ARLINGTON, Texas — Tony Romo threw for three touchdowns to pass Troy Aikman for Dallas' franchise record, and the Cowboys beat the Eagles to hold onto their playoff hopes.
The Cowboys trailed 27-24 when Romo led an 86-yard drive. Bryant gave Dallas the lead when he took a screen pass from the 6 and got inside the pylon with 5:40 left. The Eagles lost their eighth straight despite 169 yards rushing and two TDs from rookie Bryce Brown.
Dallas went up by 11 when rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne returned a fumble by Brown 50 yards for a TD. Philadelphia's Damaris Johnson returned a punt 98 yards with 31 seconds left, but Dallas recovered the ensuing onside kick.
A 15-yard touchdown from rookie starter Nick Foles to former Clearwater Central Catholic and Florida standout Riley Cooper gave the Eagles a 24-17 lead in the third quarter.
