ARLINGTON The Cowboys offensive line didn't do Tony Romo many favors in Sunday's home opener. Romo was sacked four times and hit hard after several throws. After the game, Romo said the 16-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was one of the "most physically tough" games he's played in. He then joked that he'd probably be using some ice packs tonight. "As a quarterback, you're going to take a shot, a big one here and there," Romo said. "It's just football. It happens sometimes. It's just part of playing the position in the game." Perhaps the biggest hit Romo sustained Sunday came late in the third quarter. The Cowboys quarterback was sandwiched between two defenders and was hit in the facemask by the helmet of Bucs defensive end Michael Bennett. Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said after the game that he was expecting a flag on the play. "We'll see how that reads with the league," Jones added.

The Buccaneers are hardly a consistent team, but Greg Schiano is at least consistent in his coaching philosophies.

Schiano, of course, took a lot of heat following the Bucs' Week...

Video: More Debacles for NFL Replacement Refs

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...

Freeman, Bucs held down by Cowboys

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys finally had some short scoring drives, and needed them.

Bucs fail to produce in road loss to Cowboys

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.

En Fuego: Stevie Johnson

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...
