    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said Thursday he’s in favor of running the football more and knows it’s a must if the team is going to accomplish its goals this season. “I’m just the quarterback,” Romo said. You just can't overcome that stuff in the red zone. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was sharp in his first live action of the preseason Friday night at Oakland. “I think we’ve had a great training camp and I think the guys have worked real hard," Romo said, "and it’s just going to be good to go out there and hit someone new.” Tony Romo, who didn’t play in the Hall of Fame Game, couldn’t get the Cowboys into the end zone after Jason Hatcher recovered Flynn’s fumble thanks to a holding penalty and a sack by Raiders rookie Sio Moore, but he completed four passes on his second and final drive of the game. The Cowboys defense set up the offense by forcing a turnover, but penalties, a hold on Jason Witten , a deflection on a screen pass and a sack forced the Cowboys into long down and distance. Flynn’s second drive was more successful, though, as he threw for a pair of first downs and could have had another if not for Lee hitting Rod Streater just as the ball arrived on another third down play.
