DALLAS COWBOYS-CAROLINA PANTHERS (WEEK 8, 2006) AT 7 P.M. ET

Football Week in America continues tonight with quarterback Tony Romo’s first career start for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8 of the 2006 season.

Romo, who was signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2003, took his first career regular season snap in Week 6 of 2006 and made his first start two weeks later, on October 29, against Carolina. After falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter, Romo helped orchestrate a Dallas comeback with 35 unanswered points, including 25 in the fourth quarter, to lead the Cowboys to a 35-14 victory over the Panthers on Sunday Night Football. The come-from-behind win kickstarted Romo’s career, as he became the Cowboys starter for the remainder of his career through 2016.

Al Michaels and Hall of Fame coach John Madden called the game from Bank of America Stadium.
