What a week it has been for the Cowboys!
Finally, the team has put an end to their miserable losing streak! The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Miami Dolphins 24-14 in a close game that was decided in the fourth quarter. This victory marks a 3-0 record for them with Tony Romo as their starting quarterback.
With the help of their outstanding offensive leader, Dallas is now savoring the feeling of triumph – the feeling that they’ve been longing for since Romo’s absence. Although the success wasn’t because of the QB’s hard work alone, it was still great to see him playing in the field, motivating his teammates to never surrender and continue the fight. Romo completed 18 of his 28 passing attempts for 227 yards. It wasn’t his best game though since he was intercepted twice during the game, but luckily Tony was able to throw two touchdowns passes before the day ended.
Under Tony Romo’s leadership, fans witnessed a more energized and productive Cowboys team. The ground attack became ferocious with Darren Mcfadden carrying the ball 29 times for 129 yards. Robert Turbin, the newest RB on the team, also showed what he’s capable of as he compiled 35 yards on 7 carries. After a series of unsatisfactory performances from the running game, it was nice to see them bounce back.
The unpleasant weather didn’t stop the boys from reaching their goal line. While it took some time for Romo to smoothly connect with wide receiver Dez Bryant, it was worth the wait for they had snatched the lead for good. The beginning of the fourth quarter was truly intense as the crowd saw the premier quarterback’s beautiful 16-yard strike to Bryant. The two have exceeded the record of Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin for the most touchdown passes made by a QB-WR duo with 50 touchdowns in 68 games.
Dallas’ defense also did a fantastic job throughout the game. The presence of Tony Romo seems to have lifted them up for they noticeably got firmer throughout the game. Aside from the three sacks they had collected in the fourth quarter, the D-line also narrowed down Miami Dolphins’ chances of offensive success. The opposing team only garnered 210 yards of total offense and 70 yards rushing.
No matter how good or bad it was, winning is definitely winning and Cowboys fans must admit that nothing feels better than knowing your favorite team is going home victorious!
