Maybe Dr. Jones was right. Maybe Tony Romo is 100 percent.
The Cowboys quarterback saw his first action since back surgery Saturday night, and showed a glimpse of his old form in both directions.
Romo had to step up and out of the pocket before hitting Dez Bryant for a 22-yard gain to convert a second-and-19. He threw deep down the sideline a few plays later, and didn’t immediately come up holding his back.
But then he and DeMarco Murray fumbled an exchange, with Ravens linebacker Courtney Upshaw picking up the gift and returning it 26 yards for a touchdown.
The most danger Romo was in was probably in making a flailing grab for Upshaw.
UPDATE 7:26 p.m. ET: Romo followed up with a 31-yard touchdown pass to a single-covered Dez Bryant. The ball was a bit underthrown (maybe on purpose), but Bryant came back to make a good play on the ball.
That was enough for the night, and he finished 4-of-5 for 80 yards and the touchdown.
