Defending the Star:
I don’t know what it is about the rivalry the Cowboys have with the Redskins. But for some reason the games are decided by some sort of wacky play on a regular basis. You don’t have to look back more than a few games to see what I mean. Last year the Cowboys appeared to win and then lost on the final play of the game when Alex Barron was called for a holding penalty that nullified the game winning score. This year Dan Bailey hit six field goals to provide all 18 of the Cowboys points as Tony Romo made a miraculous play on 3rd and 18 late in the game to get the Cowboys in position for the game winner. You can go back not only for a few years but for a few decades and you’ll see similar games that have been played between the two teams almost every season. So why would this game be any different? On paper it would appear that the Cowboys and Redskins are heading in opposite directions. The Cowboys are just starting to get on a roll and are beginning to look like a playoff...

Tony Romo's passer rating of 97.7 is higher than any of his previous seasons.
The best part of Tony Romo's last outing wasn't setting a Dallas Cowboys record by completing 88.5 percent of his passes.
It was the zeros in his stat line, as in 0 interceptions and 0 sacks - again.
Romo just pulled off back-to-back games without either of those drive-ruining plays. It's something no other quarterback has done this season and something he'd never...
Courtesy of Dallas Cowboys safety Abe Elam comes this alarming image which privies us to the squalor Tony Romo wallows in while sitting in front of his locker. Not to be outdone, Romo’s locker neighbor, cornerback Frank Walker, similarly doesn’t seem to keen on tidying up after himself, presumably leaving the lowly locker room attendants [...]
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Stephen McGee will be the No. 2 quarterback behind Tony Romo today after the Cowboys downgraded Jon Kitna from doubtful to out Saturday.
The 39-year-old Kitna, who has a back injury, did not travel with the team to Washington. McGee has been active for three of Dallas’ nine games this season but hasn’t taken any snaps. The Texas A&M product played in...
There's no denying Tony Romo has endured plenty of criticism during this roller-coaster season, but the Cowboys QB won't let it bother him one bit. All he wants to do is win.
Matthew Stafford, Christian Ponder and Tony Romo each should have opportunities to step up on Sunday. Will Carroll explains why in his Week 11 fantasy upgrades and downgrades.
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...
