Week 9 NFL Scores And Results: Dallas Cowboys Top Seattle Seahawks, Move To 4-4

The Dallas Cowboys moved ahead of the Washington Redskins in the NFC East with a 23-13 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

The Dallas Cowboys were able to stop a two-game losing streak on Sunday, topping the Seattle Seahawks, 23-13, in Dallas to move to 4-4 on the season. Tony Romo was impressive, throwing for two touchdowns, and DeMarco Murray had 186 yards from scrimmage in the win.

The Cowboys broke open a 6-6 tie in the third quarter with two touchdowns. First, Romo found Jason Witten open down the middle of the field for a 33-yard touchdown. Then, after a Seahawks interception, Romo found Laurent Robinson for a six-yard touchdown at the end of the quarter to essentially put the game away.

The Cowboys' win moves them ahead of the Redskins in the NFC East standings. The first-place New York Giants play the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon, while the Philadelphia Eagles face the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
