Tony Romo and Dallas coach Jason Garrett spend a lot of time talking about protecting the ball when chaos surrounds the Cowboys quarterback.
They have another good teaching point from Sunday's 23-20 overtime win against Cleveland.
Just when it looked like Romo would persevere through a career-high seven sacks to lead a Cowboys comeback, he lost a critical fumble that sparked a wild finish and sent Dallas scrambling to find a way to win.
The Cowboys ended up extending the Browns' road losing streak to 12 games when Dan Bailey kicked a 38-yard field goal with 6:07 left in the first overtime game at Cowboys Stadium. Dallas gave up the lead after Romo's miscue, but Bailey forced the extra period on a tying kick with 2 seconds left in regulation.
''Tony didn't protect the ball the way he needed to,'' Garrett said. ''Obviously a big play in the game, one that we had to overcome both the rest of those six minutes of regulation and obviously throu...
BEST OF MAXIM
BEREA One of the obvious silver linings in the overtime loss to the Cowboys was the pressure the Browns put on Tony Romo. The Browns had a season high seven sacks and also hit the quarterback 10 other times.
It was the first time that Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin lined up as the starting defensive tackles all season due to injury. The front four accounted for five of the seven sacks...
Browns cornerback Joe Haden is inactive for Sunday's game against Dallas with an abdominal injury sustained in practice last week.
Haden is a key piece of a defense that is tied for sixth in the NFL with 10 interceptions. Second-year player Buster Skrine will start opposite Sheldon Brown.
Cleveland defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin is back in the lineup after missing three games...
For every play but one, Tony Romo protected the ball through a career-high seven sacks and led a rally to put Dallas in position to win. That one play almost cost the Cowboys dearly Sunday.
Dan Bailey kicked a 38-yard field goal in overtime and Dallas overcame a critical fumble by Romo that sparked a wild ending in the Cowboys' 23-20 victory against Cleveland. It was the 12th...
Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant says he's sorry for stepping out of bounds during a second quarter reception Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
The crowd at Cowboys Stadium booed Bryant after he stepped out of bounds on the play, and then booed him a few times when it was shown on the mega-screen.
"I was hearing it. I was," Bryant said via USA Today. ...
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo persevered through a career-high seven sacks, even avoiding costly mistakes that have dogged his career as he ran from constant pressure.
Hero: Dez BryantFor the first time all season, Dez Bryant was able to put up great numbers without having an asterisk attached to his performance (*he dropped three passes, *dropped the game-tying 2-point conversion, *fumbled a punt). Bryant was un-coverable for the Cleveland secondary, finishing the game with 12 catches for 145 yards and a touchdown.Those numbers could have been...
Tony Romo’s typical throwing position on Sunday.
Some definitions of outrageous:

b: deficient in propriety or good taste
This brings us to the Cowboys’ 23-20 overtime win over the Cleveland Browns. The Cowboys fielded a patchwork offensive line featuring Mackenzy Bernadeau...
As the Cowboys navigate past the 10 game barrier in their season and in to the stretch drive, we now have enough data to begin to learn about this team based on what they do well and more importantly, it seems, what they don't do well at all.
We know that this team has the fewest 10 play drives in the NFL. Of the Cowboys 112 drives, only 11 have lasted 10 plays. That is lower...
Cleveland cornerback Joe Haden won't be available for Sunday's matchup against Dallas. He's been bothered by an oblique injury.Fantasy Spin:With Haden on the sidelines, quarterback Tony Romo should have an easier time finding his receivers. Look for Dez Bryant and Miles Austin to both have productive weeks.
In an effort to take my own advice, I would like to remind any and all that the ugliest win in the world is better than the prettiest defeat. Also, that wins are very difficult to find in this league, so the last thing you want to do is to get picky about how aesthetically pleasing to the eye a victory might be.
But, wow. Nothing comes easy for your 2012 Dallas Cowboys. And they...
Forget everything you've read or heard about this being the easy part of the schedule for the Cowboys.
After the Cowboys needed overtime to beat a bad Browns team, 23-20, it's clear that nothing will be easy for this team. They've improved their record to .500, but show few signs of improvement anywhere else.
Every game will be a challenge because the Cowboys simply...
Through 11 weeks, there can be no doubt about which quarterback in the NFC East is having the best 2012 season. And his name is not Eli Manning.Thanks to a spectacular performance on Sunday by rookie Robert Griffin III, Washington thumped hapless Philadelphia to keep faint playoff hopes alive. And while Manning and the Giants rested, Tony Romo and Dallas managed to squeeze out an...
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo and Dez Bryant finally may be starting to click. The Dallas Cowboys much-maligned quarterback-receiver tandem hooked up like never before Sunday afternoon in a 23-20 overtime win over the Cleveland Browns at Cowboys Stadium. Bryant racked up a career-high 145 receiving yards on 12 catches, including a go-ahead 28-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter...
