IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Tony Romo flashed a thumbs-up as he walked off the field after a season-saving win in Washington, then put his right index finger in the air.
The Dallas quarterback wasn't trying to say the Cowboys were No. 1 - he knows better. He was saluting thousands of celebrating Cowboys fans - and telling them "one more."
Romo didn't look like someone who planned to let his latest battle with back pain keep him off the field for the Cowboys' third straight finale with the NFC East title on the line, this time against Philadelphia on Sunday night.
An MRI was scheduled for Monday after a back flare-up that looked like a leg injury when Romo limped around the possession before a drive that ended with a fourth-down pass to DeMarco Murray and gave Dallas a 24-23 win over the Redskins.
Romo, who had offseason back surgery but said the pain was coming from the opposite side of that procedure, has lost the past two finales against the New York Giants and Washington, and dropped a third against the Eagles in 2008. Those were all on the road - and came after losses the week before.
Romo's eighth elimination game - he has a 1-6 record in the previous seven - will be at home after an uplifting win that followed a crushing loss to Green Bay.
