Romo threw two touchdown passes to Terrance Williams, the second for the lead late in the fourth quarter, and the Cowboys rallied for a 24-20 wild-card win over Detroit on Sunday in their first playoff game in five years.

Romo had 293 yards passing and a quarterback rating almost right on his franchise-best 113.2 that led the NFL.

Romo finished the regular season Sunday with the league's sixth-best passer rating of all time (113.2).

Romo played nearly all of a 44-17 rout of Washington, completing 22 of 34 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns and one interception. For the month, he completed 75 percent with 12 touchdowns and one interception. Aaron Rodgers was second in the league at 112.2.

Dallas ended a four-year playoff drought Sunday in a dominating 42-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, with Romo throwing four touchdown passes and breaking Troy Aikman's franchise record for yards passing.

Romo, who completed 18 of 20 passes for 218 yards, has thrown 18 TDs and just two picks over his last seven games. His 32 TD passes are four shy of his career high set in 2007.

Romo has surpassed Troy Aikman as the career leader in yards passing for the Dallas Cowboys. Romo set the record on his fourth touchdown pass Sunday against the Colts, a 25-yarder to tight end Jason Witten. The TD put him at 32,961 yards, 19 more than the three-time Super Bowl winner.

The 34-year-old Romo is already the franchise leader in touchdown passes. He was up to 240 after the toss to Witten, 75 more than Aikman. Aikman is still the franchise leader in attempts and completions, but is likely to be replaced in those categories, too.

Romo threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns - all of which went to Dez Bryant - in Sunday night's win at Philadelphia.

Romo has 13 TD passes in the last five games. However, he's gone over 300 yards just once - throwing for 324 against Houston in Week 5.

Romo, who has been bothered by a bad back, kept checking down and completed 21 of 26 passes for 205 yards and three TDs on Thursday.

Dallas is 6-0 on the road, and Romo has thrown 15 TD passes and one INT while posting a 125.0 passer rating in those games.

Romo went 18 of 29 for 199 yards and two interceptions in Thursday's loss to Philadelphia.

Bad Romo finally showed up, and it was just in time to make fantasy owners nervous as they plan for the playoffs. He'd thrown 21 TDs and just three INTs in his previous nine games with a rating of 118.7.

Romo was 18 of 26 for 275 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's win over the New York Giants.

Injury concerns have done nothing to slow him down. Romo's 142.4 rating over his last two games is the best in football. He's gone three straight without throwing in interception.

Romo will play the New York Giants on Sunday night, then figure out if his surgically repaired back can hold up for the quick Thanksgiving turnaround.

Trying to decide this week what plan will work for next week is premature - the same label he gave to a question about how good a year he's having while leading the Cowboys (7-3) in his eighth full season as the starter.

Romo played well in his return, completing 20 of 27 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns. He did not throw an interception and was sacked only once in the win over the Jaguars.

Romo missed a 28-17 home loss to Arizona due to a back injury.
