ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Tony Romo guided touchdown drives on his first four possessions, throwing for the score on three of them, and Terence Newman returned one of his two interceptions for a touchdown, leading the Dallas Cowboys to a 44-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

The Cowboys (5-4) have won consecutive games and could be at the start of a big surge. Their next three foes went into this weekend a combined 6-18.

Romo completed his first 13 passes, including TD strikes of 34 yards to Dez Bryant and of 58 and 5 yards to Laurent Robinson. He finished 23 of 26, setting the franchise record for single-game accuracy by hitting 88.5 percent of his passes.

The 37-point margin of victory was the biggest for Dallas since Oct. 22, 2000. The Cowboys hadn't scored this many points since Sept. 9, 2007. Buffalo (5-4) lost its second straight.
