    Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes even as Dez Bryant again sat out for the Dallas Cowboys, who lost 28-14 to the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday night.

    Romo, who completed one pass for minus-1 yard in his only series while Dallas lost its first two preseason games, was 5 of 8 for 88 yards in his five series. Both TDs were in the second quarter, with a 60-yard catch-and-run by Terrance Williams.

    Dallas led 14-10 when Romo threw his final pass, an 8-yard TD to Lucky Whitehead.

    Bryant has dealt with a strained hamstring throughout camp and hasn't played since signing his new $70 million, five-year contract in mid-July.

    Teddy Bridgewater completed all seven of his passes for 76 yards and finally found a connection with his new receiver. Mike Wallace had three catches for 50 yards, including a 39-yard grab.

    Cordarrelle Patterson had a 107-yard kickoff return for Minnesota.
