DeMarco Murray caught a 20-yard pass for a touchdown and Mike Tolbert plunged into the end zone for a 2-point conversion with less than 1 minute to give Jerry Rice a win over Deion Sanders in the first schoolyard-style Pro Bowl on Sunday.
Jerry Rice has fresh bragging rights on Deion Sanders nearly a decade after both players retired from the NFL.
Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has been fined $21,000 by the NFL for using the crown of his helmet to hit Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Damion Square on Sunday night.
Tony Romo's season is over, and the Dallas Cowboys will have to win without their star quarterback in a third straight playoffs-or-bust finale.
For years, Tony Romo's defenders have answered his penchant for costly late-game mistakes with a rhetorical question:
Kyle Orton and Jon Kitna sat at opposite ends of a couch in the Dallas Cowboys' locker room Wednesday, turned toward each other and started chatting.
Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan is not concerned about the Cowboys not listing Tony Romo on last week's injury report. But he made a joke about it anyway.
Dallas coach Jason Garrett said the team had "not made that determination at all at this point." Garrett wouldn't reveal the results of an MRI for the 33-year-old Romo, who had back surgery to remove a cyst in April and missed offseason workouts.
Tony Romo limped so badly on one play against Washington, he barely made it to the spot where he had to hand off.
Struggling Redskins' punt coverage unit gets off on the wrong foot against Dallas.
Not many players can overshadow a wild weekend of NFL playoff possibilities. Peyton Manning can. And did.
Washington has found innovative and entertaining ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory all season, yet it may have outdone itself on Sunday. The loss to the Cowboys marked the fifth time this season the Redskins have squandered a lead of at least a touchdown in the second half.
The Redskins held a 23-14 lead in the fourth quarter, but Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo brought his team back for the 24-23 win.
"I know he's much maligned in some of the things he's done in the past that probably cost them ballgames," said Redskins linebacker London Fletcher. "But today he made plays to win the ballgame."
"I was just playing like I always play," Murray said. "I'm not worried about anything else. I'm just doing the best I can do and trying to help this team win."
"He's a smart quarterback," Murray said.
