Cowboys Back Atop NFC East



    Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys wound up having a great weekend. They are back in first place.

    Dallas (8-6) reclaimed a one-game lead in the NFC East over the Giants (7-7), who a week after winning at Cowboys Stadium lost at home Sunday against Washington. That came after the Cowboys built a 28-0 halftime lead and won 31-15 at Tampa Bay on Saturday night.

    Dez Bryant says the Cowboys can't let up now.

    Dallas clinches the division title by winning its last two regular season games, at home against Philadelphia and on the road against the Giants.

    While that is a clear-cut way to get to the playoffs, the Cowboys have already lost to both division foes, who combined for 71 points and 1,005 total yards against them.
