Tony Romo's passing accuracy was curiously off during the latter stages of Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Romo sustained a rib injury the previous week against the Giants and took a painkilling injection before the game in Kansas City.
In his postgame interview, Romo said the effects of the shot did not wear off during the game.
However, he appeared to alter his follow-through on passes in the fourth quarter, leading to some wayward throws. One of the passes was picked off, but the interception was overturned by a penalty.
"I think you'd have to actually ask him about how he was feeling at different times of the ballgame," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said during his Monday news conference. "I thought he competed well throughout the game."
Romo was unavailable for comment Monday, but Garrett said his quarterback has not told him that his sore ribs are affecting his play.
"He gives no indication that they are," Garrett said.
BEST OF MAXIM
IRVING, Texas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo anticipates needing another painkilling injection to get his sore ribs through Sunday's game with the Rams.
Romo injured his ribs when he was sandwiched in a sack in the season opener against the Giants. Although there was no fracture, he needed an injection to play last Sunday in Kansas City and expects to take another one this week...

Two weeks in the books for your Dallas Cowboys and the record now stands at 1-1. The pessimist in me says that is where a team led by the perpetually .500 Jason Garrett and Tony Romo...
1. Dez Bryant- The superstar wide receiver caught 9 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown against a rather pesky corner in Brandon Flowers. Bryant was on the same page as Tony Romo all day, and the two might just be the best QB-WR duo in the league. Bryant made a unbelievable diving catch on an overthrow by Romo, and also caught a ball while fighting off pass interference...
IRVING, Texas -- To put it lightly, Jason Garrett answered a few questions on Monday about his team's inability to establish a running game Sunday in Kansas City.
To summarize his many responses, the Dallas Cowboys head coach said the team needs to "recommit to running the football."
"In yesterday's game, we were in some no-huddle type situations for some...
Star wide receiver Dez Bryant lived up to the billing against Kansas City on Sunday, hauling in this unbelievable diving catch on a bomb from Tony Romo.
The Kansas City Chiefs are 2-0 after edging out Tony Romo‘s Cowboys by a point on Sunday afternoon. Andy Reid and Alex Smith have rejuvenated a team that had been languishing for years in a competitive AFC West. The team is finally playing exciting football, and the fans can feel a different kind of energy in the air.
For one unruly fan, that energy happened to be several hundred...
There were quite a few injury scares for the Dallas Cowboys in their 36-31 win over the New York Giants Sunday night. However, it appears "America's Team" will be just fine when they march into Arrowhead Stadium Sunday, for their Week 2 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. Here is your Week 2 injury report for the 'Boys. Linebacker Ernie Sims did not practice...
The offensive examination this week gives me a chance to argue with the wind about the role of running in the NFL in 2013. You see, in the modern age, there are few things that get debated by those that enjoy the advanced metrics that Football Outsiders and similar numbers sources like the role of the run game and runpass ratios. Do you run to win or do you run when you win? They...
Why have the Dallas Cowboys struggled to be better than mediocre? Why has this team gone 8-8 in back to back seasons?
Tony Romo could not guide the Cowboys to a win in the fourth quarter against the Chiefs.
Perhaps we will have even more answers later this year, as the Cowboys look very much like an 8-8 team thus far. Most good teams at some point build some momentum. Perhaps the...
Tweet The Dallas Cowboys committed to Tony Romo with a big contract extension earlier this year so the spotlight will be even brighter than normal on the franchise’s quarterback to produce. That job becomes a bit easier when you have Dez Bryant making plays like this for you down the field. There’s little doubt […]
IRVING, Texas -- There are certain sounds that are evocative enough to promise trouble is upon you.
It's when you hear the squealing of tires braking on pavement, when you hear a chorus of children singing hauntingly in a scary movie, when you hear your wife say, "We need to talk."
The noise that causes those same sort of chills to run up the spines of Dallas Cowboys...
