IRVING -- No matter how impressive the record is, Tony Romo tries not to take credit for it. Entering Sunday's game in Washington, the Cowboys quarterback is 17-2 during the month of November. But when it came time to talk about that impressive stat, Romo came no where close to taking all the credit. "You've got to play good in November to set yourself up to be in position to have a chance," Romo said Thursday. "Obviously that's important." That's fine, but what about him? Does he get in a groove in November? "Maybe," Romo responded. But it's the best record of any quarterback in the month. "Let's just leave it at that then," he said, before adding: "There's no secret to success." Whether Romo wants to admit it, he's put together consecutive weeks of excellent football. Posting a franchise-record 88.5 percent completion percentage last Sunday and throwing for 279 yards and two scores the week prior to that. After his play cost the Cowboys two chances at victories earlier in the year, he has to feel good about shutting up his critics. Well, at least for a few weeks. There are a lot of experts and fans that want to know why he is playing better. So what does he think about that? "I think you're always going to be asked that question until you do," Romo said. "Then, if you do, I'm sure there will be something. It's part of playing. You guys wouldn't have a job really if you never could question us." What about the fans that question him? "Well, the fans too," Romo said. "That's what makes it fun to watch. Is this player good enough? Is this guy not?" -- Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
