ARLINGTON, Texas - Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys dont have worry about a win-and-youre-in finale this year.Theyre in.Dallas ended a four-year playoff drought Sunday in a dominating 42-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, with Romo throwing four touchdown passes and breaking Troy Aikmans franchise record for yards passing.After three straight season-ending losses that left them at 8-8 and out of the post-season, the Cowboys (11-4) dont have to worry about winning at Washington next weekend. They are NFC East champions for the first time since 2009 a week early.I just dont have bad Christmases. Ive been too fortunate, owner Jerry Jones said. On the other hand, to have the promise of getting ready to compete in the playoffs, but with a team that can compete in the playoffs ... weve got a chance to do something.The Colts (10-5) didnt have much to play for with the AFC South title secured, and looked like it while they barely avoided their first shutout loss in 21 years. Falling behind 28-0 by midway through the second quarter, they lost a slim chance to earn a first-round bye.Yeah, it was a dismal start, said Andrew Luck, who threw for a season-low 109 yards with two interceptions and was pulled in the third quarter with the game out of hand. It was bad. A lot of bad. Not much good, if any.Coming off back surgery that kept him out of last years season-ending loss to the Eagles, and another back injury sustained against Washington in October, the 34-year-old Romo had his fifth game with a passer rating of at least 135. He completed 18 of 20 passes for 218 yards.I think the way hes played this year, the way great quarterbacks in this league have played for a long time, thats how Troy played, said coach Jason Garrett, who was Aikmans backup in Dallas. We ran the ball really, really well, controlled the line of scrimmage. And when Tony had opportunities today, and really throughout the year, he cashed in on them.Things to consider after the Cowboys emphatically ended a three-game home losing streak, scoring touchdowns on their first four possessions while eliminating division rival Philadelphia from the playoffs a day after the Eagles gave them an opening by losing to the Redskins:ANOTHER ROMO RECORD: In his eighth full season as the starter, Romo broke Aikmans record on a 25-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jason Witten, his teammate since they came into the league together 11 years ago.Nobody has caught more passes from Romo than Witten, who clinched his 11th straight 600-yard season.We literally were on the same bus from the airport when we arrived in Dallas for our first rookie minicamps, said Romo, who has 32,971 career yards, 29 more than the three-time Super Bowl winner. Hes obviously just got a special place in my heart.OH BY THE WAY: NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray had 22 carries for 58 yards and a 1-yard score six days after surgery for a broken left hand. He was injured in last weeks win at Philadelphia that put the Cowboys in position to win the division.It was hurting throughout the game, but I made my mind up a long time ago that I was going to play, said Murray, who needs 29 yards to break all-time NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smiths franchise record of 1,773 yards from 1995.PLAYING FOR POSITION: With a home playoff game already in hand, Indianapolis sat receiver T.Y. Hilton (groin injury) and right tackle Gosder Cherilus. The Colts had season lows in points and total yards (229) for the second straight week, and finished with just 1 yard rushing.The Cowboys could face a similar scenario next weekend. Its possible they could earn a first-round bye regardless of whether they beat the Redskins. Whatever happens, I will be fine either way, said Romo, who came out in the third quarter of a loss at Washington in the 2007 finale when Dallas had the NFCs No. 1 seed in hand.FLUBBED FAKE: Indianapolis had Dallas beaten on a fake punt after three straight running plays on its first possession. But a backpedaling Dewey McDonald, left uncovered on the outside, dropped punter Pat McAfees perfect throw.I took my eyes off of it for just a split second, said McDonald, whose flub came right in front of the Colts bench.DAZZLING DEZ: Dallas receiver Dez Bryant had his NFL-leading 14th touchdown for a 14-0 lead the first play after McDonalds flub on the fake punt. He caught a scoring pass in his 12th consecutive game against the AFC to extend the longest interconference streak since the 1970 merger.___AP NFL website: and Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at John Henson Jersey .com) - In the absence of Dwight Howard, Donatas Motiejunas had a career night to keep the Houston Rockets winning streak alive.
