Cowboys 24, Dolphins 14

Romo, good vibes back for Dallas

MIAMI — Tony Romo scrambled in the back of the end zone before improvising to throw his first pass in two months — left-handed for a short gain.

He did even better right-handed.

Romo pulled off his latest comeback victory, returning from a collarbone injury to throw for two scores as the Cowboys beat the Dolphins to snap their seven-game losing streak.

Dallas was 2-0 when Romo got hurt but hadn't won since.

"Winning," Romo said, "is going to put a little more pep in everyone's step."

Romo overcame two interceptions by throwing touchdown passes of 31 yards to Terrance Williams and 16 yards to Dez Bryant.

"Him being back just gives everybody that much more juice," Bryant said. "We all know who our leader is."

Dallas linebacker Rolando McClain scored the game's first points and his first career touchdown on a 12-yard interception return of Ryan Tannehill.
