    Romo passes through pain in close Cowboys win

    (AP) ARLINGTON, Texas - Tony Romo had no choice. He had to play, broken rib and all.

    His new bride wouldn't have tolerated anything less.

    "She said, 'Are you kidding? You're playing. I can't have a weak husband lying around the house here,"' Romo said — smiling and wincing after leading the Dallas Cowboys to an 18-16 victory over the Washington Redskins on Monday night.

    Romo had a mostly forgettable night except for the fact Dallas won.

    He was hurting so much he needed two pain-killing injections. His center had a tendency to snap the ball too soon or to the wrong spot. And he couldn't get into the end zone no matter what, not even with a first down on the 2-yard line.
