AS I WROTE in yesterday's Daily News , I don't think this game is that much about Tony Romo or Kyle Orton. It's about the Eagles, and somewhat about Nick Foles. There are lots of way the Cowboys can win - they have a prolific offense, they're playing at home, and their motivation, after losing playoff berths in the final week of the season the past 2 years, has to be off the charts. Still, everything the Eagles have done this season comes down to this. If they lose, the Chip Kelly rebuilding project won't be scuttled, certainly, but the narrative Kelly and the Eagles have built in winning six of their last seven games just is not about losing in Dallas, with a chance to go to the playoffs hanging in the balance.

CAN TONY ROMO play this weekend with a herniated disk? Dennis Kelly could not. In fact, the 3-inch scar in the middle of his back represents a line drawn through his second NFL season. "I had no power in my right leg," Kelly recalled this week. "They just kept seeing me trying to plant it, and I'd fall down. " This was what happened early in training camp, as the Eagles' offensive lineman tried to deal with what originally was diagnosed as back pain from misaligned hips. An MRI showed a herniated disk, like the one Dallas' quarterback now reportedly is dealing with, and Kelly underwent surgery Aug. 5. He wasn't cleared to play again for about 6 weeks.

The Tim Tebow Era began in Denver on Tuesday when coach John Fox said he'll start the second-year quarterback against the Miami Dolphins when the Broncos return from their bye week. How long it will last is another question. Tebow supplanted Kyle Orton, who has struggled ever since winning the job with a spectacular training camp. "We haven't gotten it done as a football team," Fox said. "It's not all Kyle Orton's fault. But have to do something to win football games.

DENVER - Tim Tebow's 20-yard touchdown run with 58 seconds left capped a 95-yard drive and sent the Denver Broncos to a 17-13 victory over the stunned New York Jets on Thursday night. Tebow saw the blitz and outflanked safety Eric Smith around the left edge, then cut back and bulled his way past other Jets into the end zone. The Broncos (5-5) are 4-1 since Tebow replaced Kyle Orton. The Jets (5-5) lost their second heartbreaker in four days. Mark Sanchez's desperation pass toward the end zone was batted down as time expired.

The Broncos are 6-1 since Tim Tebow took over for Kyle Orton at quarterback. Four of those victories have come by either four or three points.   For the record San Francisco's Frank Gore passed Hall of Famer Joe Perry (7,344) for the most yards rushing in franchise history. Gore now has 7,395 yards. The 49ers are wearing No. 34 helmet decals this season in honor of Perry, the first player with back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. He died in April at age 84. Ben Roethlisberger set a Steelers record for completed passes with 2,026 in his career, one more than the old club record of Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw .   Weird stat Rookie Jeremy Kerley muffed a punt deep in his own territory for the Jets' NFL-high sixth special-teams turnover this season.

Doom and gloom Niffle Nation, don't you feel bad for Rex Grossman? No? Well, maybe it's more pity than sadness. The baby-faced QB took the Bears to the Super Bowl in 2007 but got smacked down last year and is a backup this season behind, hold the applause, Kyle Orton. So Grossman finally got a chance to play Sunday when Orton sprained an ankle. And he led the Bears to a come-from-behind win over the Lions and scored the go-ahead touchdown. So what's Grossman's reward?

DENVER - Tim Tebow has always done things the unorthodox way. Making the playoffs was no different. He fell short in his latest comeback bid, yet his Denver Broncos are still going to the playoffs. Kyle Orton got his revenge in leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a 7-3 win over Denver on Sunday, but it's the Broncos who clinched the AFC West and are headed to the postseason. After congratulating their former starting quarterback, the Broncos celebrated the end to their six-year playoff drought once San Diego beat Oakland, 38-26, later Sunday.

DeMeco Ryans was out for dinner on Monday night when he saw the news alert on television that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo might not play in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Ryans' initial reaction was shock. He thought Romo might have injured a knee last weekend, but did not expect a back injury that would sideline Romo for an extended period. "I was puzzled when I first heard the news," Ryans said. But, Ryans emphasized, it did not change what he thought of Sunday's game, which is a de facto NFC East championship.

