Quarterback Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys call an audible against the Atlanta Falcons.

It took a while, but Tony Romo and the Cowboys offense is rolling right now. A pair of Romo touchdown passes have given the Cowboys a 17-7 lead at the half.

The first  was a 59-yard strike to Miles Austin to give the Cowboys a 10-7 lead. After a defensive stop, Romo showed flashes of 2007, using his feet to find Patrick Crayton in the back of the end zone to make a 17-7 score.

It was not a banner start for the Cowboys. Atlanta marched right down the field on a 16-play, 80-yard touchdown drive to take a quick 7-0 lead. On the ensuing possession, the Cowboys were forced to punt, and we had first quarter boos.

But the defense settled down, sacking Matt Ryan three-times, and forced two-turnovers to get the Cowboys back in the this game.

Romo is 13-17, for 185-yards and two-touchdowns.
