    The New Year’s Weekend Experience You’ll be Talking About Forever

    Tony Romo has returned and he and Dez Bryant are putting on a show in London today, as the Dallas Cowboys lead the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-7 at half.

    Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey opened the scoring with a 54-yard field goal to make it 3-0 Dallas.

    The Jaguars answered with a nine-play, 80-yard drive, capped by a 32-yard touchdown run from running back Denard Robinson.

    The Cowboys retook the lead, extended on that lead, and then extended THAT lead on three touchdown passes from Tony Romo. First, set up by a muffed punt from Jacksonville that set them up at the six, Romo hit Jason Witten in the end zone to make it 10-7 Cowboys.

    The second quarter would be the Dez show. Bryant caught touchdown passes of 35 and 68 yards from Romo, and finished the half with six catches, 158 yards and the pair of touchdowns.

    Romo finished the half 16 of 21 for 225 yards and three touchdowns and DeMarco Murray is being his old impressive self, with 71 first half rushing yards on 13 carries, and  another 27 yards on four receptions.
