The return of quarterback Tony Romo seem to spark the Dallas Cowboys (3-7) as they defeated the Miami Dolphins (4-6) 24-14 at Sun Life Stadium. With the win the Dallas Cowboys snapped their seven game losing streak and inched within a game and half out of the NFC East lead.
Romo seemed a little rusty in the beginning of the game but managed to lead the Cowboys offense on several key drives connecting on two touchdowns to Terrance Williams and Dez Bryant.
Tony finished the game going 18 for 28 for 227 passing yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Running back Darren McFadden had a big day also leading the Cowboys ground game with 129 yards on 29 carries.
- Dez Bryant became the fastest Dallas Cowboys receiver to reach 400 career receptions in Cowboys history.
- Tight end Jason Witten played in his 197th consecutive game surpassing the great Bob Lilly.

Next up is the undefeated Carolina Panthers for an important Thanksgiving matchup at AT&T Stadium. The Panthers feature a hard nose defense and running game.
The Cowboys must find a way to pressure Cam Newton and limit his big play ability. On the other side the Dallas Cowboys offensive line will be tested because the Panthers front seven will pose a great challenge.
