ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo threw for 198 yards with two long touchdowns to Dwayne Harris while playing only the first quarter, and the Dallas Cowboys beat the St. Louis Rams 20-19 Saturday night.
In what was supposed to be Romo's most extensive action of the preseason, he showed more than enough to coach Jason Garrett in three offensive drives, even with his top three pass-catchers hurt and not playing.
Romo completed 9-of-13 passes, including a 61-yard TD after Harris got behind the Rams defense. On the next possession, Harris split two defenders after making the catch for a 38-yard score.
Dallas (2-1) wraps up its preseason at home against Miami on Wednesday, a week before opening the regular season at the New York Giants. The Rams (1-2) play Baltimore on Thursday.
