NFC Eastern Division Champions Dallas Cowboys
Detroit Lions 27
From the Associated Press:
Witten caught a 16-yard, go-ahead touchdown pass with 18 seconds left, lifting the Dallas Cowboys to a 28-27 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
RB Marion Barber recorded his first career 3-TD game. The Cowboys are 8-0 when Barber has two rushing TDs.
With the win, Dallas (12-1) clinched the NFC East and moved a step closer to earning home-field advantage in the conference playoffs.
The tight end had career highs with 15 receptions and 138 yards, and was able to enjoy his accomplishments because he redeemed himself after fumbling inside the Detroit 1 midway through the fourth quarter.
Detroit (6-7) has lost five straight and won’t be able to live up to quarterback Jon Kitna’s expectations of a 10-win season.
Romo was 35-of-44 for 302 yards and two TDs, helping the Cowboys win 12 of their first 13 games for the first time in franchise history.
The best part was going to the grocery store afterwards. The guys working in the meat department thought Detroit won. Foolish Packer fans.
