Romo spoils homecoming for Vikes' Peterson, Ponder

(Continued)

QB SITUATION: Ponder answered the quick Dallas touchdowns by going 4 for 4 for 74 yards on a drive that ended with a 31-yard touchdown to Kyle Rudolph, who bounced off Barry Church at the 6 and fought his way into the end zone. Ponder was 25 of 37 after being named starter on Friday, and with Josh Freeman inactive because of a concussion. He also led a pair of 11-play scoring drives in the first half, including his 6-yard scoring scramble. "As we speak, I don't see why we'd make a change, but sometimes after ballgames, we make emotional decisions," said Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, whose team is at home against Washington on Thursday night.

MORE DEZ DRAMA: The Cowboys were in position to extend a 20-17 lead when Bryant took his team out of field goal range with unsportsmanlike conduct for taking off his helmet and arguing with officials as a pass interference penalty against him was about to be announced. "I wasn't angry at the ref," said Bryant, who made headlines last week with a pair of sideline outbursts. "I know now not to take my helmet off."

NO NEED TO RUN: DeMarco Murray returned for Dallas after missing two games with a knee injury. He went 27 yards on his second carry but finished with just four carries for 31 yards and the Cowboys had a franchise-low nine attempts. "You'd certainly like to have more balance than that, obviously," Garrett said. "I do think with both of those situations at the end of the ballgame, sometimes it gets skewed."
