IRVING, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo might not want to take the splint
off his passing hand the way he and the Dallas Cowboys are playing.
Romo crisply guided Dallas to touchdowns on its first three
drives and points on the first four, then turned the early surge
into a 34-9 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday.
The Cowboys won their third straight, matching their best roll
of the season, all coming since Romo returned from a broken right
pinkie. Dallas is 8-4 and back near the top of the NFC playoff
race. Now comes the hard part - staying there.
The Cowboys' next three games are against Pittsburgh, the New
York Giants and Baltimore. That stretch will be even tougher if
they're without linebacker DeMarcus Ware and running back Marion
Barber. Both left with injuries in the third quarter, Ware because
of a sprained left knee and Barber with a bruised right pinkie toe.
