ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left, and the Dallas Cowboys beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-23 Sunday.
Romo's 7-yard pass to Harris answered an 11-yard touchdown by Adrian Peterson that had given Minnesota a 23-20 lead. The East Texas kid raised on the Cowboys had 140 yards rushing in his first game at their $1.2 billion stadium.
The Cowboys bounced back from a devastating loss at Detroit by avoiding what probably would have been a more damaging defeat.
Christian Ponder threw for a touchdown and ran for another score against his hometown team, but it wasn't enough to avoid a fourth straight loss for the Vikings.
Jason Witten had eight catches for 102 yards and a TD for Dallas.
It's the third game this season the Vikings have lost in the game's final minute.
