London, England (SportsNetwork.com) – Tony Romo returned early from a back
injury and threw three touchdown passes, leading the Dallas Cowboys to a 31-17
win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium.
Romo was diagnosed with two small fractures in his back following a loss to
the Redskins on Oct. 27. He was held out of last week’s 28-17 home loss to
Arizona but made the trip to London and showed no ill-effects from the injury,
completing 20-of-27 passes for 246 yards.
Dez Bryant had six receptions for 158 yards and two touchdowns — all in the
first half — good for the second best receiving game of his career. Jason
Witten also made a touchdown catch and DeMarco Murray ran for 100 yards.
Murray, the league’s leading rusher, has gone over 100 yards on the ground in
nine of 10 games this season.
Dallas (7-3) improved to 4-0 away from home.
Denard Robinson had another productive day running the football for
Jacksonville (1-9) in his fifth straight start, carrying 15 times for 60
yards and two touchdowns.
Blake Bortles threw for 290 yards with an interception, and Cecil Shorts III
caught five passes for 119 yards in the setback.
