ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes to Laurent Robinson and Dan Bailey made a 28-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Dallas Cowboys a 20-19 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday.

Dallas (7-4) won its fourth straight and grabbed sole possession of first place in the NFC East, a half-game ahead of the Giants.

Miami (3-8) had won three straight. The Dolphins hadn't allowed a touchdown for 13 quarters before Robinson's first TD with 55 seconds left in the first half.

Matt Moore led Miami to scores on four straight possessions. He had three straight drives of at least 70 yards in the second half, putting the Dolphins up 19-17 with 7:14 left. He didn't score on his final drive, and that wound up being the difference.
