LANDOVER, Md. - It wasn't just the victory, but the way the Cowboys defeated Washington yesterday that owner Jerry Jones believes will make Dallas an even more formidable opponent for the Eagles next week. With 3:39 remaining and their playoff hopes possibly on the line, quarterback Tony Romo marched the Cowboys on a nine-play, 87-yard scoring drive that lifted Dallas to a 24-23 comeback win over the Redskins at FedEx Field. Dallas next hosts the Eagles on Sunday, with the winner earning the NFC East title and a playoff bid. The loser will finish out of the postseason.

CINCINNATI - During a moment of silence before the game, the Cowboys bowed their heads, put their hands over their hearts, and honored a teammate killed in a car crash early Saturday. Then they staged their latest comeback: Dan Bailey's 40-yard field goal as time ran out gave Dallas a 20-19 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, a victory that provided a few seconds of relief from two days of grief. "There was a feeling of numbness on the field, but they focused and found a way to win today," coach Jason Garrett said.

ARLINGTON, Texas - It seemed pretty obvious that Ryan Mathews was on the ground when the ball came out, after Mathews picked up a first down on fourth-and-1, but ref Ed Hochuli's crew ruled a fumble anyway, with a Dallas recovery, on the first possession of overtime. This turned out to be a good thing for the Eagles. The review – which, of course, ended with a ruling of first-and-10 for the Birds at the Dallas 41 - offered a chunk of time that Chip Kelly used to call a crossing pattern for Jordan Matthews that had worked well earlier, in a similar situation, setting up the Eagles' first touchdown.

"This has been about as poor a performance as I can recall ever seeing in this league. " - Fox analyst Troy Aikman during the Eagles' 20-10 loss to Dallas on Sept. 20 LANE JOHNSON seemed as fired up Tuesday about the Eagles' Week 2 loss to the Cowboys as he was the day it happened, maybe because Johnson had just been forced to watch the film again. "It pisses me off, when you feel like you can dominate the guys up front, then you go out there and don't get it done," said Johnson, the Eagles' right tackle.

ARLINGTON, Texas -  Somebody else's eye-black streaked Chip Kelly's sweaty right cheek late last night, as he talked about how his team "didn't flinch," with AT&T Stadium roaring and the Eagles seeming to tilt toward giving away a game they had led the entire evening. "As soon as I saw [Miles Austin] go in I tried to bite on it," Brandon Boykin said after his team-high sixth interception of the season put the Birds in the playoffs, where they will host the New Orleans Saints on Saturday night in a wild-card game.

WITH A PLATE of food perhaps simmering to the side and a press box overflowing with pro scouts from a bevy of teams, the Flyers' brass put its first foot forward last night toward improving the team before the Feb. 27 trade deadline. Without giving up a key piece of their lineup, the Flyers bolstered their defensive corps by adding Dallas blue liner Nicklas Grossman in exchange for a second-round pick in 2012 and a third-rounder in 2013. Neither one of the picks is the Flyers', though both are shaping up to be better than their current selections in those rounds, based on standings.

LeBron James came to Miami last summer for the chance to be a champion. He arrived back there yesterday just hoping to be a survivor. The Dallas Mavericks have a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals and can win their first championship tomorrow night. Less than a year after the Heat's free agent victory celebration, the real party might belong to Dirk Nowitzki. But the Heat, despite consecutive losses that have renewed criticism of their execution and James' ability in the clutch, insist they can still win the first of the multiple titles James boasted of upon his arrival in South Florida.

ATLANTA - Michael Turner had a tiebreaking 3-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter; Matt Bryant kicked four field goals; and the Atlanta Falcons beat the Dallas Cowboys, 19-13, on Sunday night to extend their run as the NFL's only unbeaten team. Turner had 20 carries for 102 yards, and Penn Charter's Matt Ryan had 342 yards passing for the Falcons (8-0), who took their first lead with 14 minutes, 16 seconds left. Tony Romo completed 6 of 6 passes for 78 yards, including a 21-yard scoring pass to Kevin Ogletree, on the Cowboys' TD drive later in the fourth.

ARLINGTON, Texas - The New York Giants are still undefeated at Cowboys Stadium after another comeback victory under Eli Manning, the 20th time in his career he has rallied his team in the fourth quarter. Lawrence Tynes kicked two of his five field goals in the fourth quarter as the Giants won, 29-24, on Sunday after blowing a 23-point lead - and before the Cowboys thought they had a game-winning play with 10 seconds remaining. New York (6-2) led by 23-0 just two minutes into the second quarter when defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown.

