    SAN FRANCISCO -- Tony Romo felt sick to his stomach. It hurt to breathe, let alone bark out the cadence in a hostile road stadium.

    Romo hit Jesse Holley on a 77-yard completion on the Cowboys' first play of overtime that set up Dan Bailey's winning 19-yard field goal, and Dallas pulled off an improbable 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
