Romo throws late TD; Cowboys beat Redskins 24-23

Posted: Updated:
Landover, MD -

Tony Romo threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to DeMarco Murray on fourth down with 1:08 remaining Sunday, giving the Dallas Cowboys a 24-23 win over the Washington Redskins and setting up a winner-take-all regular season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles next week for the NFC East title.

After a one-point, meltdown loss to the Green Bay Packers the previous week, the Cowboys nearly pulled a repeat -- blowing a second-half lead after committing turnovers on back-to-back drives.

But Romo recovered and rallied the Cowboys from a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit. He hit Murray after a long scramble as Dallas snapped a two-game skid -- as well as a four-game losing streak in the month of December.

The Cowboys (8-7) host the Eagles next week for the division crown. The Redskins (3-12) have lost seven straight.
