Quarterback Tony Romo threw for three touchdowns, helping the Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-33 on Sunday Night Football.
The win helped Dallas even its season record at 6-6 and go to 3-3 in games at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Romo now has 166 career TD passes, one more than former quarterback Troy Aikman, who threw for 165 touchdowns between 1989 and 2000, and making him the leader in this category for the Cowboys.
Romo completed 22 of 27 passes for 303 yards, with three touchdowns.
"Well, I think it's about winning games," Romo said. "Troy (Aikman), obviously, being a guy if you're in any discussion with him in anything, you're doing something right. Obviously, that feels very rewarding."
Romo threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Dez Bryant in the 3rd quarter and tossed scoring passes of 27 yards and 6 yards to Miles Austin and Bryant, respectively, in the 4th quarter.
The Cowboys' defense came up big when cornerback Morris Claiborne returned a fumble by Eagles rookie running back Bryce Brown 50 yards for a score with 3:50 remaining, breaking the 24-24 tie.
Brown carried the ball 24 times for 169 yards and scored two touchdowns, following up on his 178-yard performance the previous week, an effort that broke the Eagles' rookie record.
The Eagles (3-9), who have now lost eight straight games, were led by rookie QB Nick Foles, who went 22 of 34 for 251 yards and one touchdown. EFE
