TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys are off to a good start without Terrell Owens.
Romo threw for 353 yards and three long touchdowns Sunday, helping the Cowboys begin the post-T.O. era with a 34-21 victory that ruined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' debut under coach Raheem Morris.
Miles Austin avoided two tacklers on the sideline to score on a 42-yard reception just before halftime and Roy Williams streaked through a mistake-prone secondary on a 66-yard TD play early in the third quarter.
Romo teamed with Patrick Crayton, who had six catches for 135 yards, on the longest completion of the Pro Bowl quarterback's career - 80 yards - for a fourth-quarter TD that thwarted any realistic hopes for a Tampa Bay comeback.
