One To Remember:
!Just a little more than a year before the blowout in St. Louis, the shoe was on the other foot. The Cowboys were off to their hottest start in years when they dismantled the Rams at Texas Stadium, 35-7. The game is best remembered for one of Tony Romo's all-time highlights, when, with less than a minute to go in the first half and the Cowboys driving, Andre Gurode fired a shotgun snap well over the quarterback's head. Romo darted some 30 yards backward, picking the ball up rather than simply falling on it, and juked his way all the way back past the line of scrimmage to convert a first down and keep the drive alive. Five plays later he scored on a 15-yard scramble and the Cowboys never looked back, advancing to 4-0 for the first time since 1995.
