ARLINGTON, TEXAS — Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys had their way with the Eagles on Sunday. Their reward was 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 and setting up a rematch at the Cowboys’ 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.
