Tony Romo throws first touchdown pass in return for Cowboys (Video)
Tony Romo fractured his collarbone in the second game of the season for the Dallas Cowboys and it's been a rough seven games since for Dallas with all of them resulting in losses. However, Romo started the Cowboys' Week 11 matchup against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and, at the end of the first half, Romo finally made his presence felt in the Dallas offense.
Past the two-minute warning in the first half, Romo and the Cowboys were in the middle of a long drive down the field. Romo then decided to take a shot at the end zone, looking for Terrance Williams down the right side of the field and around the goal line. The returning quarterback dropped an absolute dime where only Williams could go up and get it, which the receiver did for the 31-yard touchdown:
Despite the fact that he wasn't wholly remarkable for the first half, this is why Romo returning is so huge for the Cowboys. This is a play that Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel are never going to make. Cassel wouldn't throw it that far downfield and Weeden would try and get picked off. In the understatement of the century, Romo is just so far superior than his backups.
It's clear that Dallas is a totally different team with Romo, but the question is how far that will take them this year. The NFC East is still wide-open and, if Romo gets back to this form consistently, they could possibly sneak into the postseason after reeling off some wins.
