By winning four of their last five games, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have clawed their way to a share of the lead in the NFC East.
Next challenge: staying there.
The Cowboys have a great chance to get comfy atop the division, but coach Jason Garrett knows it will take a better effort than his club gave Sunday in Washington.
With Miami coming to town Thursday, there's little time to look back - and a lot for this club to look forward to.
The big date looming is Dec. 11 at home against the co-leading Giants.
BEST OF MAXIM
99.4 for the season, 'nuff said.
How ‘Bout Dem Cowboys!! Now to add frosting on the cake, the Giants lost to the Eagles. Winnin ugly is better than losing pretty. Any questions just ask the Giants. I have already seen the boards lighting up how poorly the Cowboys played. Outside of all that hippie talk about how a win is a win, this gave Dallas a divisional advantage.

Have The Cowboys Taken The Redskins Seriously?It seems like the second game against Washington means something big every year. Last season, Jason Garrett was trying to prove he was the man for the Head Coaching job. In 2009, it was Dallas’ ticket to the playoffs. In 2008, it was Tony Romo’s return to the field after a four-week hiatus in which a win was necessary for the Cowboys...
LANDOVER, Md. -- Tony Romo went this way and that way, scrambling to find Laurent Robinson for the tying touchdown and Jason Witten for the go-ahead score -- both in the fourth quarter. When that wasn't enough, the Dallas quarterback used his feet again in overtime, buying enough time to spot Dez Bryant on a third-and-15.
After taking a seven-point lead with a 59-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Jason Witten in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s matchup with Washington, Dallas appeared to have firm control of the game. But, just as they had in the first half, the Dallas defense couldn’t hold off a late surge by the Redskins’ offense--and, with just 14 seconds remaining in regulation, Washington...
Tony Romo almost had a Chris Webber moment that could have cost the Cowboys in overtime against the Redskins Sunday. With the game tied at 24, the Cowboys quarterback called for a timeout prior to kicker Dan Bailey’s 39-yard field goal attempt. Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan also called for timeout at the same time. [...]
The Cowboys and Dolphins playing on Thanksgiving will forever conjure memories of the 1993 game. Dallas defensive lineman Leon Lett adding to his blunderful reputation by sliding across ice and snow to bring alive a dead ball, setting up Miami for the winning kick as time ran out.
With Lett now part of the Cowboys' coaching staff, and Snickers pushing a lighthearted ''...
Well, well, well. And here we were just a few weeks ago, ready to drive Tony Romo out of town and force Rob Ryan to braid his hair. After winning three in a row, your Dallas Cowboys are now, with tiebreakers factored in, in first place in the NFC East.
Not only that, their aggregate point differential (+44) is the best in the division, proving their lead isn't a fluke! And you...
Mysteries around the Cowboys' practice facility usually concern trying to decode an opponent's tendencies. This week there's something more serious going on regarding the health of fullback Tony Fiammetta.
Head coach Jason Garrett gave cryptic answers when asked about Fiammetta's status this week. Some of them were purposely evasive, but others seemed to indicate...
