    LONDON - Boosted by Tony Romos return, Americas Team became an international success. Jacoby Brissett Jersey .Sidelined for one week because of a back injury, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback starred in the teams first regular-season game outside the United States, throwing three touchdown passes Sunday in a 31-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.We had to win this game, Romo said.Romo originally was hurt two weeks ago, fracturing two small bones in his back. He started in London to help the Cowboys (7-3) snap a two-game losing streak.Romo completed 20 of 27 passes for 246 yards against the Jaguars (1-9) and finished with a season-high passer rating of 138.8.The game was played at Wembley Stadium, the home of Englands national soccer team. It was the last of three regular-season NFL games this year in the British capital.The Cowboys have played outside the United States 10 times, but this was the first game that actually affected their record. With Dallas comfortably ahead, Romo sat out the final 6:42.Just sore. Anybody whos had anything broken before knows its uncomfortable at times, Romo said. A little banged up. A lot of guys are banged up. At the end of the day, no one actually cares once you step out onto the field.Romo threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten in the first quarter and then hit Dez Bryant for a pair of TDs in the second, the first from 35 yards and the second from 68.Didnt seem like he had any physical restrictions, moved around in the pocket, some subtle pocket movements to allow things to develop, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. He really looked like himself.DeMarco Murray ran for 100 yards on 19 carries and also had 31 yards receiving for Dallas. He had his record streak of eight straight 100-yard games to start a season snapped by the Arizona Cardinals last week.Bryant gained all of his 158 yards in the second quarter, and did it by breaking several tackles on each touchdown catch.Joseph Randle scored on a 40-yard run for Dallas in the second half on his first touch of the game.Denard Robinson scored two touchdowns for the Jaguars, running in from the 32 to give Jacksonville a 7-3 lead in the first quarter and then from the 1 late in the fourth. Blake Bortles, playing with a sore left wrist, was 22 of 37 for 290 yards with one interception.We kind of shot ourselves in the foot for two or three drives after that (first touchdown) and never really got it rolling again, Bortles said.The Cowboys took the lead when Dan Bailey kicked a 54-yard field goal, but Robinson briefly gave the Jaguars the lead with his touchdown run.Soon after, everything changed.Dallas and Romo again stalled on offence, but punt returner Ace Sanders let the ball drop through his arms for a fumble, recovered by Cowboys safety C.J. Spillman on the 6.Murray ran for 4 yards on the first play. After a pass to Bryant was broken up, Romo found Witten in the end zone.That was the play early on that really swung the tide, Garrett said of the fumble. We played pretty solid football after that.The Jaguars picked up two more points on a safety in the fourth quarter when Cowboys linebacker Kyle Wilber was flagged for holding in the end zone on a punt. But that did little to sway the outcome.We played terrible. We played the way that a college team should be playing, Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien said. We know for a fact were better than that. The team knows that.Romo led Dallas to six straight wins and a 6-1 start, but he injured his back in an overtime loss to the Washington Redskins. With Brandon Weeden starting for him last week against the Cardinals, the Cowboys lost again.From the start on Sunday, Romo looked good but didnt seem 100 per cent. He overthrew a wide open Witten on third down on the first series, and then threw the short pass to Witten for the first touchdown when he likely would have run it himself without the injury.Romo, who has thrown at least one TD pass in an NFL-record 37 consecutive road games, was also well protected by the offensive line, despite the Jaguars having one of the top pass rushes in the league.He missed one early to Witten, a touchdown opportunity for us, Garrett said of Romo. But really besides that I thought he played a really good ball game, really looked like he saw the field well.Weeden, who is 0-1 as a starting quarterback for the Cowboys after last weeks loss, came on for Romo in the final minutes and played until the end as the fans emptied the stadium early.NOTES: Romo is now 25-5 in November, by far the best of any of his months. ... The players on both teams wore poppies on their shirts and helmets to commemorate Remembrance Day in Britain, the equivalent of Memorial Day in the United States. The little red flower is worn by many British people every year to honour Britains war dead in the days leading up to Nov. 11, the day in 1918 when hostilities ceased at the end of World War I. ... The NFL will play three more regular-season games at Wembley Stadium next year. The Jaguars, who are now halfway through a four-year deal to play in London, will face the Buffalo Bills on Oct. 25, while the Miami Dolphins play the New York Jets on Oct. 4 and the Kansas City Chiefs meet the Detroit Lions on Nov. 1.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Christine Michael Sr Jersey . Signs of a turnaround have emerged in this series at Minnesota. Brian Roberts had three doubles and a triple for the first four-extra-base-hit game of his 14-year career, and the Yankees used their bullpen to preserve a 6-5 win over the Twins on Friday. Deyshawn Bond Jersey . Here are some of the best from Week One and some to watch in Week Two: TOP PERFORMERS Anthony Allen, RB, Saskatchewan (176 YDS, 2 TD, 30 touches vs. Hamilton) - Powerfully-built back burst onto the scene in his CFL debut, after a couple of years in the NFL, playing 21 games with the Baltimore Ravens. VANCOUVER -- The list of Toronto Maple Leaf injuries grew Saturday when centre Dave Bolland was taken to hospital for surgery after suffering a cut on his left leg. On Monday, the team announced Bolland had undergone successful surgery in Vancouver "to repair a a severed tendon on the outside of his left ankle." and will be out indefinitely. Bolland was hurt early in the second period of Torontos 4-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks when he was taken into the boards by Zack Kassian. Kassians skate appeared to hit the back of Bollands leg. The 27-year-old from Mimico, Ont., instantly crumpled to the ice. He was attempting to get back on his feet when Kassian scored the games second goal. Bolland had to be helped to the bench by teammates. After the game, Toronto coach Randy Carlyle could offer few details but compared Bollands injury to the one suffered last year by Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators. Karlsson missed 10 weeks when his Achilles tendon was partially sliced while being checked into the boards by Matt Cooke of the Pittsburgh Penguins. "He suffered a cut similar to the Karlsson injury," said Carlyle. "I dont know the severity or which tendon, but he did suffer a cut into that area." Mooments after Carlyle spoke to reporters Bolland hobbled out of the Toronto dressing room on crutches. Vontae Davis Jersey. . He was loaded onto a stretcher to be taken to hospital. "I havent really saw it," Carlyle said of the play. "I know Kassian went into finish his check. I cant comment other than that." Kassian said it was a clean hit. "I havent seen it again, or really looked," he said. "I just went in to finish my hit. I am not sure what even happened to him. "I went in there hard to finish my hit, I dont know what happened but it was a clean hit. I know it was clean so no talking about that." The Leafs are already without top centre Tyler Bozak and defenceman Mark Fraser. Goaltender James Reimer said Bollands injury will hurt the team. "Losing a guy like that, hes been real solid for us, probably one of our best players for the last couple of games," said Reimer, who faced 47 shots in the loss. "Its real tough to lose him but having said that, as a team we have to find a way to rally around him and play well for him and try to win one for him." Bolland came to the Leafs this year in a trade from Chicago. In 15 games he has six goals and four assists. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
