EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – A bruised right hand isn’t the only obstacle Tony Romo will face tonight as he attempts to guide the Cowboys to a division-title clinching win over the Giants. It’s been raining off and on here at MetLife Stadium, where temperatures are in the 40s. Romo didn’t wear a glove or a wrap on his injured hand while warming up about two hours before kickoff. His injured hand didn’t appear to be affecting his throws. Romo reportedly won’t hold for kicker Dan Bailey. That job reportedly will fall to rookie Chris Jones, who will punt for the Cowboys after they placed Mat McBriar on season-ending injured reserve Saturday. Romo bruised his hand when he hit the helmet of an Eagles defender early in last week’s 20-7 loss.

Cowboys didn't deserve playoff bid

The Cowboys' season ended Sunday night after a 31-14 loss to the New York Giants. Here are my thoughts on Dallas' eighth and final loss of the season. 1.)
