Tony Romo avoids sack, completes pass (GIF)


The Dallas Cowboys opened up the game against the Denver Broncos by marching down the field and scoring a touchdown. The scoring play was an incredible two yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant along the back of the end zone. Bryant barely got his toes in bounds to get the score, some how he managed to though.

Then when the Denver Broncos got the ball, and were driving down the field, wide receiver Eric Decker fumbled the ball. Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne recovered the fumble.

The Cowboys took over and on a third and 10 quarterback Tony Romo looked like he was about to be sacked. Somehow he channeled that magic he showed earlier in his career and avoided the tackle after running all over the place. As he was running towards the line of scrimmage a Broncos defender was coming towards him. He got the pass off and completed it to Jason Witten for a first down.

The Cowboys scored on that drive as well to give them an early 14-0 lead over the undefeated Broncos.
