Tony Romo has had his way with the Bucs, who gave up 510 to Eli Manning last week

Tony Romo has owned the Bucs. He is 3-0, having completed 70.1 percent of his passes for 908 yards, with 11 touchdowns, no interceptions and a 144.8 passer rating.

"No specific reason. I think we just executed well," Romo said. "We just executed at the right time."

It appears Romo could be in for another big outing against them this week, too.

The Bucs gave up a franchise-record 604 yards against the Giants last week. Eli Manning passed for 510 yards, the second-most in Giants history, while dropping back 51 times. He was not sacked.

"I think this football team we’re going against is good," Romo said. "Defensively, they do a good job on tape. They’re physical. They’re well-coached bunch. I think that’s probably not the norm, when you look at what’s going to happen for them throughout the season. I think they’re going to continue to get better and better, being their first year in the scheme. I think that they’ll just find out what they’re going to get really good at. I think you can see on tape there’s a lot of good things they can do. So they can provide some trouble defensively for some teams."
