Romo's late TD lets Cowboys squeak past Skins 7-6

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys were awful on offense for a second straight week. This time, they were lucky to be playing the broken-down Washington Redskins.

Romo led only a single scoring drive, hitting Patrick Crayton for a 10-yard touchdown pass with 2:41 left, and it was enough to give Dallas a 7-6 victory over Washington on Sunday to preserve first place in the NFC East.

The Cowboys (7-3) avoided getting shut out the previous week by scoring with 38 seconds left, then almost saw it happen again. This would've been especially stunning since the Redskins (3-7) were down to third-stringers at running back and right guard and came in without their expensive defensive tackle and a star tight end. They'd also never shut out Dallas in the previous 98 meetings.
