    The Dallas Cowboys ended up with eight representatives on the field in Miami for yesterday's Pro Bowl, a 41-34 AFC victory.

    Tony Romo orchestrated one NFC touchdown drive when he entered the game, but failed to complete the NFC comeback in the fourth quarter, surrendering a game-ending interception to Pittsburgh's James Harrison. Overall he went 13 for 18 for 154 yards and the interception; he was sacked twice.

    Romo's narrowly missed a touchdown pass on his second drive of the game when tight end Jason Witten was unable to hang on to the offering. Witten, who later expressed some regret over the play, finished with three catches and 49 yards.

    Miles Austin had six catches for 49 yards in his Pro Bowl debut, and a kick return for 15 yards. Also making his first career Pro Bowl appearance, Mike Jenkins had five tackles and a pass deflection.

    DeMarcus Ware fared the best, probably, of any of the Cowboys. The All-Decade linebacker posted three tackles, a strip-sack (recovered by the AFC), a stuff and an impressive special teams tackle of San Francisco's Josh Cribbs. Ware's partner in crime Jay Ratliff had two tackles and a pass deflection.

    Terence Newman made six tackles, a game-high. Guard Leonard Davis, obviously, had no stats to speak of, but fared well after starting the game for the NFC squad.
