Cowboys' Garrett stands by decisions

Upon further review, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett still sees nothing wrong with how he managed the end of regulation in a loss to Arizona.

On Monday, Garrett stuck by his decisions not to call a timeout after getting a first down with about 25 seconds left, and to call one just before his kicker was trying a 49-yard field goal.

The Cowboys had two timeouts left when Dez Bryant was stopped at the Arizona 31 and seemingly could have run several plays to get closer. Instead, Tony Romo spiked the ball to stop the clock and the field goal unit rushed out.

Garrett said it came down to trusting kicker Dan Bailey, even though the rookie already had missed from 53 yards and made a 50-yarder that hit an upright.
