ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Rookie Nick Folk booted four field goals Monday, including a 53-yarder with no time left, lifting undefeated Dallas to a 25-24 victory over Buffalo.

The Bills' defense intercepted Dallas quarterback Tony Romo five times and got a 103-yard kickoff return from Terrence McGee but couldn't hold off the 5-0 Cowboys.

Romo led a drive in the final 3:45, culminating in a four-yard TD pass to Patrick Crayton with 20 seconds left. A two-point conversion failed, but Nathan Jones recovered the ensuing onside kick. After one incomplete pass, Romo connected on two consecutive passes to set up Folk's game- winner.

Folk's first kick was nullified after Buffalo (1-4) called a timeout, but he split the uprights again for the win.

Romo finished 29-of-50 for 309 yards passing and two TDs.

Bills safety George Wilson returned a Romo interception 25 yards for one score, while defensive end Chris Kelsay knocked a Romo pass at the 2 before catching it in the end zone in the second quarter.

Rookie quarterback Trent Edwards, making his second career start in place of J.P. Losman, who is sidelined with a sprained knee, went 23 of 31 for 176 yards with an interception.
