I've been on the Cowboys and the plus points pretty much ever since Tony Romo went down, and it's paid off. The Cowboys are still a talented and competitive team, they just don’t have a quarterback who can make an extra play or two to get them over the top. The Eagles don’t have a quarterback who can’t stop turning the ball over.
I think this is where the Cowboys finally win a game without Romo.
