Tony Romo silenced his critics (albeit temporarily, I’m sure) with a nearly flawless performance in the Dallas Cowboys’ 24-17 win over the defending champion New York Giants at Met Life Stadium in the Meadowlands. The big game, which kicked off the 2012 NFL season, found the favored Giants facing an efficient Cowboys offense that racked up 3 touchdowns courtesy of the arm of Romo. Romo threw 2 TD’s to Kevin Ogletree and one to Miles Austin as he totalled 307 passing yards on 22 completions in 29 attempts. Balanced nicely by DeMarco Murray’s 131 yards on 20 carries, the Cowboys were able to get a lead and then bleed the clock. Romo hit a clutch throw on 3rd and 2 with just over 2 minutes to go that helped the ‘Boys seal the victory.
