Romo has 2 TDs, leads late FG drive, Dallas 24-21
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Tony Romo threw two touchdowns and led a drive that set up Dan Bailey’ 35-yard field goal on the final play as the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Giants 24-21 Sunday.
Dallas ended the Giants’ four-game winning streak and most of their playoff hopes.
The victory moved the Cowboys (6-5) into a first-place tie with idle Philadelphia in the NFC East and left the Giants (4-7) wondering about what they gave away in two losses to Dallas.
Romo hit two crucial third-down passes on the 14-play drive that covered the final 4:45 after New York tied the game on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Louis Murphy Jr. and a 2-point conversion run by Andre Brown.
