Tony Romo focused on victories, not records
ARLINGTON, Texas -- There will be a day when Tony Romo will look back at what happened Sunday night inside Cowboys Stadium and smile about what he accomplished.
Since 2006, when he became the Dallas Cowboys' starting quarterback, Romo has gone from an overnight sensation to frustrating and overhyped to the team's only hope for success.
It's nights like Sunday, when he became the franchise's all-time leader in touchdown passes by surpassing Hall of Famer Troy Aikman, when you see the greatness that has been there far more than many people want to realize.
Romo threw three touchdown passes in the second half -- two to Dez Bryant, one to Miles Austin -- and finished his night 22-of-27 for 303 yards. He didn't throw an interception for the fourth time in five games and finished with a season-high passer rating of 150.5.
Most important to Romo, the Cowboys beat Philadelphia, 38-33, to remain in contention for a postseason spot with four games to play.
"I'm not trying to minimize anything," Romo said. "Really, you're just singularly focused on trying to bring a championship to this town and this organization. In that process, everything else kind of takes a back burner."
