Found December 24, 2011 on Football Nation:
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 feels to sweep the Cowboys, the season ended for the “Dream Team” today.  Turning Point:  With 3:30 left in the first quarter, it was official.  The Giants had defeated the Jets, which meant that Philadelphia was eliminated from playoff-contention.  It also meant that next week’s Giants’ game versus Dallas will be for the NFC East title, and today’s game went from a Christmas Eve treat of a divisional-rival clash between two fierce rivals, to a glorified scrimmage.  Key Players:  Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys:  Although he only played one series, Tony Romo is the story of the game.  Romo hit his throwing hand on Ja...

Jerry Jones: Romo will be ready for Giants

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.

Jones Should Stay Off the Sideline

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...
