Cowboys build early lead, then coast to victory

Tony Romo threw for three touchdowns and ran
for a fourth score Saturday night, helping the Dallas Cowboys stop
a two-game losing streak with a 31-15 victory over the struggling
Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The win gave the Cowboys (8-6) a half-game lead over the New
York Giants in the NFC East. The Bucs (4-10) lost for the eighth
straight time.
Romo threw a pair of 8-yard TD passes to Miles Austin and Dez
Bryant in the first quarter, then finished a seven-play, 89-yard
drive with a 9-yarder to Laurent Robinson to make it 21-0 with just
under 5 minutes remaining in the second quarter. Romo made it 28-0
on a quarterback sneak in the closing seconds of the opening half.
