ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has surpassed 25,000 yards passing.

Romo broke that mark with a 24-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant late in the third quarter of Sunday's home game against Pittsburgh.

That TD pass made Romo the 64th NFL player to go over the 25,000-yard mark.

It was his second TD pass of the game, and the 171st of his career, already the Cowboys team record. He is still second in franchise history for yards behind Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, who threw for 32,942 yards and won three Super Bowls.
