Tony Romo threw for 257 yards and a
touchdown and the Dallas Cowboys overcame the loss of star receiver
Terrell Owens to a left ankle injury in a 20-13 victory over the
Carolina Panthers. The win moves the 13-and-2 Cowboys a step closer
to clinching home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
But the Cowboys have to deal with another injury to a key
offensive player. Last week it was Romo, who bruised his right
thumb and was ineffective in a loss to Philadelphia. Now it's
Owens, who left in the second quarter after his left leg got caught
underneath him after a catch.
After the Panthers cut it to 20-13 on John Kasay's 25-yard field
goal with 3:01 left, the Cowboys put it away on Barber's 11-yard
run with 1:45 left. The Cowboys have won 10 straight regular-season
Barber rushed for 110 yards on 22 carries. The 13-and-2 Cowboys
matched their 1992 team for the most victories in franchise
history. Carolina falls to 6-and-9 and have officially eliminated from the playoffs.
