  • Tony Romo threw a touchdown pass on fourth down with 1:08 remaining in the game to lift the Cowboys to a win Sunday.

Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys pulled off their usual December swoon in the third quarter, leaving more than enough time for a comeback. Romo recovered from a bad interception and rallied the Cowboys from a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit Sunday, finding DeMarco Murray for a 10-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 1:08 remaining to give the Cowboys a 24-23 win over the Washington Redskins.

The victory ended a two-game Dallas skid -- as well as a five-game December losing streak -- and sets up a winner-take-all regular season finale for the NFC East title next week, when the Cowboys (7-6) host the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles lost at home to Dallas 17-3 on Oct. 20.
