    Yes, it's true. The Cowboys have now won TWO games in a row. And once again it was T. Romo who came up big, taking what the defense gave. But, even he has to admit he got help from a couple of key players. #1, Felix Jones, who returned the opening kickoff 96yds for a 7-0 score. But TB would counter with an 81yd pass from Freeman to Jackson to tie it up.
    After a Dallas FG in the 2nd, CB M. Claiborne would step in front of a Freeman pass and return it 88yds for a pick 6 and a 17-7 lead. The rout was on...NOT!!!!
    Freeman would once again find jackson, this time for 78yds and then TB would add a FG to tie it in the 2nd. But, with under 1:00 to go, Romo would lead the offense downfield and find Murray for the go ahead score, 24-17 at the half.
    Murray would open the scoring in the 3rd with a 33yd run. While Freeman got his own RB involved, hitting M. Smith in the flat with a quick pass that caught the defense off guard. Smith sprinted the 57yds to paydirt to make it 31-24, Dallas.
    In the 4th, the teams would exchange volleys, with Romo finding Dez and Witten for scores and Freeman hitting Blount on a screen for a 36yd TD and then hitting A. Benn, despite double coverage, who then broke away for a 76yd pass to make it 45-38. Dallas would recover the on-side kick and drive down to the 1yd line before killing the clock.

    Reebok CrossFit Player of the Game: T. Romo, 364yds, 3 TDs, 1 INT and a 73% completion rate
