Cowboys 34 Bears 10

Ravens Gameday

Nfl Week 3

September 24, 2007

Chicago -- Tony Romo looked desperate early on, scrambling, rushing throws and doing all he could to avoid the Chicago Bears' defense. The only thing he didn't do was go away.

Romo passed for 329 yards after a rough start, Anthony Henry had two interceptions for the second straight week and the Dallas Cowboys made a big statement, beating the Chicago Bears, 34-10, last night.

The Cowboys showed just how serious a contender they are in the NFC during the second half, outscoring the Bears 31-7. Dallas is 3-0 for the first time since 1999.

Romo again showed that last season's rise from obscurity to the Pro Bowl was no fluke, going 22-for-35 with two touchdowns and an interception.

He led the Cowboys on an 89-yard touchdown drive to start the second half, breaking a 3-3 tie. And he put the Cowboys ahead for good, 17-10, with a 10-yard touchdown pass late in the third quarter that capped a 91-yard drive.

Henry added a 28-yard interception return early in the fourth quarter to make it 27-10, and Marion Barber scored from the 1 after breaking off a 54-yard run.
