ARLINGTON, Texas - Tony Romo has his first come-from-behind victory in the playoffs, a refreshing reprise for a career filled with season-ending disappointments. Phil Jackson Jersey .The Dallas quarterbacks late touchdown pass to Terrance Williams gave the Cowboys a 24-20 wild-card victory over Detroit on Sunday and sent them to Green Bay for their first post-season visit since the Packers won the Ice Bowl for the NFL championship 47 years ago.Anyone looking for a big exhale from the 34-year-old quarterback who avoided more heartache in Dallas first playoff game in five years, well, its not happening.There is no sense of relief, said Romo, who also had a 76-yard TD toss to Williams to start the rally from an early 14-0 deficit. Our aspirations werent winning the division, as great as that was. And its not just winning a playoff game, as great as that was.The Cowboys (13-4) will play their third divisional round game under Romo against the Packers on Sunday. He lost the first two, including at home to the New York Giants during the 2007 season when Dallas was the top seed in the NFC.I think people appreciate Tony as having the skills that he has, owner Jerry Jones said. I hope they see that hes made some pretty impressive plays and had big games. The only thing that will ever get them off his back totally would be to get that Super Bowl win.The Lions (11-6) went 99 yards for one of two first-quarter touchdowns, but Matthew Stafford couldnt get them in the end zone again.Detroit was driving with a 20-17 lead midway through the fourth quarter when referee Pete Morelli announced a pass interference penalty against Anthony Hitchens on a third-down pass to Brandon Pettigrew. But officials reversed the call without explanation, and Sam Martin followed with a 10-yard punt.Not a good enough one. Im going to leave it at that, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said of the explanation he got. Im not going to sit up here and act like that was the play that made a difference in the game.Things to consider after the Lions missed out on just their second playoff win of the Super Bowl era (The first was against Dallas during the 1991 season):THE EXPLANATION: Referee Pete Morelli said the back judge threw the flag on the pass interference penalty, but the head linesman had a better view and thought the call should be changed. The linesman said there wasnt enough contact and that Hitchens was face-guarding, which isnt a penalty in the NFL.I thought it was ridiculous, to be honest, Pettigrew said. He ran through me, pretty much, trying to get back to the ball. To me, it was obvious.CLINCHING THE WIN: After the reversal, Romo took the Cowboys 59 yards in 11 plays, including a 21-yard pass to Jason Witten on fourth-and-6. The winner was an 8-yarder to Williams in the back of the end zone after Romo had several seconds to throw behind an offensive line among the leagues best because Dallas has drafted linemen in the first round three of the past four years.The Cowboys had to wait a little longer to celebrate. Rookie DeMarcus Lawrence gave the Lions the ball back with a fumble following Anthony Spencers sack that knocked the ball loose from Stafford, who was 28 of 42 for 323 yards playing against his hometown team.Lawrence redeemed himself on the clincher eight plays later, sacking Stafford on fourth down near midfield in the final minute.EMOTIONAL SUH: Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh had consecutive sacks in the fourth quarter after his week started with news that he would be suspended for stepping on Green Bays Aaron Rodgers in the regular-season finale. He was reinstated a day later.He was so emotional after the loss that he left the podium in tears, only to return a minute later to finish talking about how the season suddenly ended.Im speechless. ... I didnt expect this outcome, Suh said.RESILIENT ROMO: The 34-year-old who had back surgery in December 2013 and missed one game with another back injury bounced back from a season-high six sacks to finish with 293 yards and a passer rating right in line with a franchise-best 113.2 that led the NFL in the regular season.Im thrilled for him, said Jones, who gave Romo the first $100 million contract in franchise history almost two years ago.TOUGH SLEDDING: NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray slogged his way to 75 yards on 19 carries against the NFLs best run defence, including a 1-yard plunge on fourth down that pulled Dallas to 20-14 late in the third quarter. His score was set up by the only big play from Dez Bryant. The NFL leader in receiving touchdowns (16) had a 43-yard catch to inside the 10, but had just 5 yards on two other grabs.