Dallas Cowboys And The NFL:
ARLINGTON – Stephen McGee summed up his performance Saturday night against the Eagles in three words: “Up and down.”
The Texas A&M alum came off the bench in the first quarter after Tony Romo suffered a bruised right hand that sidelined him the rest of the game.
The Cowboys (8-7) lost 20-7, but they can win the NFC East title with a win Jan. 1 at the New York Giants (8-7).
X-rays on Romo’s hand were negative, but swelling could be a problem. If he can’t go, the Cowboys will again turn to McGee, who was 24 of 38 for 182 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions against the Eagles.
“At times, we moved the ball all right,” McGee said. “We had our chances, but it felt like we shot ourselves in the foot today with penalties and just miscues on offense and miscommunication-type deals.
“So it definitely could have been a lot better today, but we’ll go back to the video and throw this one in the trash and be ready for New York.”
The Cowboys avoided their being shut out for the first...

AROUND THE WEB
ARLINGTON – With the New York Giants winning and Tony Romo injured, it’s shaping up to be a Blue Christmas for the Dallas Cowboys.
Romo hurt his right hand on the Cowboys’ opening possession. He’s being evaluated in the locker room. (UPDATE: X-rays on Romo’s right hand were negative, according to the Cowboys. But Stephen McGee remains at quarterback.)
The injury appears...
IRVING, Texas There seems to be no doubt Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will play with a bruised throwing hand in Sunday's winner-take-all game against the Giants.
The only question is how effective he will be.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the swelling in Romo's right hand had gone down Monday, but the proof will come when Romo returns to practice Wednesday.
In a very boring game, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys 20-7. With no playoff ramifications on the line, the Cowboys played it safe and looked to next week. Quarterback Tony Romo suffered a hand contusion on the first series of the game, and did not return. Michael Vick threw for two touchdowns and led Philadelphia to a bittersweet victory. As nice as it...
Quarterback Tony Romo returned to the sideline, but he has not yet returned to the game because of a right hand injury suffered on the Cowboys' first series against the Eagles on Saturday.
With everything on the line next week against the Giants, will Tony Romo be ready to go?
According to Jerry Jones, Tony Romo should be ready to go Sunday night when the Cowboys face the Giants with the NFC East title on the line.
The swelling is going down on Tony Romo's bruised throwing hand, and the Dallas Cowboys quarterback could be ready to practice Wednesday.
We should all be thankful to Jerry Jones for inserting himself into the middle of Saturday's loss to the Eagles.
If it wasn't for Jones' trip to the sideline for an animated discussion with Jason Garrett after Tony Romo's injury, the game wouldn't have produced a single compelling talking point. Thanks to the Giants' win in New Jersey, it was an anticlimactic...
Many things have changed in the sixteen years since the Dallas Cowboys last won a Super Bowl. In those sixteen years the franchise has seen five head coaching changes and an innumerable amount of player personnel changes. Specifically, the quarterback position, which has been occupied by five separate “franchise” quarterbacks. The defense has been overhauled multiple times. Some...
