IRVING, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo now has the most yards passing in the first 100 starts of any quarterback in the Super Bowl era — ahead of Kurt Warner, Dan Marino and Peyton Manning.

The Dallas quarterback takes that impressive stat into Sunday's game against Detroit, which beat the Cowboys two years ago with a huge rally fueled by the downside of Romo's resume — critical turnovers.

Offensive coordinator Bill Callahan, Romo's new play-calling partner, says he hasn't "spent a minute" looking at video from that 34-30 loss to the Lions.

Callahan showed his faith last week by riding Romo's arm to a touchdown in a 17-3 win over Philadelphia right after an interception that could have had consequences similar to the 2011 Detroit game.
