Cowboys QB Tony Romo makes history in Week 16 rout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Tony Romo completed 16 straight throws, tossed four touchdowns and became the Cowboys' all-time leading passer in the Week 16 blowout of the Colts. Romo finished 18 of 20 for 218 yards and posted his second four-touchdown game of the year.

On a 25-yard score to tight end Jason Witten in the third quarter, Romo passed Troy Aikman (32,942 passing yards) as the franchise's all-time leader. Romo is up to 32,971 passing yards in 37 fewer games.

Romo earlier hit Terrance Williams, Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley for touchdowns, marking his seventh game this season with at least three scores. Romo added 28 yards on three carries.

His streak of 16 straight completions fell just shy of the career-high 17 in a row he hit in December 2012. Up to 32 touchdowns against 11 turnovers, Romo visits the Redskins in the regular-season finale.


G Zack Martin among Cowboys cleared to play

(12/21/2014) Cowboys starting right guard Zack Martin (ankle) is active for the game against the Colts after being listed as questionable. Also suiting up for Dallas are quarterback Tony Romo (back), safety Jeff Heath (thumb), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee), cornerback Tyler Patmon (knee, ankle) and defensive end George Selvie (thumb).

Cowboys unveil lengthy injury report for Colts game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) The Cowboys have listed 11 players on its final injury report for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. Defensive tackle Josh Brent (calf, personal) and outside linebacker Dekoda Watson (hamstring) were ruled out for the game. Tackle Doug Free (ankle) is doubtful, and guard Zack Martin (ankle) and running back DeMarco Murray (hand) are questionable.

Meanwhile, the following players were labeled probable: Strong safety Jeff Heath (thumb), middle linebacker Rolando McClain (knee), defensive back Tyler Patmon (knee, ankle), quarterback Tony Romo (back), defensive end George Selvie (thumb) and quarterback Brandon Weeden (personal).


Tony Romo, Dez Bryant have a good thing going


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2014) After beginning the season in more of a game-manager role, doing his part to make DeMarco Murray the best rusher in the game, the Cowboys' Tony Romo has gotten back to being an elite Fantasy quarterback in recent weeks. Week 15 at Philadelphia was his fourth game in five with at least three touchdown passes. He's the seventh-best passer in standard CBSSports.com leagues during that stretch -- and that's including his Week 11 bye.

The most interesting part about the turnaround is that he hasn't thrown the ball more during it. In fact, just the opposite: He has averaged 27.8 pass attempts in his last five games compared to 30.3 in his previous eight. The key has been putting the ball in his best playmaker's hands.

Dez Bryant was at his lowest of lows in the two games prior to this five-game stretch. He scored a touchdown in each, but on a combined 45 yards. Romo found him six times for 158 yards and two touchdowns the following week and has gone on to average 102.6 yards with seven touchdowns in his last five games. That's compared to 70.6 with six in his first nine.

Now that the two are in sync, it's led to some magical numbers on both ends, and neither of the Cowboys' matchups to close out the season figures to end it. In Week 16 against Indianapolis, they'll probably have to throw more just to keep pace with the Colts' scoring.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo throws three TDs vs. Eagles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo completed 22 of his 31 passes for 265 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 38-27 win over the Eagles in Week 15.

The Cowboys shot out to a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter but fell behind in the third. They managed to battle back and retake the lead before the end of the third quarter and hung on in the final 15 minutes for a huge divisional win. Romo managed to rack up three touchdowns and no interceptions for a second straight game after struggling in a Week 13 loss to the Eagles, with all three of Sunday's touchdowns going to Dez Bryant. The quarterback has managed 3,188 yards and a 28:8 TD:INT ratio heading into a Week 16 showdown with the Colts.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo active vs. Eagles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) is active for Sunday night's game against the Eagles. Romo was listed as probable to play on the final Week 15 injury report as has become custom and will be under center in the key divisional matchup.

