T. Romo said he'd play next week, despite his hand injury (AP).

By Josh Katzowitz

A potentially scary moment for the Cowboys and quarterback Tony Romo in their 20-7 loss to the Eagles shouldn’t keep Romo out of next week’s potential playoff clincher vs. the Giants.

That’s what Romo told reporters after the game today after it was discovered, via the Cowboys website, that Romo didn’t break any bones in his hand (but only broke blood vessels) when he hit his hand against the helmet of Eagles defensive end Jason Babin.

As he was walking to an elevator, Romo told ESPN Dallas that he’ll play in New York for the NFC East title, and he said that if the Giants had lost to the Jets, thereby making the Cowboys game meaningful, he would have tried his best to return Saturday.

"I would've tried very hard," Romo said. "No question. I did a little bit but the coaching staff decided against that."

first if all, the Giants recieving corps might not be 100% next week. Ballard and Manningham might not play. Let's not get too excited about the Giants shutting down the Jets....Cowboys Offensive weapons are way more explosive than the Jets. If things stick to form, Giants should followed up this peformance by not showing up next week as per Redskins game last Sunday.

Romo is a great competitor -- except when it's crunch time (or Jessica Simpson is in the stands). Giants fans are delighted to hear that he vows to play next week. Usually that means the Giants' secondary will actually be made to appear competent as those back-floaters and desperation heaves turn into picks.

Even his owner seems to have given up on him. Fantasy players can probably look forward to a new QB next year in Dallas. Giants 34-27 in a battle of weak pass defense. Giants win because their receiving corps will be almost 100% healthy for the first time all year.

That's great that you'll play next week, but you didn't do anything this week and I lost my fantasy league championship because of you.  I'm sure all those fans that paid good money to come watch their Cowboys play were very disappointed that they didn't even try to win today.  Big D must stand for Big D Bags!
