DALLAS (AP) - Tony Romo established a single-season team record by throwing his 30th touchdown pass in the Cowboys' 37-27 win over Green Bay. And Dallas receiver Terrell Owens tied a team mark with his 14th touchdown reception in the first half against the Packers last night.
Romo established the touchdown record when he hooked up with Patrick Crayton on a 3-yard scoring pass with 1:14 left in the first quarter. Danny White was the previous team leader with 29 in 1983.
Romo added two more scoring passes before halftime to boost his total to 32.
The last of Romo's first-half scoring tosses was a 10-yarder to Owens, which tied Frank Clarke's record originally set in 1962. Owens fell just shy of Clarke's accomplishment last season with 13 TD receptions.
This was also the 16th straight game Romo has thrown a touchdown pass, tying Troy Aikman's Cowboys record established over the 1993 and 1994 seasons.
