PITTSBURGH -- The Cowboys sustained the momentum they gained late in first half with an eight-play, 67-yard touchdown drive on their first possession of the second half. Romo finally got in a nice rhythm and rookie running back Tashard Choice shredded the Steelers' defense. I'm almost thinking Choice changed cleats at halftime. He slipped and fell several times in the first half, but he didn't have any trouble on that first possession.

It's hard to pin Terrell Owens's 12-yard touchdown on cornerback Ike Taylor. Romo had great protection and then he did a nice job of buying himself even more time before delivering a ball in the back of the end zone. T.O. reached up and snapped the ball out of the air.

Until that point, it hadn't been a great 35th birthday for the controversial wide receiver.
