Live Score

31-15 Cowboys FINAL

Dallas improves to 8-6 and sends Tampa Bay to its 8th straight loss.  Dallas dominated the first half and jumped out to a 28-0 halftime lead.  Tampa showed some life in the third quarter scoring twice to cut the lead to 31-15 but there were no scores in the 4th quarter so the game ended 31-15.

Tony Romo threw 3 touchdown passes and ran for a touchdown. Felix Jones had over 100 yards rushing and Sammy Morris was effective.

Tampa did not quit down 28, so I guess they get some credit for that but this Bucs team seems to be totally inept.  Raheem Morris may not have a job at the end of this season.

Dallas controls its playoff destiny and has two games left vs. Philadelphia and the Giants.

The Giants play the Redskins tomorrow and a Giants win will tie them with Dallas at 8-6.

That's all and thanks for reading.  Goodnight and again, Dallas beats Tampa 31-15.
