The Dallas Cowboys' season will be decided next Sunday, New Year's Day, in a winner-take-all battle for the NFC East title at the New York Giants.
The Cowboys will play it with injured quarterback Tony Romo and without any momentum after a 20-7 loss Saturday to the Philadelphia Eagles in a game that turned out to be as meaningless as a preseason tuneup.
Romo suffered a bruised right hand in the first quarter and did not return as the Cowboys decided to play it safe to gear up for next week's showdown against the Giants.
"I'll be fine," Romo said. "I think I just took a hit to the helmet. We're going to be all right, though. I'll be good to go next week."
Although the Giants played well against the Jets Saturday, Romo burned them earlier this season and will be a decent fantasy option next Sunday provided he's able to play.
