    Tony Romo looked like vintage Tony Romo on Sunday in his second game since shedding the Kevlar vest that was protecting his now-healed fractured rib. Romo moved around in the pocket, bought time with this feet and found open receivers all day.

    His 7-yard touchdown pass to Laurent Robinson, which tied the game at 17, came after a Romo scramble on third-and-goal. His 59-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten came when he bought time by moving to his left away from pressure. Romo said he used his eyes to move a defensive back away from Witten while on the run, and “Wit did the rest.”

    “One of the best things that Tony does is feel what is going on around him in the pocket,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “Over the course of his career, he’s developed into an outstanding pocket passer, and he’s done that without losing the ability to see things and use his instincts and feel for the game. I think what separates him from some other guys is that sometimes he gets out of the pocket, but he keeps his eyes up. He’s made a number of plays running for first downs this year and throughout his career, but he also has the ability to keep his eyes up and see the field and somehow keep that poise about him to get himself righted. He does it going right; he does it going left; and he did it a number of times today in this game.”

    Yes he did. They were all great plays, too. He's a hell of a QB.

    A healthy and determined Romo = problems for the NFL.
