Bridgewater perfect for Vikings, Romo solid for Cowboys

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes even as Dez Bryant again sat out for the Dallas Cowboys, who lost 28-14 to the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday night.

Romo, who completed one pass for minus-1 yard in his only series while Dallas lost its first two preseason games, was 5 of 8 for 88 yards in his five series. Both TDs were in the second quarter, with a 60-yard catch-and-run by Terrance Williams.

Dallas led 14-10 when Romo threw his final pass, an 8-yard TD to Lucky Whitehead.

Teddy Bridgewater completed all seven of his passes for 76 yards and finally found a connection with his new receiver. Mike Wallace had three catches for 50 yards, including a 39-yard grab.

Cordarrelle Patterson had a 107-yard kickoff return for Minnesota.
