PITTSBURGH -- In the end, the Dallas Cowboys did not have to make a decision on their starting quarterback. Dak Prescott has made it for them.We are going to let the decision make itself, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said after the Cowboys beat the Pittsburgh Steelers?35-30 on Sunday. Dak has got a hot hand, and were going to go with it.At 8-1, the Cowboys have the best record in the NFL. Prescott has 14 touchdown passes and has been intercepted only twice. Against the Steelers, he completed 22 of 32 passes for 319 yards with two touchdown passes, and he led the Cowboys on a 75-yard drive that started with 42 seconds to play and ended with a 32-yard touchdown run by Ezekiel Elliott with nine seconds left.Its just going with the obvious, Jones said. You are going with how the team is doing right now. It must not be obvious because I get asked about it every time I open my mouth. Its not hard. Its not hard at all. Tony would make the same decision. Thats what you do.Jones said Tony Romo will be Prescotts backup next week against the Baltimore Ravens. Romo was inactive for the ninth straight game as he continues his return from a compression fracture in his back suffered Aug. 25.On Monday, coach Jason Garrett said the team will take it day to day with Romo, and that theyre certainly hopeful that Romo will be active.Romo went through three full practices last week for the first time since late in the 2014 season, splitting scout-team snaps with Mark Sanchez. Since becoming the starter in 2006, Romo has served as a backup in only one game -- in 2008, when he was replaced by Brad Johnson after he suffered a broken pinkie finger.Theres no fragileness because Tony is on board to ride this thing out as well, Jones said. Absolutely. Absolutely. Let me be real clear on that. There is no equivocation. He is totally committed to doing the very best thing to win the game.Jones actually took some solace in seeing what Ben Roethlisberger did to his defense, throwing for 408 yards with three touchdown passes, in case the Cowboys need to go to Romo, the franchise leader in passing yards and touchdowns, if Prescott struggles or is injured down the stretch.You see what a veteran quarterback can do. He gets in there and knows how to dissect and has all of that experience, Jones said. But you also see what Dak can do. That was a pretty nice little template to look at right there.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Once the Columbus Blue Jackets built some momentum, they rallied past the Washington Capitals for another home win.Nineteen-year-old rookie Zach Werensky tied the game late in the third and Cam Atkinson scored 37 seconds into overtime to give Columbus a 2-1 victory over Washington on Tuesday night for the Blue Jackets sixth straight win at home.Atkinson buried a wrister off a face-off from the right circle past Capitals goaltender Philipp Grubauer to win it.Werenski scored the tying goal with just under seven minutes remaining, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 26 shots.I think for us its just staying patient, Werenski said. Thats what we did tonight, capitalizing on our chances when we had them. It was huge.Nicklas Backstrom scored late in the second period for Washington, and Grubauer finished with 20 saves.I thought in the first two periods we played a real good road game against a team thats been quite hot in this building, Washington coach Barry Trotz said.The Blue Jackets started slow, struggling to penetrate Washingtons defense and getting off just 12 shots in the first two periods.We kept our patience when we were down, didnt open up, Columbus coach John Tortorella said. Its a really good win for our team to win a game that way.Backstrom scored his second goal of the season when he skated through traffic and shot from the right circle past Bobrovskys glove side with 4:17 left in the second.The Blue Jackets tied it with 6:58 left in the third when Werenski rocketed a wrist shot off the post and past Grubauer.Scoring opportunities were rare for both teams in the opening period, although Columbus missed some passes early on that coould have put them in productive situations.dddddddddddd Washington got off six shots in the period, and Columbus had just five as the Blue Jackets blocked seven Capitals shots.The Blue Jackets got some good looks and a couple promising shots on the back end of a power play at the beginning of the third period, but Grubauer held firm. Players said those on-target shots helped build momentum in the period, even if they didnt produce a goal.I think in the third period we had a lot of chances, four or five shots that could have gone in but their goalie made good saves, Werenski said. I think it really gave us a lift.Game notes A third-period goal by Backstrom was erased after video replay determined T.J. Oshie was offside bringing the puck down. ...
