Tony Romo Rallies Cowboys to a 24-20 Win over Detroit

Tony Romo Rallies Cowboys to a 24-20 Win over Detroit Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- Tony Romo came through when it counted late in the fourth quarter and hit Terrance Williams with a eight-yard touchdown strike to rally the Cowboys back to a 24-20 win over the Lions in the wild card round on Sunday. Romo finished the game with 293 yards and two touchdown passes to Williams, the first was a 76-yard bomb in the second quarter. DeMarco Murray pulled Dallas within seven with a touchdown run in the third quarter, which set up the go-ahead pass to Williams with 2:32 left in the fourth quarter. Romo's winning drive came after officials reversed a pass interference penalty against the Cowboys, the Lions then punted the ball. The Cowboys defense did the rest and sacked Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who fumbled and Demarcus Lawrence recovered it to seal the deal for Detroit. The Green Bay Packers will host Dallas next weekend. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Lions Prepare for Cowboys in First Playoff Appearance Since 2012

Lions Prepare for Cowboys in First Playoff Appearance Since 2012 Leon Halip/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- The Detroit Lions are 7-11 all-time in the playoffs and will travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys on Sunday in the wild-card round. Detroit is making their first appearance in the playoffs since the 2011 season, which was the first playoff appearance for quarterback Matthew Stafford. "Obviously I've got a ton more experience," Stafford said.  "I've played in a lot more football games.  I'd like to think that I'm probably a little bit better at doing what it takes to win games and not just throw for a million yards and touchdowns." Stafford will also be making his return to Dallas where he grew up. "It's always fun to go back there and play," Stafford said of seeing his family members.  "It'll be fun." The last time the Lions won a playoff game was when running back Barry Sanders was patrolling the field against Dallas on Jan. 5, 1992. "I don't need much motivation, it's a playoff game," Stafford said of breaking their skid.  "Win or go home gives you enough motivation." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Lions Roll Past Giants on Monday Night

Lions Roll Past Giants on Monday Night Leon Halip/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Matthew Stafford connected with Calvin Johnson twice in the first quarter for touchdowns and never looked back in the Lions 35-14 win over the New York Giants on Monday night. Stafford passed for 346 yards with two touchdown passes to Johnson in the victory. "I don't work on my moves a lot during practice, but I know I have to be better with my feet this year so that we can keep plays alive," Stafford said. "On both of the touchdown passes to Calvin, the offensive line got me a lot of time, and he was able to uncover himself and find somewhere open." Johnson finished with seven receptions, 163 yards, and the two early touchdowns. Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who had a career high 27 interceptions last season, added two on opening night and was 18 of 33 for 163 yards with a touchdown. "No excuses. We played very poorly," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "We don't have a lot to be proud of here. Couldn't move the ball, couldn't stop them, turned the ball over, got into that business again. Got a punt blocked, so you name it. It was a nightmare performance." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
