TAMPA, Fla. — Tony Romo threw for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth score Saturday night, helping the Dallas Cowboys stop a two-game losing streak with a 31-15 victory over the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Although the cause of the debilitating neurological disorder is unknown, Forrest Gregg, his family and his neurologist say his disease may be related to numerous concussions he suffered during his playing career in the 1950s at SMU and from 1956-71 with the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys will watch some other team win the championship on their home turf for certain if they can't stop this slide.
