Dan Bailey has missed field goals in consecutive games for only the third time in his career.
Bailey hooked a 47-yard attempt on the opening drive, his second miss of the season. However, Bailey is dealing with a sore back and owner Jerry Jones said the team was concerned about it before the game.
Jones said Bailey may not have attempted a field goal of further distance later in the game. Bailey did convert on three extra points, and knocked in a 22-yarder in the fourth quarter.
“We were very concerned before the game. Not surprised at all that he missed the field goal,” Jones said. “Thought that was a pretty good time to check it out. Might not have wanted to try another one during the game – a long field goal. There’s no question that he had a limitation there.”
