    Tony Romo was a record-setting machine on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium.

    And it wasn't for worst fourth-quarter collapse or most interceptions thrown in a half.

    It was for all the right reasons.

    With the Cowboys coming off an "ugly win" over Seattle, they needed their quarterback to come up big.

    Boy, did he ever.

    Romo completed 23 of his 26 pass attempts and had his 21st career three-touchdown game with no interceptions. Both of those numbers set franchise records, passing Danny White in both categories. He did all of that in the first game he hasn't worn his protective vest since breaking a rib in Week 2.

    Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was impressed with what he saw.

    And despite the fact that Romo and Witten are best of friends, there's no sunshine pumping from Witten in this instance.

    "Probably the best game I’ve seen him play where he’s just picking them apart with the way he approaches it,” tight end Jason Witten told ESPN Dallas. “They were trying to give a lot of different looks. He knew where he wanted to go with the ball. … I think he’s getting healthy and it’s a sign of what’s ahead with the way he’s really being a dictator out there with how his approach is.”
