4-game win streak sends Cowboys to top of NFC East

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The last time the Dallas Cowboys felt this good, Tony Romo and friends went to Mexico to celebrate.

It's been a wild ride for the quarterback and the club since that pre-playoff siesta in Los Cabos two years ago, but look at them now: 6-2, winners of 4 straight and in first place in the NFC East.

Better still, the Cowboys are fresh off a 20-16 victory at Philadelphia that was satisfying in many ways.

Coach Wade Phillips said Monday the next challenge is making sure they can handle success. Dallas plays at 4-4 Green Bay on Sunday, then gets two teams with losing records at home.
