Dallas gets win and Romo sets mark
catch on the tiebreaking drive, which was capped by Foles’ 15-yard pass to Riley Cooper in the end zone.
Foles started his third straight game in place of Michael Vick, who was knocked out of a loss to Dallas on Nov. 11 with a concussion.
McCoy is out with a concussion too.
Philadelphia, which has lost seven straight games, was in front after the first quarter for the first time all season, but Dan Bailey got the Cowboys on the board with a 39-yard field goal early in the second. DeMarco Murray’s 1-yard touchdown run trimmed the Eagles’ lead to 14-10 with 41 seconds left in the half.
Romo overcame a holding penalty and an 8-yard loss when Kevin Ogletree fumbled a handoff on a reverse by completing third-down passes to Jason Witten, Bryant and Miles Austin. Romo then found Witten all alone in the middle of the field for 28 yards to the 1, setting up Murray’s score.
Murray started after missing six games with a sprained right foot.
The Eagles answered by driving 52 yards in 35 seconds to a 43-yard field goal by Alex Henery on the last play of the half. It was Henery’s 20th straight successful field goal, and he now has the longest current streak in the league after Cleveland’s Phil Dawson, a former Texas Longhorn, had a kick blocked Sunday.
The Cowboys welcomed Murray back by running him three straight times to start the game after calling 52 straight pass plays from the second quarter to the end of a Thanksgiving loss to Washington.
