Breaking Records: Tony Romo
PHILADELPHIA — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, in his 100th career start, visited the place where he’s been embarrassed in the past and instead made the Philadelphia Eagles fans boo its own team.
Romo earned his 59th career victory on Sunday afternoon in helping the Cowboys take over first-place in the NFC East with a 17-3 victory at Lincoln Financial Field.
When you look back at Romo’s 100 starts it gives you pause when you notice he’s thrown more passes than Joe Namath (27,747 to 27,663), has 189 career touchdowns and completed more passes through 100 games than Dan Marino, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner.
Tony Romo also has more passing yards than any other quarterback through 100 career starts in NFL history, according to a NFL on ESPN:
CRAZY: Tony Romo has the most passing yards in NFL HISTORY through 100 career starts (27,485).

However, Romo is judged on championships (that’s just how it is) and if the Cowboys are going to achieve that in 2013, defensive efforts like Sunday will need to be repeated.
