SHOTLIST:ESPN -- Courtesy for duration of SOTSCincinnati - Dec. 91. SOUNDBITE: Jason Garrett/Cowboys Coach:I told our team that this is uncharted territory. We had a tragedy occur to our football team in the last couple of days. We lost Jerry Brown, our practice roster player for us, who we picked up earlier in the year. It's been really emotional for everybody. As the head coach, I have to talk to the team, give them the news and try to offer some perspective. I talked a lot about the value of a teammate, I've been fortunate, I've been on a lot of teams in my life. That word teammate is very special. Jerry is one of our teammates.2. SOUNDBITE: Tony Romo / Cowboys Quarterback:The last 24 hours has been something I have never experienced. A lot of guys will tell you that. It's been a roller coaster of emotions. Anytime....loss is hard, in life in general.3. SOUNDBITE: Jerry Jones / Cowboys Owner:Jerry was...in the short time he was here...was loved by his teammates. They were close, especially that area of our team. The defensive linemen. It's been a situation of grieving....from that standpoint. From that standpoint....certainly understand...today's game was a respite if you will to take their minds off something more important...that's the gone life of Jerry Brown."STORYLINE: Numb. Grieving. Distracted. The Cowboys were all those things on Sunday, dealing with the death of one teammate and the tribulations of another. Winners, too, though they hardly felt like it. Dan Bailey kicked a 40-yard field goal as time ran out, sending the Cowboys to a 20-19 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals that ended a tough afternoon with a little bit of relief and their playoff chances enhanced. The Cowboys overcame a nine-point deficit in the closing minutes behind Romo, who held his hand over his heart during a moment of silence to honor teammate Jerry Brown before the kickoff. T The linebacker died in an auto accident early Saturday. Owner Jerry Jones described his team as grieving when it took the field. The Cowboys salvaged the game by scoring on their last two drives against the Bengals (7-6), who had won four in a row and had a chance to move into position for an AFC wild-card berth with a victory. Josh Brent is charged with intoxication manslaughter in the accident that killed Brown. He was released from jail in the Dallas suburb of Irving after posting $500,000 bond Sunday, a day after police say he was drunk and speeding when the vehicle he was driving clipped a curb and flipped.(****END****)
