The Dallas Cowboys final chance to make the playoffs is a win against divisional rival and current divisional leader the Philadelphia Eagles. Everyone held their breath waiting for Tony Romo to blow the Redskins game he did not but he did injure his back.
According to Adam Schefter the injury will require surgery and his season is over. So Romo won't be able to blow the week 17 game against the Eagles. The Cowboys will have to rely on their backup Kyle Orton.
Only one problem with all of this and that is that Jason Garrett is still claiming Romo could play. Either he's throwing a misdirection the Eagles way or he's not on the same page with the doctors.
