Tony Romo threw for 317 yards and one touchdown and the Dallas Cowboys overcame a sluggish start to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 17-3 on Sunday to take sole possession of first place in the NFC East.
Two teams that averaged a combined 58 points per game and allowed a combined 55 totaled 13 punts in a first half that ended with Dallas (4-3) leading 3-0. It was more two inept offenses than two dominant defenses.
The Eagles (3-4) have lost a franchise-worst nine straight games at home. Their last win at the Linc was over the New York Giants on Sept. 30, 2012.
A Cowboys defensive line missing three of its projected starters pressured and harassed Nick Foles before sending him to the sideline with a head injury on the last play of the third quarter.

During an appearance on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked to give a prediction on Sunday’s game against the Eagles if they end up down by four points with about two minutes to go in the game. “I’m expecting to win it. We’ve got a quarterback who’s the best in the business in the fourth quarter, he can make it happen when it’s not there...
Hard to believe that Tony Romo has started 100 games. It was seven years ago on a late October evening that the Cowboys fell behind 14-0 to the Carolina Panthers, only to see Romo bring the team from behind in a 35-14 win.
No quarterback in NFL history has completed as many passes or thrown for as many yards as Romo. The Fort Worth Star Telegram has more.
Here’s the list of the...
Okay, so if I were to ask you to make your pick of any quarterback in the NFL to be the guy under center in the 4th quarter of a crucial game that is close, who you going with? Peyton…Read more →
It's hard to say what rubs people the wrong way about Tony Romo. He hasn't created contract drama, he hasn't been a prima donna quarterback, he hasn't been aloof or unfriendly and he hasn't done anything illegal or had a fake girlfriend.
Yet, none of that has prevented Romo from landing in the top 10 least liked NFL players playing today.

It's no secret that Jerry Jones has deep and profound admiration for Tony Romo's skill as an NFL quarterback.
Lest we forget Jones' comments in the wake of Romo's star-crossed performance against the Denver Broncos earlier this month a game Jones called the best by a quarterback in Dallas Cowboys history.
So yes Jones is feeling pretty good about his $108 million...

Jerry Jones believes in Tony Romo. He wouldn’t have forked over a $108 million contract or $55 million in guarantees this offseason if he thought otherwise. Apparently he’s one of the few who believes in Romo’s ability in the clutch, too.
Romo hasn’t exactly earned the reputation as a late-game closer during his eight seasons as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback. His fourth...

Dez Bryant hopes to prove to everyone on Sunday that he’s just as good as Calvin Johnson when the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions meet at Ford Field. “Truth be told, I don’t compare myself to nobody,” Bryant said Monday during an appearance on 103.3 FM ESPN in Dallas. “I think Calvin’s the best at what he [does]. I think I’m the best at what I do.”
Washington Redskins linebacker Perry Riley was fined $15,750 by the NFL on Friday for a roughing-the-passer penalty during last Sunday night’s loss at Dallas. Riley was penalized during the game for his hit on Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. In other news no fines were given out to Cowboys safety Barry Church. Church was given two [...]
This is the week to watch. The Dallas Cowboys will face the Philidelphia Eagles this week at the Eagles’ home turf. The matchup this week will surely be interesting as both teams are missing huge offensive weapons this time around. Michael Vick will be out against our ‘Boys this week and backup QB Nick Foles will take the reins. Likewise, DeMarco Murray is out this week and third...
Today’s battle between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles is more than a game to determine who will be leading the NFC East. It’s also a battle that could decide who carries an advantage into week 17. In a strange twist of fate, the Cowboys will host a week 17 game against the Eagles.
If we go back over the course of the past two seasons, we’ll notice the Cowboys...
With the Giants and Redskins both reeling with a combined 1-10 record, the dreadful NFC East appears to be a two-team race. The Eagles (3-3) and Cowboys (3-3) are apparently the class of this division, which is to say they are far less awful than the aforementioned teams.
Both teams have the capacity to be explosive on offense, but each defense gives up a staggering amount of yards...
