Texas Stadium, Irving, TX
IRVING, Texas -- Three drives, three scores. The way the Dallas Cowboys were treating the winless Cincinnati Bengals, it looked as if they'd have all afternoon to work out their kinks, especially whatever's going on between Tony Romo and Terrell Owens.But these Cowboys don't do things the easy way.
Fast Facts• The Cowboys improved to 6-4 all-time vs. the Bengals and Tony Romo ran his record to 6-1 against the AFC for his career. • Dallas improved to 16-2 when Romo's passer rating is 100 or more. Terrell Owens notched a 57-yard touchdown reception, his 136th career score, tying Marshall Faulk for fourth place on the all-time NFL list. • The Bengals fell to 0-5 for the first time since 2002 (started 0-7 that season).
-- ESPN research
Owens' first catch was the 900th of his career. He's the eighth receiver to do so, the third-fastest (178 games). ... Chad Ocho Cinco had only three catches for 43 yards and didn't score, so he didn't "kiss the star" in the end zone as he'd hoped. ... Ellis, a former defensive end, had only two interceptions in his previous 150 games.
