Romo's 2 TD passes lift Cowboys by Seahawks 23-13
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo shook off a horribly inefficient first half to throw for a pair of touchdowns, leading the Dallas Cowboys to a 23-13 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Romo had no trouble moving the ball from the start, but the Cowboys (4-4) settled for field goals on consecutive drives that stalled at the 2-yard line and inside the 1. On the next series, Dez Bryant was inside the 1 when a hit he never saw coming caused him to fumble the ball away.
Tied at 6 coming out for the second half, Dallas pulled away behind Romo's touchdown passes of 33 yards to Jason Witten and 6 yards to Laurent Robinson.
The Cowboys' defense bounced back from a lousy effort in Philadelphia last Sunday by holding Seattle (2-6) without a touchdown until midway through the fourth quarter.
