The New England Patriots handed the Dallas Cowboys their first lost of the season, beating the Cowboys 48-27 on Sunday. The Patriots remain undefeated. The Cowboys were trailing 14-0 going into the second quarter until kicker Nick Folk completed a 38-yard field goal to put Dallas on the board. Tony Romo’s touchdown pass to Terrell Owens gave the Cowboys the lead at halftime, but they could not maintain it. Tom Brady had a career-high five touchdown passes on Sunday and the Patriots put up more points than they have in a game in the past 23 years.
