ARLINGTON, Texas – Without Miles Austin, Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, Tony Romo was able to look like Tony Romo on Saturday against St. Louis.

Romo led the Cowboys to scores on all three drives – two touchdowns and a field goal – while completing 9 of 13 passes for 198 yards. One incompletion came on a throwaway and a second came on a drop. He finished with a passer rating of 151.4.

“I just think I have to go out and execute the play, find the open guy and do what you do,” Romo said. “When we get those starters back, it’ll be a big boost for us.”

Romo’s preseason is over with coach Jason Garrett holding the starters out of Wednesday’s preseason finale against Miami.

In three preseason games, Romo completed 21 of 32 passes for 303 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions behind an offensive line that has not featured its five expected starters.

Are the Cowboys ready for the New York Giants on Sept. 5?

“We’ll find out in two weeks,” Romo said.
