ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo was pleased with how the first-team offense performed in what is likely their final preseason game. Romo led the Dallas Cowboys on two first-half touchdown drives, the first two of the preseason for the starting unit, during a 24-18 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
"More than anything, you are always trying to build and get better," Romo said. "I do know from past experience if you struggle in the preseason not just a series or a game, that's just too short of a time but if you struggle throughout the entire preseason, I found that your offense is going to be fighting an uphill battle throughout the year.
"If you're able to move the ball consistently throughout camp and throughout the preseason games, usually you are able to do similar things in the regular season."
Romo said he thought it was important to end a couple series with touchdowns to give the first-team unit "a good feeling as we finish the preseason."
"We did that tonight," he said...
