Tony Romo was just being Tony Romo in the third quarter when he avoided three defenders on third-and-four and completed a 25-yard pass to Miles Austin. Three plays later, the Cowboys tied the game on a 30-yard touchdown pass from Romo to Dez Bryant.
"I don't rank them, bu that one's number one," Romo said, laughing, after being asked where he ranked the scramble. "That was a big point in the game. I think we were trailing at the time, and we obviously needed to score points on that drive. We kind of lost the momentum a little bit there. There's a time and a place to almost give yourself a chance to extend the play sometimes and that was an opportunity for it, I thought."
Jason Garrrett marveled at Romo's scramble.
"I think something that is so important is to be able to allow him to have that freedom to make those Romo-type plays, and that certainly was a great example of that," Garrett said. "He's got great vision. He's got great feel for people around him. He always keeps his eyes up. He seems to be able to make a lot of those plays at critical moments."
Romo was 19-of-26 for 209 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. His 122.1 passer rating extended his club record to 46 such games, two more than Troy Aikman.
