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.
