    IRVING -- Nobody is putting much stock in Tony Romo's amazing career against Tampa Bay.

    Not him.

    Not the head coach.

    Not Tampa Bay.

    And actually, the reasoning rings true.

    "Teams are different from year to year," coach Jason Garrett said.

    "Just a new staff over there," Romo said.

    "It's against a different scheme than we'll be running," new Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said.

    But when the Dallas Cowboys meet the Buccaneers on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium, the numbers are bound to give at least a subconscious lift to Romo and the home team.

    They are too astounding not to.

    Romo is 3-0 in three starts against Tampa, with 11 touchdowns, no interceptions, a 70.1 completion percentage, 908 yards and a 144.8 passer rating.
