Before and after every snap, the Cowboys’ Tony Romo felt the throbbing in his back, the result of an accidental blow while making a first-quarter tackle.
Romo scrambled for a first down, then completed seven straight passes, the last a 10-yarder to Patrick Crayton for a touchdown with 2:41 left that gave Dallas a 7-6 victory over the Washington Redskins.
After Marion Barber’s fumble, Washington’s DeAngelo Hall recovered and Romo brought him down. As Hall was falling, his knee conked Romo in the back. Romo was so bad after that it was obvious something was bothering him.
