What is Tony Romo to Cowboys?
The word out of Dallas is finally official: Tony Romo is done for the season after having back surgery and will miss the Cowboys' regular-season finale against the Eagles that will decide the NFC East. It's a bitter pill for Cowboys fans to swallow, but the silver and blue lining is that Romo should be back in plenty of time for next year's training camp and a fresh start to the 2014 season. Will Romo ever drive the team to a Super Bowl? Should the Cowboys even continue with the veteran quarterback or should they chart a new course?
Tony Romo out for season
The reports proved true, and Tony Romo is out for the rest of the season after undergoing back surgery Friday morning. The Cowboys still host the Eagles on Sunday, with the NFC East title on the line. Does Dallas have any shot with Kyle Orton as the starting QB? How involved will DeMarco Murray need to be on Sunday?
Who wins NFC East? NFC North?
It's all down to the final Sunday for the NFC East and NFC North. But more than that, the losers of these two big games -- Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears -- will see their seasons end. As if that's not enough, major quarterback intrigue surrounds the matchups; the Cowboys are waiting to see if Tony Romo will be healthy enough to play while the Packers on Thursday announced Aaron Rodgers will return. How will it all play out?

Which team will win NFC East?
The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys entered Sunday as favorites over NFC North opponents. Both lost -- first the Eagles with a 48-30 thud at the Minnesota Vikings, then the Cowboys in collapsing fashion (they led 26-3 at halftime) to the Green Bay Packers. Not good. Still, someone must win this division. The Eagles (8-6) lead the Cowboys by a game, but the two teams play each other at Dallas in Week 17, with the Cowboys having won the first meeting. Which team will come away victorious?
