EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Tony Romo laughed as he popped out from behind a black curtain in the Cowboys' locker room late Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. "Eight-and-a-half seconds," he called across the locker room in disbelief. "Someone timed it. " The amount of time the Cowboys quarterback had to find Dez Bryant in the back of the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown in a 31-28 victory over the Giants was actually about a second shorter. But it must have felt like an eternity behind the Cowboys' talented line.

THE DINNER that launched a thousand tweets was not part of any sort of hazing, Lane Johnson said yesterday. In fact, the $17,747.86 tab he posted over the weekend for a "rookie dinner" at Del Frisco's was split among himself and fellow Eagles offensive linemen Todd Herremans and Evan Mathis, Johnson said. "I probably should have [given] it some clarity," Johnson concluded after the Eagles finished their organized team activity session on a steamy Monday afternoon. There are several themes one could pursue here, including conspicuous consumption/income disparity, with a group of football players racking up a dinner tab that equals at least several months' salary for some of their fans.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Philadelphia had seen this before. The new most important player on the team, in the first playoff game of his career, was nearly perfect. Roy Halladay's no-hitter against the Reds in the 2010 NL Division Series was first-time, big-game virtuosity at its height. Now, they have seen it again. Last night was, essentially, a playoff game for the Eagles. They needed a win at Dallas to make the playoffs. Dallas needed the same. It was the last game of the NFL regular season.

After his team lost eight of 10 following a 3-1 start, Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak is embattled (sports jargon, meaning "about to be tossed out on his keister"), but he's serene about it. "It's part of this profession," he said of the daily questions he gets about his job security, then went into his best coach-speak. "I can only control what we do this Sunday. . . . After that, what happens as far as that goes, some of that's out of my control to some degree. " Translation: Munchak, who has one year left on his contract, may see an opportunity on the horizon.

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.

WITH THE EAGLES off this week, Sunday's Cowboys at Giants inter-division game will likely draw a lot of Birds' fans. According to Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, it'll be a blood bath. "We're going to put it on them, man," Pierre-Paul said. "I'm pretty sure the offense is going to get going. The defense is going to get going even more. And the special teams will contribute to it. It's going to be a fight. It's going to be a dogfight. There's going to be a lot of blood spilled out there.

As you might have heard, Sunday was a big day for the NFL's pass-catching corps, even those not nicknamed after Transformers. Expect some new nicknames to be coined for these guys: Cincinnati's Marvin Jones, who had 18 catches all last season, hauled in eight catches for 122 yards and scored four touchdowns in a 49-9 rout of the Jets. Bengals teammate A.J. Green turned his three catches into 115 yards. Green Bay is down to one healthy wideout, so the Packers are lucky that it's Jordy Nelson, who had seven catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns in a 44-31 win over Minnesota.
