Dallas Cowboys

Tony Romo had back surgery and will miss Dallas' third straight season finale with the NFC East title and a playoff berth on the line.

Coach Jason Garrett said Romo underwent surgery Friday after consultation with doctors during the week following his injury during a loss to Washington. Kyle Orton will start for the Cowboys in the winner-take-all game against Philadelphia on Sunday night.

Tony Romo threw for 225 yards and a touchdown, as the Cowboys topped the Raiders 31-24 on Thanksgiving Day.

Despite playing with a virus, Romo helped the Cowboys improved to 7-5, two games above .500 for the first time since late last season.

Romo went 23 of 38, throwing for 234 yards as the Cowboys topped the Giants 24-21 in the Meadowlands.

Romo threw two touchdown passes and led a 14-play drive that set up Dan Bailey's 35-yard field goal on the final play as the Cowboys won 24-21 Sunday, ending the Giants' four-game winning streak and denying them a place in NFL history.

Romo had one of his worst statistical performances in the Cowboys' 49-17 drubbing in New Orleans on Saturday night.

Romo completed just 10 of 24 passes (41.7 percent) for 128 yards and was sacked three times. One perhaps redeeming play was a 21-yard touchdown toss to Terrance Williams in the last minute of the third quarter.

Romo threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Romo has thrown five TDs and one INT in the last two games.

Romo now has the most yards passing in the first 100 starts of any quarterback in the Super Bowl era - ahead of Kurt Warner, Dan Marino and Peyton Manning.

The Dallas quarterback takes that impressive stat into Sunday's game against Detroit, which beat the Cowboys two years ago with a huge rally fueled by the downside of Romo's resume - critical turnovers.

Chalk up another 300-yard effort for Romo in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Eagles.

Romo threw for 317 yards and one touchdown as he completed 28 of 47 passes although his two INTs hurt his passer rating, which finished at 69.2.

Romo showed his greatest strengths as well as his greatest weakness in an epic 51-48 loss to Denver on Sunday. He completed 25 for 36 passes for a team record 506 yards and five scores.

Romo, however, will be remembered for his last pass - his lone interception of this amazing contest. He was baited into a diving interception by Danny Trevathan with under 2 minutes left and Peyton Manning did the rest to lead the Broncos to a winning field goal. Romo can be rightfully considered one of the greatest fantasy quarterbacks ever to wear a uniform, but NFL fans know that it's incorrect to write that sentence if the word 'fantasy' is omitted.

Romo completed 17 of 24 passes for 210 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-7 victory over the Rams on Sunday.

Romo has thrown for six touchdowns and just one interceptions in the first three games. He has a quarterback rating of 103.9.

Murray had a big game with 175 yards rushing and a touchdown in a 31-7 win over the Rams on Sunday.

Murray averaged 6.7 yards per carry en route to his best performance since a career-best 253 yards on Oct. 23, 2011 - also against the Rams.
