Romo rally leads Cowboys at home
ARLINGTON, Texas — Tony Romo got another chance after throwing a late interception at home. He came through.
Romo threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds left, as the Cowboys beat the Vikings.
Romo's 7-yard pass to Harris answered an 11-yard scoring run by Adrian Peterson that had given Minnesota a 23-20 lead. The East Texas kid raised on the Cowboys had 140 yards rushing in his first game at their $1.2 billion stadium.
"We just have to keep the belief throughout the whole football game," Romo said. "I never doubted that we would find a way to win this game, and we did it."
Cowboys defensive end George Selvie, a former USF star, knocked the ball out of quarterback Christian Ponder's hand in the end zone, and Dallas defensive tackle Nick Hayden recovered for a touchdown and a 20-10 lead.
