Romo Passes Aikman To Become Franchise Leader In TD Passes

Tony Romo threw three touchdowns in the Cowboys win over the Eagles Sunday night



    Tony Romo became the Dallas Cowboys’ franchise leader in touchdown passes on Sunday night, with a three-touchdown performance against the Philadelphia Eagles. But he’s not chomping at the bit to talk about this accomplishment. Not at the moment, anyway.

    Romo passing Hall of Famer Troy Aikman was a nice footnote to a 38-33 win over the rival Eagles for the Cowboys’ signal caller, but in terms of the season, that’s all it is--a footnote. Something to be looked at after the season or after the career is finished.

    "I'm not trying to minimize anything," Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. "Really, you're just singularly focused on trying to bring a championship to this town and this organization. In that process, everything else kind of takes a back burner."

    For the season, Romo has thrown 19 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, while leading a banged-up Cowboys squad to a 6-6 record.
