"It seemed like everyone had a say in it," Smith said. "Those were all big plays. In order to get those, you have to have pressure. Romo is hard to get down. He kept a lot of plays alive for them."

In addition to his five interceptions, Romo completed 31 of 43 passes for 307 yards with one touchdown and a 60.1 passer rating before being benched late in favor of Kyle Orton.
"It was fun," Melton said. "I got about 30-something tickets spread out everywhere. It was a great showing for the whole team and I'm glad we're leaving here with a win."
