IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Tony Romo was weighing the guilty pleasure of being a couch potato this weekend against the chance to make a quick road trip. Either way, he figured he couldn't lose.

After winning six of their first seven games, Romo and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys deserve a little midseason vacation during their bye weekend.

Besides, they're going to need the rest.

The Cowboys will jump into the rest of their season with a stretch that should show whether they're really as good as their NFC-best record indicates.

Their next three games are on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants, then home against the Washington Redskins.

Line newcomer Tank Johnson has one more game to serve of a league suspension before making his Dallas debut.
