Jason Witten: Best he's seen Tony Romo
By Todd Archer
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo set two franchise records in Sunday’s win against Buffalo.
He completed 88.5 percent of his passes (23 of 26) and had the 21st three-touchdown pass of his career. Danny White, who was broadcasting the game for Compass Media Network, saw his name move down a peg in the team’s record book.
White completed 19 of 23 passes (87.5%) on Nov. 6, 1983, and had 20 three-TD games.
“Probably the best game I’ve seen him play where he’s just picking them apart with the way he approaches it,” tight end Jason Witten said. “They were trying to give a lot of different looks. He knew where he wanted to go with the ball. … I think he’s getting healthy and it’s a sign of what’s ahead with the way he’s really being a dictator out there with how his approach is.”
Romo wasn’t about to say it was his best game, but he acknowledged he is as healthy as he has been since the season opener. He did not wear the protective vest for the first time since fracturing a rib Week 2 at San Francisco and did not take a pain-killing injection for the second straight game.
“It is nice being healthy these past couple weeks,” Romo said. “The ball usually goes where you are coming when you are healthy. That helps. It is about the guys giving me enough time to go through the progressions and reads.”
