The return of Tony Romo against the Dolphins also marked the return to victory for the Dallas Cowboys for the first time in seven weeks. The Cowboys earned a much-needed win thanks to these plays:
If we knew Romo could complete passes with his left hand we might have seen him on the field earlier! None the less, he’s back, and this was his first completion of the day.

McFadden came up short of the first down, producing a three and out on the first series. When the Cowboys got the ball back, they began to pick up some steam before this Romo interception to Brent Grimes.

If there was a positive from the Cowboys on this play, it came from this EPIC blitz pickup provided by Darren McFadden.

None the less, Dallas would draw first blood in this game on the next Dolphins possession, thanks to this Rolando McClain PICK SIX!

The Cowboys first offensive touchdown was provided by Terrance Williams, who was pretty happy to see number nine back on the field.

A penalty on the celebration combined with a short squib kick allowed the Dolphins to get right back into the game however, as this Jordan Cameron score sent the teams to the locker room with Dallas leading 14-7.
Miami later tied the game in the third quarter as Kenny Stills burned Byron Jones.

Romo and the Cowboys had the immediate answer, as Dez Bryant capped off a long scoring drive with a beautiful 16-yard score. Throw up the X, the Cowboys had the lead for good.
