The Tampa Bay Buccaneers showed that their defense means business, even if the other team is in their victory formation.During the Buccaneers game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday afternoon, the Bucs defense once again tried to blitz during the Cowboys victory formation stance.With only a few seconds left on the clock and with the Cowboys with the 16-10 lead, Buccaneers head coach...
Poor Tony Romo, not only did he get destroyed on this sack by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Gerald McCoy but he didn't even get a penalty for a helmet-to-helmet hit from the replacement officials:
The Buccaneers are hardly a consistent team, but Greg Schiano is at least consistent in his coaching philosophies. Schiano again dialed up a blitz as the opposing team's offense lined up in victory formation. It was Tony Romo and the Cowboys who had to stave off Tampa Bay's late-game bull rush this week. Schiano, of course, took a lot of heat following the Bucs' Week...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have had to go a long way to score their touchdowns this season.
Their four touchdown drives have averaged 78 yards, including a 95-yarder for their only score in the last game.
''You have to do a lot of things right to go 80 yards, 60 yards, whatever,'' Romo said Thursday. ''When you have...
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo was satisfied even after being sacked four times and turning the ball over three times in the Dallas Cowboys' home opener.
I see you reaching for the “drop” button, I am begging you don’t drop Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell. I know he was one of the most talked about waiver wire pickups by all the fantasy “experts”, and you bought into starting him this week, expecting a big game. I feel your pain, I started LaFell in every league I could get him in, and I was hoping for some production...
Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys could be facing a disappointing 1-2 start if they do not fix the problems that led them to a head-scratching blowout loss against the Seattle Seahawks last week. The loss led many fans and critics to wonder what kind of the team the Cowboys are this year? Although the first weeks of the NFL season always contain a degree of parody, a loss...
It’s been a tough season so far for the replacement officials in the NFL. It seems to be obvious to almost every NFL player, coach and fan, who’s name isn’t Roger Goodell, that the replacement reps aren’t up to par with the currently locked out officials. We all know that the old officials made mistakes, but the amount of mistakes seemed miniscule compared to what we’ve...

Matt Barkley is consensus #1 pick in the 2013 NFL draft. He has all the skills to be an Franchise QB. Now, where will he end up? The Chiefs are a squad that is desperate for a Franchise guy, but it remains to be seen who will falling flat for Matt.
Mucho Frio: Tony Romo
En Fuego: Big Ben
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys finally had some short scoring drives, and needed them.
There also were a couple of extra kneel-downs by Romo before the Cowboys had secured a 16-10 victory Sunday in their home opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Romo was unscathed on those extra snaps when the Bucs, a week after their big push against the New York...
When it comes to hanging tough on the road against NFC East powerhouses, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting far more experience than they'd like these days.
And much to their dismay, they're also finding themselves with plenty of time to practice head coach Greg Schiano's controversial blitz-the-victory formation call.
Even with some impressive play along the way...
ARLINGTON, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys rode their defense to overcome a mistake-prone Tony Romo and beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16-10 Sunday afternoon before of a crowd of 81,984 at Cowboys Stadium. Romo turned the ball over three times, but Dallas' defense allowed just one touchdown and 166 total yards as the Cowboys improved to 2-1 in their home opener. The Buccaneers...
I won’t shoot myself in the leg this year Juan…
I liked Stevie Johnson coming into the season, but didn’t love him. He was still dealing with a groin issue and Fitzpatrick faded down the stretch of the of 2011 season as he was either injured or teams figured him out.
So far this season, the Bills offense has been pretty darn effective and Johnson has 50 yards or more with...
The Dallas Cowboys beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 16-10. However, the score could have been one less touchdown for the Bucs as their offense could not get anything going.
Tampa Bay started off quick when Aqib Talib stepped in front of Cowboys’ wide receiver Miles Austin to intercept the pass from Tony Romo. Josh Freeman would go on to throw a one yard touchdown pass...
