ARLINGTON, Texas — Tony Romo threw the pass, then didn’t have a chance. Linebacker Michael Boley was coming right at him, unblocked and going full speed.

The hit was so hard that when Romo landed on his left shoulder, Boley heard him “let out a little scream.” All Romo remembers was how much trouble he had breathing.  Romo broke his left collarbone on the play, turning a promising start in Monday night’s game against the New York Giants into yet another loss. The Cowboys went through a funk after losing their quarterback, and Eli Manning took advantage, powering New York from a 13-point deficit to a 41-35 victory that put the Giants a full game ahead of the NFC East and tied for the most wins in the conference.Manning led New York (5-2) on five straight scoring drives over the middle two quarters, posting 31 points.    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was told Romo would miss about six to eight weeks. More tests that are scheduled for Tuesday should help set a timetable. But it might not matter much. Dallas is 1-5, so there might not be any reason to rush back. The 1970 Bengals are the only 1-5 team to make the playoffs.
