IRVING, Texas (AP) - For years, Tony Romo's defenders have answered his penchant for costly late-game mistakes with a rhetorical question:

What would the Dallas Cowboys do without him?

It appears they will find out in their fourth playoffs-or-bust season finale against an NFC East rival since 2008 - and their first elimination game without Romo in 10 years.

Dallas hasn't ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday night's game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romo's back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup.
