The Cowboys don’t return home until September 23, when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A friend visiting Dallas asked whether it was worth taking a look at Cowboys Stadium.

As a venue to watch a game, it certainly is. Some have written that the stadium ranks has high as second among NFL stadiums. Other have written about Cowboys Stadium compared to other stadiums around the world.

Anyway, during a week with an away game, consider visiting the stadium and taking a tour. Cost is about $30, which is a bit high, but you get to visit field, locker rooms, and so forth. Worth the trip, especially if you’re a Cowboys fans.

The Cowboys rank pretty high in various power rankings, which Dallas Morning News reporter Scott Bell has summarized. The high-end ranking has the Cowboys at #6 (Pete Prisco, CBS), while the low-end ranking (Ashley Fox, ESPN) has the Cowboys at #13.

Tony Romo TD Watch

Tony Romo is likely to surpass Troy Aikman in career touchdown passes.

I addressed this briefly before, but Tony Romo is going to wind up owning several team passing records by the time he is finished. The next major mark in his reach is the career record for most TD passes.

In only 78 career starts, Romo has 152 TD passes. That is one behind Roger Staubach and three behind Danny White. Troy Aikman leads the category with 165.

Of course, each of those QBs played in many more games than Romo—165 for Aikman, 166 for White, and 131 for Staubach.

But, of course, Romo played in different era with very different rules than those three.

Below is a complete list of the 45 players who have thrown at least one touchdown pass.
