ROMO-BILLS-COVER

Romo, Murray Key Cowboys 44-7 Win Against The Bills

Wow, I’m still flying high after watching the Cowboys annihilate the Buffalo Bills 44-7 in a game Romo and Co. had to win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

The Cowboys absolutely dominated the Bills from the opening kickoff to the final seconds and excelled in just about every aspect of the game.

Tony Romo was near perfect throwing 23/26 for 270 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant had a great game as well hauling in six catches for 74 yards with a TD. Laurent Robinson filled in for the injured Miles Austin and recorded three receptions for 73 yards and two scores.

Then you have rookie running back DeMarco Murray who continues cruise and picked up 135 yards on 2o carries along with six  catches for 36 yards. This kid’s a beast!

Murray was such a concern for the Bills’ defense, it freed up Romo to have a field day with his receivers in the secondary.

“They can’t load the box on us and they can’t double team wide receivers,” Murray said.

The defense was spectacular and featured great efforts by Terrence Newman who had two interceptions and a touchdown, and the always reliable DeMarcus Ware who picked up another sack.

“We’re banging away,” Garrett said. “We’re trying to take it one day at a time. … The teams that make the playoffs and the teams that do well in the playoffs are the teams that improve through the course of the season.”

Just an impressive performance all around…

How ‘Bout Them Cowboys!

Special Notes

  • This was Tony Romo’s 21st game with three TD passes, breaking the record held by Danny White.
  • Jason Witten caught five passes, pushing him past Hall of Famer Ozzie Newsome for the third-most catches by a tight end in NFL history.
  • Cowboys rookie kicker Dan Bailey made three field goals to extend his streak to 21 straight, the third-best in franchise history.

    Romo was actually 23/26. Almost 89 percent.

    It was a great team win. Just dominant.

    • Joe D.

      Thanks for the heads up, Tom. I made a typo and fixed it.

  4. They can’t load the box on us and they can’t double team wide receivers

    What impressed me most (and I was impressed by many aspects) was the route running of Dez Bryant. Much has been made of him not knowing enough of the play book’s details to be relied upon in critical situations. He took a huge forward Sunday, showing that in Austin’s absence, he can be depended upon to know the play and execute his route.

    The magic of Aikman/Irvin was mastering Norv Turners timing plays. Irving was running one direction and the ball was going in another, but the common goal was that the pass and the receiver meet up at a predetermined spot. It’s beautiful to watch!

    It’s Deja vu all over again!
