Romo throws late TD as Cowboys pull of big comeback

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.