Tony Romo (back) among Cowboys probables for Week 15


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) The Cowboys enter Week 15 relatively healthy with seven of nine players on its final injury report deemed probable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia. Those players include safety Jeff Heath (thumb), defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence (chest), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee), defensive end Jeremy Mincey (personal), defensive back Tyler Patmon (knee, ankle), quarterback Tony Romo (back) and defensive end George Selvie (thumb).

Linebacker Dekoda Watson (hamstring) was ruled out and defensive tackle Josh Brent (calf) was deemed as doubtful.


Report: Cowboys QB Tony Romo has torn cartilege, no break


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is suffering from torn rib cartilege, not a fractured rib, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Romo said after Thursday's win over the Bears that he has been dealing with a rib fracture but apparently misspoke. The injury isn't considered serious, but the NFL has opened an inquiry as to why the rib issue wasn't disclosed by the team. The league also looked into the Cowboys late last season after owner Jerry Jones revealed a previously undisclosed back injury for Romo but cleared the Cowboys of any wrongdoing.

Romo reportedly had an X-ray after suffering a rib injury in Week 6 but no fracture was revealed. He is expected to be available for Week 15's matchup with the Eagles.


Report: NFL investigating Cowboys' injury report


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) After reports surfaced that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was dealing with an undisclosed rib injury, the NFL has opened an investigation into why the injury was not disclosed, according to NBCsports.com.

Sources have indicated to the NFL Network Romo injured his rib Week 6 at Seattle, but an X-ray at the time did not reveal a fracture. It is believed the fracture occurred during the wear and tear of the NFL season.

Since the injury was not listed on the injury report, the NFL is trying to determine if the Cowboys violated league rules regarding how they disclose injury reports.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo suffered broken rib near start of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo revealed to reporters following a 41-28 win over Chicago he has been playing with a broken rib for approximately two months, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Romo indicated he suffered the injury either Week 3 against the Rams or Week 4 against the Saints.

It's not the first time he's played with a broken rib. In 2011, he suffered a broken rib and punctured lung and kept playing through the pain. Romo, who had offseason back surgery, is wearing a longer plate to protect his back along with extra protection for his ribs. He passed for 205 yards and three touchdowns against Chicago.

"I took a [pain-killing] shot this week," Romo said. "I didn't last week in the Eagles game, and that was a poor decision I think."

With the win on Thursday, the Cowboys will have 10 days to prepare for their matchup against the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles in Week 15.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo throws three TDs in win vs. Bears


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo completed 21 of his 26 passes for just 205 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 41-28 win over the Bears in Week 14.

Romo almost had a fourth touchdown in the efficient effort, with receiver Cole Beasley barely being kept out of the end zone on a reception in the second quarter before running back DeMarco Murray picked up a one-yard rushing score. Romo would hit Beasley on two touchdowns later in the game before finding tight end Gavin Escobar in the back of the end zone for his third score.

Romo's performance was a return to form after throwing no touchdowns and two picks in a Thanksgiving loss to the Eagles. Aside from that Week 13 dud, Romo has managed 10 touchdowns and no interceptions since the beginning of November. He'll look for a better result against the Eagles when the Cowboys head to Philadelphia in Week 15.


Tony Romo among active Cowboys probables in Week 14


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) is active for Thursday night's Week 14 matchup with the Bears.

Romo was fully expected to suit up and play after being listed as probable on the team's final Week 14 injury report Tuesday. The Cowboys' other probables are also active Thursday, including wide receiver Terrance Williams (finger), defensive ends George Selvie (thumb) and Tyrone Crawford (knee), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (shoulder), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee) and offensive tackles Tyron Smith (illness) and Doug Free (foot).

Coach is '100 percent confident' Tony Romo will bounce back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Cowboys play-caller Scott Linehan told the Dallas Morning News he's "100 percent confident" that quarterback Tony Romo will bounce back from his Thanksgiving performance. In the loss to the Eagles, Romo posted a 53.7 passer rating, his lowest since 2011.

