IRVING, Texas (AP) - As painful as a loss in Detroit was a week earlier, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys put their season in jeopardy when they fell behind one-win Minnesota in the fourth quarter at home.

Without Romo's winning drive in the final 2 minutes Sunday, Dallas would have a losing record nine games in, facing trips to New Orleans and the New York Giants on either side of their later-than-usual bye week.

Instead, the worst-case scenario is a tie for the NFC East lead if they lose to the Saints on Sunday night.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the win over Minnesota "was the antithesis, to some degree, of what we had last week."
