Dallas Cowboy Terrell Owens admitted what his teammates couldn't a month ago — at least publicly: The Cowboys were springing leaks long before Tony Romo broke his pinkie and their Super Bowl hopes started sinking.
Owens said doubt crept in as early as the first month of the season, when the Cowboys (now 5-4) lost their first game against Washington.
The Cowboys went 1-2 without Romo after he injured his throwing hand during the first play of overtime in an Oct. 12 loss to Arizona.
But Dallas was 1-2 in the last three games with Romo, too.
The Redskins rematch — on Nov. 16 — could be the first time on the field together for Romo, Owens, recently acquired receiver Roy Williams, tight end Jason Witten, running back Marion Barber and budding star Felix Jones.
Witten is trying to play through a broken rib from the Tampa Bay game. Jones is expected to return after missing the same amount of time as Romo with a hamstring injury.
