The roof and the doors were open for today's game versus the Minnesota Vikings.

Tony Romo completed 34-of-51 passes (66.7%) for 337 yards and two touchdowns today. Romo's 337 yards today was his 43rd career 300-yard game. Dallas owns a 27-16 (.628) record when Romo reaches the 300-yard mark.

For his career, Romo now has 28,290 passing yards to pass Terry Bradshaw (27,989) and Ron Jaworski (28,190) to crack the top-50 and reach 49th spot in passing yards all-time in NFL history.

Jason Witten led the team with eight catches for 102 yards and a touchdown. He now has caught at least one pass in 79 straight games and trails only Michael Irvin (117 from 1990-98) for the team record. Witten's last game without a reception was at the N.Y. Giants (11/2/08).

This is something the cameras don't catch on television. After every game, a group of players always gather at midfield to hold hands in prayer. Pretty cool after doing battle with each other all day.
