LONDON - The Dallas Cowboys are a better team with Tony Romo on the field. They just dont know if hell be on the field Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.The Cowboys (6-3) have lost two straight after going on a six-game winning streak. Romo hurt his back for the third time in the last 18 months two weeks ago, and then watched as backup Brandon Weeden struggled to get the offence going in another loss last Sunday.Romo practiced Thursday for the first time since arriving in London, and said his back was sore but getting better.You got to kind of test it out and see what you can do. You got to push it, Romo said, sounding hopeful of playing against the Jaguars (1-8) on Sunday. At the same time, you got to understand your body and be smart with it.Romo is 69-47 in the regular season as Dallas starting quarterback. Weeden is 0-1.Dallas coach Jason Garrett said the team has been preparing as usual, even though the Cowboys dont quite know who will be taking the snaps at Wembley Stadium in the last of three regular-season NFL games in London this year.On the opposite side, Jacksonville is doing the same thing.Each week, we have to prepare for both quarterbacks, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said. In our mindset, we anticipate seeing Tony, but well be ready for both.Some other things to consider for Cowboys-Jaguars:WHO WILL DECIDE: Romo needed to do some improving to show he is healthy enough to make the start. Thats something that the Cowboys medical team needs to decide before Garrett — or Romo, for that matter, — gets his say.Romos attitude is definitely leaning toward wanting to play.If you love the game, youll always try to get on the field, Romo said. Any time you miss a game, its just hard.JAGUARS IMPROVED D: Whether its Romo or Weeden, the Dallas coaches are preparing to go up against a solid Jaguars defensive line.Independent of what the quarterbacks health is, the Jacksonville pass rush is really good, Garrett said. They just do a good job of getting up the field and affecting the passing game.BORTLES LEARNING CURVE: The Jaguars have their own quarterback injury concern with rookie Blake Bortles nursing a sore left wrist. But Bortles, who leads the league with 13 interceptions, said his wrist was OK, its his game that needs to improve.Continue to learn from mistakes, Bortles said. There are a lot of things that can be beneficial, good or bad as long as you take from them the right way.RECORDS ABROAD: The Cowboys have played overseas nine times in their history, including twice in London. But this is the first time theyll be playing a regular-season game outside the United States.In their two previous visits to Britain for preseason American Bowl games, Dallas lost to the Detroit Lions 17-6 in 1993, and tied 13-13 with the Chicago Bears in 1986.Now comes the real thing, and at a time when they could really use a win to stay on track for the playoffs.The first nine games of the season weve done some really positive things. There are some things weve got to get better at, Garrett said. Youre always trying to build on the good stuff and clean up the bad stuff.Jacksonville is hosting a London game for the second year in a row and will do so over the next two seasons. That Jaguars lost to San Francisco 42-10 in 2013.UP AHEAD: The Cowboys get the obligatory bye after a London game, then finish with four NFC East games in their final six. One of those is a night game — at the Giants on Nov. 23. Then comes the annual Thanksgiving match they host, which will be against their top competition in the division, the Eagles.___Online:AP NFL website: Trebuie să fii logat sau înregistrat pentru a vedea acest link. and Trebuie să fii logat sau înregistrat pentru a vedea acest link.

Instead, every other contender stumbled, and the Colombian didnt have to hit another shot to win his first PGA Tour title since 2010. Villegas shot a 7-under 63 and finished at 17-under 263. He earned $954,000 and 500 FedEx Cup points in the final regular-season event. Villegas had four birdies and an eagle on the front nine, added a birdie on the par-5 15th and watched the rest of the tournament from the air-conditioned scorers tent with his caddie. "I was hoping for a playoff," Villegas said. "I thought I needed one more (stroke)." Turns out, he didnt. When the rest of the field struggled late, he wound up with his fourth PGA Tour title and first since the 2010 Honda Classic. He also became the second first-round leader to win the tournament since its 2008 move back to Sedgefield Country Club and first since Arjun Atwal in 2010. Bill Haas and Freddie Jacobson tied for second. Haas had a 64, and Jacobson shot 66. Jacobson needed a par on the final hole to force a playoff, but he rolled his 11-foot putt inches past the hole. Heath Slocum was two strokes back after his 67. Brandt Snedeker, Webb Simpson and third-round leader Nick Watney were at 14 under. Ottawas Brad Fritsch finished tied for eighth at 13 under. Villegas had to wait about 40 minutes after his round ended before his victory was secure. He closed his round with three straight pars, tapping in from about 2 feet on 18 and hoping it was good enough. It was -- once the crowd thinned itself out. "When the boys got closer to the last hole, you can get a little anxious," Villegas said. "You dont have a golf club in your hand. You cant really control it." Watney was at 17 under and appeared headed for his sixth PGA Tour victory before he ran into trouble on 14 and picked up his third bogey of the tournament and second of the day. He followed with three straight pars, leaving him needing a birdie on the final hole to tie Villegas. He had one on Saturday -- but coouldnt do it again.dddddddddddd He wound up with a double bogey after his tee shot bounced past a cart path and out of bounds. "I knew what was at stake, and I pushed it a little bit," Watley said. "Extremely disappointed. If you said at any point, you birdie (the) last hole, youre in a playoff, you would take it. ... That was really a bad shot at a really bad time." That came after Jacobson also couldnt catch Villegas. The Swedes second shot on 18 fell short of the green and his 70-foot birdie putt from the front edge rolled well past the hole before he was wide with his par putt. "It really sucks when you play solid all day and, you know, I really thought it was my day coming in," Jacobson said. "All I needed was a solid strike to get up there and good feed in and have a good chance of winning." Congestion atop the leaderboard was expected after 12 players entered their last trip around Sedgefield within three strokes of third-round leader Watney, who was at 14 under through three rounds. And Villegas wasnt one of them. He began five strokes back but made a quick trip up the leaderboard, with three birdies and an eagle among his first five holes to move to 15 under and put himself within striking distance. The other main subplot here this week was the last-gasp push for spots in the PGA Tours playoffs, which begin next week at The Barclays in New Jersey. Slocum, who arrived at No. 158 on the points list, was briefly at 17 under but slipped off the pace by closing with two bogeys that also helped keep him out of The Barclays field. He finished at No. 129. Martin Laird, who was at No. 136, was near the lead all weekend but his tie for 14th could only propel him to No. 127. Paul Casey, 125th at the start of the week, tied for 18th to put himself safely in the field. Sang-Moon Bae played his way into the playoffs with a tie for 14th that moved him to No. 120. Jhonattan Vegas was at No. 124 but kept himself securely in the field with his tie for eighth. "The goal was definitely to move on to next week," Vegas said. "Mission accomplished."
