Romo Rolls On
The Tony Romo success story continues in Dallas.
Romo threw five touchdown passes in the Cowboys' lopsided triumph Thursday over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His 22-for-29, 306-yard throwing performance left him as the league's top-rated passer, ahead of Peyton Manning. The Cowboys are 4-1 since Coach Bill Parcells benched Drew Bledsoe to make Romo the club's starting quarterback, and the lone defeat was on a fluke ending against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field.
Romo has thrown 13 touchdown passes and five interceptions this season. In his five starts, it's 10 touchdown passes and two interceptions. His five touchdown passes Thursday tied the single-game team record and made him only the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw that many touchdown passes in a game in one of his first five starts. The last quarterback to accomplish the feat was Kurt Warner for the St. Louis Rams in 1999.
