    The Cowboys played their most complete game of the season on Sunday, beating up the Bills, 44-7, at Cowboys Stadium. We review in our weekly Beat Writers Recap.

    *Tony Romo attempted 26 passes on Sunday but his two best throws were at the start of the game. His third pass of the game went for 25 yards to Jesse Holley. Romo let the ball go with Holley's back to him, but he turned around and caught the pass over a shorter corner Terrence McGee. Romo's next pass, a 34-yard touchdown, came on a stop and go. Romo made the throw with Dez Bryant's back to him, it was almost like a back shoulder fade throw, instead it turned into a jump ball and Bryant made the play look easy when he jumped over Leodis McKelvin, another short corner, for the score.

    *Laurent Robinson is a good receiver, who reminds me of Patrick Cryaton, now in San Diego. Robinson runs the correct routes, catches the ball and unlike Crayton, doesn't talk smack. (We don't mind smack talk, but Jason Garrett isn't a big fan). Here's another thing: Robinson does: He blocks on run plays. Murray's 25 yard run late in the second quarter was a result of him finding no room one side of the field and going to the other. Murray raced down the Cowboys sideline, there was Robinson blocking Drayton Florence.

    * Best thing about Terence Newman's day is not the two interceptions, but how fresh he looked. Cowboys take Newman out from time-to-time to give him a breather. It's not because he's 33 or out of shape, he's in good shape. But a healthy Newman makes the Cowboys secondary so difficult beat agaisnt. The team has three athletic corners with speed and the safeties are strong physical tacklers.

    Interesting that Brady James received no snaps on defense.

    But wait a minute if you listen to some experts on the site we don't have a good secondary...
