Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys pulled off an impressive December comeback. Jason Garrett’s hot seat cooled down just a little bit, but it is still luke warm.
Romo recovered from a bad interception and rallied the Cowboys from a nine-point, fourth-quarter deficit Sunday, finding DeMarco Murray for a 10-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 1:08 remaining to give the Cowboys a 24-23 win over the Washington Redskins.
The victory ended a two-game Dallas skid as well as a five-game December losing streak and sets up a winner-take-all regular season finale for the NFC East title next week, when the Cowboys (8-7) host the Philadelphia Eagles.
Eagles will face the Chicago Bears tonight, and if they lose this game the Cowboys seat will get a little bit cooler.