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Frank Ntilikina Jersey . - Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis said Wednesday hes "nodded off" during meetings, but he said its something every player does. Joakim Noah Jersey . Philippe Desrosiers stopped 42 shots through overtime and three more in the shootout to pick up his third shutout of the season for Rimouski (31-15-7). Zachary Fucale made 28 saves for Halifax (34-17-3) in the loss. http://www.nbaknicksauthority.com/mark-jackson-knicks-jersey-c-15/ . Last year, Matt Kuchar closed with a 4-under 68 to beat Kevin Chappell by two strokes for his second win of the 2013 season and sixth of his career.CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Al Jefferson had a pretty good inkling it was Charlottes night when he banked in a 31-footer from well beyond the top of the key to beat the shot clock midway through the fourth quarter. "I didnt call the bank, but I trusted my right hand," Jefferson said with a laugh. Jefferson scored 34 points and the Bobcats stunned NBA-leading Indiana 109-87 Wednesday night, handing the Pacers just their second two-game skid of the season. Jefferson was 16 of 25 from the field and had eight rebounds for the Bobcats (28-33), who won their fifth straight at home to equal their combined win total from the previous two seasons. "Im not accepting that were a team that guys look at on the schedule anymore and say, OK, we have the Bobcats (so) we can take the night off." Jefferson said. Jefferson, whose 38-point, 19-rebound effort Monday night was overshadowed by LeBron James career-high 61-point outing, has scored at least 20 points in 21 of his last 24 games. "I think everybody needs to question the Eastern Conference voting on why Al Jefferson wasnt on the All-Star team because clearly he is one of the best in the game," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. "He showed it tonight. Give him credit." Charlotte was finishing a brutal four-game stretch, becoming the first team since the 2009-10 Knicks to play the NBAs top four teams in consecutive games. They previously lost to San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Miami on the road, but left no doubt about this this one. Charlotte jumped out to a 28-8 lead after the first quarter and never trailed. Kemba Walker added 19 points and nine assists for the Bobcats, who have the seventh-best record in the Eastern Conference. Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said he thought his team played well in the road losses to the Spurs, Thunder and Heat and that it carried over some confidence to Wednesday night. "We played a lot of good basketball and you get nothing for it," Clifford said. "To be honest, we took a day off (on Tuesday) and you could tell from our shootaround, not that we were going to win, but that we were going to play well." Evan Turner had 22 points for the Pacers (46-15), who lost back-to-back games for only the second time this season. Charlottes Michael Kidd-Gilchrist said he was "extra fired up" to deffend All-Star Paul George, two nights after James destroyed the Bobcats by knocking down 8 of 10 3-pointers. Anthony Mason Jersey. Kidd-Gilchrist did his job, holding George without a field goal. George was 0 for 9 and finished with just two points. Jefferson defended Kidd-Gilchrists effort against Miami, saying he did the job asked of him against James. "Against LeBron, the game plan was we didnt want him to get to the basket," Jefferson said. "We want LeBron to shoot jumpers. If he hits 8 of 10 3-pointers, we can live with that." George said he wasnt at the top of his game against Charlotte. "I was sore," George said. "I tried to play through it thinking it would loosen up. It was a tight night for me." The Pacers had won 14 of their last 15 against the Bobcats coming in, including five straight by an average of nearly 18 points. But Indiana was sluggish from the start, shooting 4 of 20 from the field in the opening quarter and turning the ball over six times, leading to 12 Charlotte points and a 20-point deficit. The Pacers, shooting at the home end of the floor where some of the lights were out, were held to eight points -- the fewest allowed in a quarter this season by the Bobcats. While the Pacers were struggling on offence, Jefferson was at it again on the offensive end. He hit his first six shots and had 20 points at the break. The Pacers would battle back to cut the lead to four in the second quarter, but the Bobcats never surrendered the lead and stretched the lead back to 18 again by the end of the third quarter. The Bobcats shot 51 per cent from the field against the NBAs top defensive team. The 22-point loss was the third-largest of the season for the Pacers. "Charlottes a good basketball team," Vogel said. "Theyre rested. We are coming in here in this situation in their house. We beat them pretty handily the first couple of times. So, we knew they were going to come out and we were going to have to play great and we didnt play great." NOTES: Chris Douglas-Roberts got the start in place of Gerald Henderson, who missed his second straight game with a strained calf. ... The only other time the Pacers lost back-to-back games this season came Dec. 16 and 18 against Detroit and Miami. ... The Bobcats are 14-3 at home when scoring at least 91 points.
