Tony Romo throws for franchise-record 506 yards, 5 TDs (and a costly INT)

For the Cowboys to upset the Broncos, who entered today's game with a 15-game regular-season winning streak, you knew it would have required a big offensive day from the Cowboys.

Despite scoring 48 points, it was a costly interception thrown by Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in the final two minutes that eventually led to the game-winning field goal by Matt Prater as time expired.

Although many will remember his last throw of the game, Romo was brilliant before that as he set the Cowboys' franchise record for most passing yards in a game with 506.

Romo completed 25 of 36 pass attempts for 506 yards, five touchdowns and one interception.

According to Elias (via ESPN Stats & Info), Romo is one of only five quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for 500-plus yards and five-plus touchdowns. The other four are Norm Van Brocklin, Y.A. Tittle, Matthew Stafford and Matt Schaub.

Three Cowboys pass-catchers finished with more than 100 yards: Terrance Williams (151), Dez Bryant (141) and Jason Witten (121). All three of those players plus Cole Beasley caught a touchdown pass today.

On the season, Romo has completed 135 of 188 pass attempts (71.8 percent) for 1,523 yards, 13 touchdowns and two touchdowns.

For the Broncos, Peyton Manning threw for 414 yards, four touchdowns and his first interception of the season. He also rushed for a touchdown. On the year, he has 20 touchdown passes and one interception.

Next week, the Cowboys face the Redskins, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season.
