Cowboys Vs. Buccaneers Score: Dallas Jumps Out 7-0 On Fumble, Romo Scramble

Tony Romo showed a flash of the old 2007 “jedi” Romo on the Dallas Cowboys’ opening drive against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saturday night, hitting Miles Austin for an early TD. After a Josh Freeman fumble, forced by Anthony Spencer and recovered by Bradie James, the Cowboys drove smartly into the red zone on the back of Felix Jones.

The drive stalled a bit inside the ten, forcing a 3rd-goal from the eight. On the four-point play, Romo dropped back and danced around his pocket for several seconds, even bumping into his linemen, before stepping up and finding Austin over the middle just past the goal line.

Sean Jones appeared to have both hands on the ball, but Austin swiped it away as the two fell back toward the line. The call on the field was that Austin had control of the ball while still in the end zone, and after a review the call stood.

Early first quarter: Cowboys 7, Bucs 0