"Quarterbacks aren’t going to have A-games every week," Linehan said. "You’re going to have a couple games that aren’t as good as others. I love his experience and the fact that he’s been through that. He’s had a really good season for us and we as an offense, we as a team, didn’t have one of our better days last week.

"It has nothing to do with anything other than we’ve all got to do our part better and step up better. Tony is a great, experienced veteran leader for us. We know he’s going to come ready to play the next game after a game like that."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) practiced fully Monday in advance of Thursday's visit to Chicago. Romo is coming off a season-worst performance on Thanksgiving, when he threw for 199 yards and no touchdowns with two interceptions against the Eagles.

Tony Romo's TD streak ends in disastrous performance


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo saw his streak of 38 straight games with a touchdown pass come to an end Thursday against the Eagles. Looking uncomfortable in the pocket and missing some easy throws, Romo completed 18 of 29 passes for 199 yards with two interceptions.

He took four sacks and seemed eager to avoid big hits to his surgically-repaired back.

Both of Romo's interceptions came on underthrown balls, and he also underthrew Dez Bryant on a potential big gainer. But Romo often had no one open to throw to.

He'll try to bounce back next Thursday at Chicago.

Jack Crawford, Tyler Patmon and Dekoda Watson were all ruled out prior to Thursday. 


Tony Romo benefiting from better supporting cast


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is playing some of the best football of his career. He's thrown 22 touchdowns against three interceptions since the first half of the season opener against San Francisco.

Coach Jason Garrett said a number of factors are at play. "I think a lot of it has to do with the supporting cast," Garrett told the Dallas Morning News. "I think we're protecting better. We're running the ball better. He's got a lot of different weapons at his disposal. He's just doing a good job seeing the defense and throwing it to the right guy."

Tony Romo participates in Monday walkthrough


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Coming off a four-touchdown performance Sunday night, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo participated in Monday's walkthrough ahead of Thursday's showdown with the Eagles. Romo typically misses early-week practices to manage his injured back.

"I don't know that we're going to have much time to go too hard," Romo said, via ESPN.com. "I think if you're playing in football games, I'm sure you can make it through walkthroughs."


Tony Romo a lock going forward


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw a season-high four touchdown passes Week 12 against the Giants, giving him four in a game for the first time since he had five in Week 5 last year. But nearly one-fourth of his Fantasy owners missed out on it, having sat him for ... well, who knows?

Who would be justifiable? Peyton Manning, sure. Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady also make sense. I could even understand Drew Brees, given his history. But beyond that is a pretty tough sell. True, even with this performance, Romo ranks only 13th among quarterbacks in standard CBSSports.com leagues, but it's pretty bunchy after the top three. And if Brady gets elevated for recent performance, so should Romo.

Beginning in Week 3, he has thrown for multiple scores in every game but one, making him the ninth-best quarterback in standard CBSSports.com leagues during that stretch. And that's with him missing a game due to injury. Going by Fantasy points per game instead of just total points, he jumps two more spots to seventh, and two of the quarterbacks ahead of him are Ben Roethlisberger, whose numbers are mostly the product of an insane two-game stretch, and Russell Wilson, who has tailed off significantly after a hot start.

Now look at Romo's matchups coming up. The Eagles, Bears and Eagles again give him three bottom-five pass defenses over the next three weeks, and the Colts in Week 16 aren't far off. Safe to say he should be a fixture in your lineup going forward.


Cowboys QB Tony Romo throws four TDs in win vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo completed 18 of his 26 pass attempts for 275 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in his team's 31-28 win over the Giants in Week 12.

Romo looked healthy and at the top of his game against a division rival on the road, and it took a game-winning drive with less than three minutes left on the clock to move the Cowboys to 5-0 on the road this season. He hit No. 1 receiver Dez Bryant for two touchdowns, including the game-winner. Romo and the Cowboys have a huge matchup coming up against the Eagles on Thursday. The two teams are tied at 8-3 atop the NFC East.
