TAMPA, Fla. - Tony Romo was nearly flawless in getting the Dallas Cowboys back on track in the NFC East.
Romo threw for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth score Saturday night, helping the first-place Cowboys beat the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-15.
Dallas stopped a two-game losing streak in which it blew fourth-quarter leads to allow a seemingly solid grip on the division lead to slip away.
The victory gave the Cowboys (8-6) a half-game lead over New York. The Bucs (4-10) lost their eighth straight.
