Cowboys win NFC East with 24-0 win over Eagles

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys had their way with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Their reward: the NFC East title and the challenge of trying to do it again.

Tony Romo threw a pair of early touchdown passes and the defense took over from there, sending Dallas to a 24-0 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday and setting up a rematch at their new palace next weekend.

The Cowboys (11-5) have quickly become a team nobody wants to face this postseason. This was their third straight impressive win and their most complete performance of the entire season.

The shutout also made for a major milestone in the club's storied history: First-ever back-to-back blankings. Only twice in the previous 49 seasons had they even had two shutouts the entire season.

Philadelphia (11-5) hadn't been swept by Dallas since 2005. The Eagles had two of their three lowest-scoring games against the Cowboys, with the common denominator being a lack of big plays.

Their longest in this game was 32 yards on a first-half drive that ended in a fumbled snap.
