NC (AP) -

Dan Bailey made a go-ahead 28-yard field goal with 3:25 remaining to help the Dallas Cowboys defeat the Carolina Panthers 19-14.
 
Trailing by one, Tony Romo led the Cowboys (3-3) into field goal range with a 10-play, 44-yard drive to send Dallas to its ninth consecutive regular-season victory over the Panthers (1-5).
 
Romo had 227 yards and a touchdown.
 
On a fourth-and-1 at their 39, the Panthers caught Dallas' defense changing personnel and Cam Newton quickly completed a pass for an apparent first down.
 
But officials ruled the Cowboys called timeout before the snap.
 
On the ensuing play, Morris Claiborne collided with receiver Louis Murphy before the ball arrived, but no flag was thrown.
 
Bailey added his fourth field goal of the game with 53 seconds left.

With their season hovering on the brink, the Dallas Cowboys turned to inspiration from former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs for this latest game.
 
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says coach Jason Garrett invited the team's former rival coach to speak to his players for the chapel service at the team hotel Saturday night before their game against the Carolina Panthers. The Cowboys won 19-14 on Sunday.
 
Gibbs lives in Charlotte and owns a stock car racing team, Joe Gibbs Racing.
 
Cowboys linebacker Dan Connor says Gibbs talked about "battling through adversity."
 
Jones says he and his players have immense respect for Gibbs, who won three Super Bowls as coach of the Redskins, and even consulted with him when he was looking to hire a coach to replace Barry Switzer.

    If you don't remember we just had an election last month, don't feel bad, voter turnout was abysmal.  However, that doesn't change the cost of holding the election, meaning when hardly anyone shows up to vote, the cost per voter who actually casts a ballot is high. In fact, here in Calcasieu Parish, it would be cheaper to send each voter to see a movie, than it is to let them in the voting booth. Lynn Jones loves elections!  And why not. He's been involved in the electoral ...

    Months of undercover work led Calcasieu's Combined Anti-Drug Team (CAT) to perform a drug raid on two homes in Lake Charles back in late October. Six were arrested and booked, but one of those suspects was able to get back on the streets that same day, leaving many upset, including city council member Luvertha August.