LANDOVER, Md. - Seeing Dallas Cowboys rookie Dak Prescott rally his team to a fourth-quarter comeback win, one can envision the competitive quarterback matchups he will have with fellow rookie Carson Wentz of the Eagles over the next decade or so. While the Eagles have done somersaults over Wentz's progress and his opening performance in their win over the Cleveland Browns, Prescott has drawn similar raves in Dallas. A fourth-round draft choice and the 135th overall selection from Mississippi State, Prescott has been forced into duty because of Tony Romo's back injury.

Bob Ossler's brain was fried. His body, crisped. The unforgiving sun of a Louisiana summer had drained him. The police chaplain from Millville, Cumberland County, had prayed with hundreds of law enforcement officials since he arrived Sunday in Baton Rouge, where a gunman had killed three officers in an ambush. But the fatigue didn't stop Ossler. When a group of officers waved him over Wednesday — where they came from he does not know; "I see badges and I pray" — he put his hands on their shoulders and read from Psalm 23. Even the toughest officers began choking up, he said.

By Joseph J. DeFelice A "Weekend of Rage" against the police rocked Philadelphia following the unprecedented assassination of five police officers ambushed while protecting the lives of Black Lives Matter protesters in Dallas. During the Saturday night protest, which was captured in a 40-minute video by the Fishtown Spirit of the Riverwards newspaper, speakers jeered at police officers outside the 24/25th Police District in North Philadelphia. They celebrated the black shooter in Dallas who "wanted to kill white people, especially white officers," and called for more of the same: "This is the face of fear"; "That's what happened in Dallas . . . they did something"; "Philadelphia is Dallas"; and "Dallas is the point!"

The metamorphosis of the peaceful civil rights movement led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. into the fiery "black power" revolution promoted by Stokely Carmichael and Huey P. Newton didn't just happen. Violence grew out of frustration with this nation's inadequate attention to intolerable conditions that continued to plague African American communities. Given Thursday night's damnable assassination of five Dallas police officers in apparent retaliation for the fatal shootings of two black men by police in Baton Rouge., La., and St. Paul, Minn., one must hope this nation won't repeat history.

Witness is protest. You need only to video or livestream an event to inject it into mass consciousness, as if to say: This. This exists. And very often that act carries this implicit yet passionate message: And we have to change it. On Wednesday, Diamond Reynolds used Facebook Live to livestream from Falcon Heights, Minn. Her video showed her boyfriend, Philando Castile, dying of wounds after being shot by a police officer. With purpose and self-possession, she addresses her virtual audience: "We got pulled over for a busted taillight in the back and the police just.

When the Rev. Mark Tyler learned of the carnage in Dallas, a thought flowed through his grief: That could have been us. That a gunman just as easily could have fired at the officers who had protected him and the hundreds of protesters he led on a march Wednesday through Center City from the African Methodist Episcopal Church Conference at the Convention Center. A peaceful showing against the killings of black men by police. "That it could have been our officers," said Tyler, the pastor of the Mother Bethel A.M.E.

Timothy Sauers, 29, got out of the vehicle and allegedly pulled the replica handgun, the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office said Friday.

Amid heightened tensions after a fatal sniper attack on police in Dallas, Mayor Kenney on Friday called on all sides to "listen and to be willing to hear one another. " "I ask all Philadelphians not to react in hate, anger, or violence, but instead to grieve with the nation by listening to one another," Kenney said in a statement. But area police officers reacted with outrage to the news from Dallas that five officers had been fatally shot and seven others wounded as protesters marched in response to the killings of two black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota.

Editor's note: Thomas J. Gibbons Jr. is a retired Inquirer reporter whose late father was Philadelphia police commissioner from 1952 to 1960. He writes about surviving a shooting 46 years ago when he was a Philadelphia policeman. A street-level ambush. Occasionally I worried about that scenario, but I didn't dwell on it. As a 25-year-old Philadelphia Highway Patrol officer in the summer of 1970, I believed I was indestructible. And on the August night I was nearly shot to death, I learned I was wrong.

One of the story lines that emerged from the NBA draft was "How about those plucky Villanova Wildcats, winning a national title without any drafted players!" No, no, a million times, no. Yes, Jay Wright deserves every bit of credit he's gotten. Wright pushed all the right X and O buttons, continually outcoaching some very impressive coaches. Villanova also won it all because it had the most depth of talent. Some of that talent you saw surely will end up in the NBA. Seniors Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu weren't drafted - and weren't expected to be - but they picked up free-agent deals in an instant.
