Cowboys QB Tony Romo showed what he was made of as he led his team to defeat the 49ers in overtime, 27-24.
Romo was on the sidelines to start the 2nd half of Sunday’s game after being examined for a rib injury. He took a big shot towards the end of the 1st half and was wincing in pain after being hit on a blindside cornerback blitz by Carlos Rogers as he was throwing in the second quarter.
When he came out of the locker room after halftime and tried to get in the game the team pulled him off the field and Jon Kitna was put in to play.
Later in the fourth quarter, Romo re-entered the game throwing to Miles Austin for a 25 yard touchdown and continued to lead Dallas through the quarter and into an overtime victory from a 10 point deficit. Austin had 143 receiving yards and Jason Witten 102 yards.
Romo completed 20 of 33 passes for 345 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
Receiver Jesse Holley, who won Michael Irvin’s Fourth and Long reality show, caught a 77-yard pass from Romo to set up the game-winning field goal.
