Romo is terrific when it comes to avoiding sacks and pressures so obviously the hits won't show up in the stat sheet because he avoids them, but there is no question that he is getting pressure in his face consistently. When you get pressure in your face on a consistent basis, you rush throws, and then the turnovers start to pile up. Romo has to get better certainly, but so does the offensive line. I'm not sure how they can get better though. They're simply not that good.
