Tony Romo throws 2 TDs, Cowboys top Eagles 38-23
PHILADELPHIA — Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes that kept Dallas even through three quarters. Then the Cowboys let their defense and special teams run wild in the end zone to win big and pump some life back into the NFC East race.
The Cowboys (4-5) and are second in the NFC East, 1½ games behind the New York Giants, who lost to Cincinnati earlier Sunday.
The win, and a break in the schedule, could propel the Cowboys back in the thick of the division race. They will play five of their next six games at home, starting Sunday against Cleveland.
“Don’t use words like desperate,” Romo said. “The importance was at its highest level. I don’t know if we are thinking anything more than we need another win.”
The latest game between these fierce rivals was more about salvaging a season than playing with something big on the line.
Rookie Nick Foles filled in for Vick and briefly rallied the Eagles until the Cowboys started showing some touchdown versatility.Romo hit Dez Bryant on a 30-yard pass on the final play of the third quarter, and Harris and Carr scored their TDs in the fourth quarter.
Foles hit the field in the second quarter and was greeted by a loud ovation from a crowd that had become fed up with Vick’s erratic play.
Vick was knocked on his back by linebacker Ernie Sims on an incomplete pass and was slow to get up. He headed for the locker room and Foles started warming up. Vick, however, may have been injured on the previous play when he was driven from behind headfirst into the ground by Jay Ratliff.
Vick did not talk to reporters but appeared groggy in the locker room.
It might be too late for the Eagles, no matter who the quarterback is, to save their season.
“I was hoping he’d make it through without having a concussion, but that’s where we sit right now with him,” Reid said.
