After making costly mistakes that led to an opening week loss, Tony Romo turned in a gutsy performance, leaving with a rib injury, but returning to lead the Cowboys to a come-from-behind overtime victory in San Francisco on Sunday.
Here are my five thoughts on the Cowboys' 27-24 win over the 49ers.
1.) Maybe Romo can produce when the game is on the line. After his fourth quarter errors against the Jets were heavily dissected by local and national media members, Romo said Wednesday that he couldn't wait to get back on the field.

Romo threw for 345 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Not only did he play through the rib pain, but he was effective when the offense needed him to be. Romo helped set up the game-tying field goal by completing five-of-six during the final 3:48 of regulation. Then in overtime, he hit Jesse Holley for a 77-yard gain, which set up the game-winning field goal.
