Romo suffered a broken clavicle in Week at Philadelphia and will be out for at least 6-8 weeks.

Week 4: at New Orleans Saints

All QB vs NO

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Though the Cowboys didn't win the game last week, Brandon Weeden consistently got the team into goal-line situations (the Cowboys punched in four rushing scores last weekend) with 22/26 for 232 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown. Lance Dunbar snarfed up 10 dump-off passes for 100 yards receiving, while Jason Witten (eight for 6/65/0) and Cole Beasley (four for 4/49/0) also helped out with the dink-and-dunk attack. Terrance Williams disappointed fantasy owners with no receptions in the lead receiver role with Dez Bryant sidelined due to his foot injury. The Saints' D is one of the worst units, all-around, in the NFL. Cam Newton blew this unit up with 20/31 for 318 passing yards yielding two TDs and zero interceptions last weekend - to date, the Saints are ranked 22nd in the NFL allowing an average of 271.0 net passing yards per game, with six passing scores given out over three games, and zero interceptions generated. Enough said. Advantage, Dallas.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 2 vs PHI (18 / 27 / 195 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)

The Cowboys offense moved the ball well with Tony Romo under center against Philadelphia. The offensive line protected Romo well early in the game. Penalties and stalling for field goals kept the game within reach as Dallas dominated with 23 minutes of time of possession in the first half. Romo moved the offense straight down the field on two occasions as Romo was accurate from the pocket. His highlight throw came on a deep sideline route to Lance Dunbar, perfectly thrown over the running back's outside shoulder. In the mid-third quarter, the Eagles' pocket pressure on Romo reached its climax, forcing a fumble and Romo sustaining a fractured left clavicle on the play. Early reports are Romo will miss a majority of the regular season as a result, a similar timeline to Dez Bryant returning from his foot surgery.

2015 Week 1 vs NYG (36 / 45 / 356 / 3 / 2 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Romo was well protected throughout the season-opening tilt against the Giants. The Dallas offensive line stoned the depleted New York defensive line, at times allowing Romo five or more seconds to survey the field for secondary options. Romo was in game-manager mode, rarely venturing downfield with pass attempts. Instead, Romo stays ahead of the sticks and was on-target on underneath routes. The opening drive of the game, a 10-minute jaunt down to the Giants goal line, stalled as Romo uncharacteristically airmailed Dez Bryant on the third down jump ball. Despite Tony Romo's efforts to control the game and the clock, two Terrance Williams' drops plus a Cole Beasley fumble derailed Dallas' plans en route to a first half deficit. Romo's interception came on a tipped pass off Jason Witten's hands. Through all the errors, empty yards, and squandered drives, Romo had the ball with 89 seconds remaining down by six points. With no timeouts and Dez Bryant out of the lineup with a foot injury, Romo led the offense straight down the field, culminating in a stick touchdown throw to Jason Witten at the goal line for the ultimate game-winning touchdown. The short-range approach to the passing game is likely to continue with Dez Bryant out of the lineup.

Cowboys | Tony Romo to miss eight to 10 weeks (Sun Sep 20, 09:46 PM) - Updating a previous report, the Dallas Cowboys expect QB Tony Romo (shoulder) to be sidelined at least eight to 10 weeks due to the broken left clavicle he suffered in the Week 2 win against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Our View: As expected. The Cowboys should get Romo and Dez Bryant back around the same time, and the NFC East is so weak that they can still win it, especially with a 2-0 start with two wins in the division.
