Dallas Cowboys show signs of life in Kansas City


KANSAS CITY -- The Cowboys offense woke up in this second half. Tashard Choice's 36-yard touchdown run got the Cowboys to within 13-10 heading into the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Tony Romo has been efficient. He's completed 16 of 25 passes for 195 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. If this keeps up it will be the third consecutive game Romo has not thrown a touchdown pass.

Receiver Miles Austin has played very well in this game replacing Roy Williams, and it should give Romo more confidence to get him the ball. Austin has seven catches for 128 yards in his first career start in the early stages of the fourth quarter.

Overall, the Cowboys have four dropped passes, and good teams don't do that.
