7 Field Goals!

Kicker helps Dallas win in OT on Monday Night Football

Billy Cundiff connected on a record-tying seven field goals to give the Cowboys new coach his first win with Dallas. Cundiff hit on a career-high 52-yard field goal to tie the game at the end of regulation. He then kicked the game-winner in overtime as the Cowboys downed the New York Giants, 35-32, on Monday Night Football.

Dallas head coach Bill Parcells earned his first victory with Dallas. Making the win even more special was that Parcells' win came against his former team.

Cundiff became just the fourth placekicker in NFL annals to convert seven field goals in a single game.

Photo: An exhibit that features modern era mementos pays tribute to those players who've kicked seven field goals in a game.  On display in front of Brett Favre's jersey are the kicking shoes of Jim Bakken and Chris Boniol.  A mold of Rich Karlis's foot (he was a bare-footed kicker) is in the middle.