It could be a while before Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh finds out just how much his Thanksgiving Day attempt to snap off Green Bay guard Evan Dietrich-Smith's wing will cost him. Suh was ejected after aiming his right cleat at the prone Packer lineman's right bicep in the Lions' 27-15 loss. An NFL spokesman said Friday that plays from Week 12 won't be reviewed until all games are completed. Suh apologized, sort of, but insisted he didn't intentionally stomp on anyone.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Seasons come down to games in the NFL, and games come down to plays, and plays come down to seconds, and sometimes slices of seconds. And there we all were at AT&T Stadium yesterday, slicing seconds deep into the night. Could the Eagles' season really come down to this? With 2 minutes left, the Eagles were punting the ball away to the Dallas Cowboys while only holding a two-point lead. It was not supposed to be this way. The Eagles were a touchdown favorite on the road against the Cowboys and their backup quarterback, Kyle Orton.

IRVING, Texas - It's Groundhog Day again in North Texas. For the third consecutive season, the Dallas Cowboys head into the regular-season finale facing the same scenario - win and claim the NFC East title; lose and go home with a disappointing 8-8 record. Sunday's matchup with the Eagles will decide the division, a disturbingly familiar situation for the Cowboys, who in 2011 lost to the Giants and last year fell to Washington to miss the playoffs. But all that, the Cowboys insist, is in the past.

SOMETHING LeSean McCoy said on Christmas Eve about this Eagles-Cowboys matchup on Sunday resonated, even beyond what the NFL's leading rusher might have intended. McCoy was asked about the Dallas defense, and he replied with the customary mild praise. Then he said: "I don't think it's really a matter of how well Dallas does on defense. It's more the [Eagles'] offense. The playmakers we have on this offense - DeSean Jackson, myself, Nick [Foles] and the other guys - if we just play smart, we play ball together, we should be fine.

IRVING, Texas - For much of the past eight seasons, the Dallas Cowboys' fortunes have risen and all too often fallen on the performance of Tony Romo. While the veteran quarterback has broken most of the storied franchise's passing records, his often spectacular failures at key moments have made him a polarizing figure among the team's fans. But when the Cowboys meet the Eagles in a winner-take-all showdown for the NFC East title Sunday night in Arlington, Texas, their faithful might not have Tony Romo to kick around anymore.

I AM THE KIND of guy who plays poker about once every 5 years and have to look online before the game to remind myself what beats what. I have no illusions about my own ability. But after watching that press conference late yesterday afternoon from the Dallas Cowboys' practice facility, I am sure of one thing: I want to play poker with Jason Garrett. ESPN had reported that quarterback Tony Romo was out for the season with a back injury, and Garrett was sent out to the microphones and given the task of putting the toothpaste back into the tube.

THE EAGLES' week took an unexpected turn around 4:30 p.m. yesterday, when ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that Tony Romo's season was over because of a back injury. (Dallas coach Jason Garrett later said no final decision has been made, but he confirmed his quarterback had an MRI, apparently for a herniated disk.) "I don't believe that. Are you for sure?" Eagles running back LeSean McCoy said to co-host Anthony Gargano, when Gargano told the NFL's leading rusher the news, early in McCoy's 94WIP radio show.

DENVER - The idea in venturing out to the Arctic-chilled Rockies for the Ravens-Broncos game this past weekend was to get a feel for Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy as an Eagles coaching candidate, even though little has been said about McCoy and the Birds since the traveling search party spoke with him a week ago Sunday. The idea could have worked out a lot better than it did. While the Eagles seem likely to hire an NFL assistant from somewhere to succeed Andy Reid, now that every college coach this side of Andy Talley has told them he would rather stay put, McCoy did nothing to further his candidacy in the Broncos' crushing, 38-35, double-overtime loss to the Ravens.
