Cowboys defense powers Dallas to MNF win over Chargers.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. After a game filled with fumbles and penalty flags, the Dallas Cowboys defense came up big in the final two minutes to seal a 20-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football.

With quarterback Justin Herbert playing through a fractured middle finger on his non-throwing hand, the Chargers fell to 2-3 on the season as the Cowboys went to 4-2.

After what happened last week against the San Francisco 49ers, the Cowboys needed any kind of win.

Monday's win certainly wasn't pretty, but the Cowboys enter their bye week with a 4-2 record and are still within striking distance of the Philadelphia Eagles and 49ers, who suffered surprising losses on Sunday.

A game-winning drive started with three key third-down conversions that ended with a Brandon Aubrey field goal, a sack -- the first of the game for the Cowboys -- by Micah Parsons and a sealing interception by Stephon Gilmore.

The Cowboys are now 10-1 after losing the last two seasons.Maybe they're not dead.
