ARLINGTON, Texas, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- Rookie kicker Dan Bailey's sixth field goal of the game came with 1:47 remaining Monday and boosted the Dallas Cowboys to an 18-16 victory over Washington.

Bailey's final boot came after Tony Romo led the Cowboys on a fourth-quarter drive highlighted by a key third-down pass to Dez Bryant.

The Dallas signal-caller, who overcame a fractured rib and a collapsed lung suffered in last week's victory over San Francisco, scrambled to his right to avoid the blitz on 3rd-and-21 and connected with Bryant in the middle of the field for a 30-yard gain.

It became a 45-yard play when a facemask penalty on cornerback DeAngelo Hall was added on.

Three plays later, Bailey, a rookie from Oklahoma State, then split the uprights with the game-winning, 40-yard boot for Dallas (2-1).

Romo finished 22-of-36 for 255 yards, no TDs and an interception.

Rex Grossman connected on 22-of-37 pass attempts for 250 yards, one touchdown and a pick-off for Washington (2-1).
