Tony Romo guided Dallas Cowboys to a convincing 38-23 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Cowboys quarterback connected with Felix Jones and Dez Bryant for touchdowns, while Romo completed 19-of-26 passes for 209 yards.

Dwayne Harris also scored from a 78-yard punt return, while Brandon Carr returned an interception from 47 yards.

The win means that the Cowboys are now 4-5 for the season and second in the NFC East - just one game behind the New York Giants.

Philadelphia have now lost five on the bounce - and their cause was not helped by the loss of Michael Vick to a concussion in the second quarter.

Vick, who was caught by consecutive big hits, had connected with Riley Cooper for the opening score of the match.

Back-up Nick Foles attempted to inspire an Eagles fightback, hitting Jeremy Maclin for a 44-yard touchdown, while Stanley Havili rushed from a yard.

However Foles coughed up possession in his own end zone - following a double hit from Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware - for Jason Hatcher to score.
