OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - With Terrell Owens far away in Buffalo, Tony Romo happily spread the ball around.

Romo threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to favorite target Jason Witten to cap a brief but successful night before the Oakland Raiders rallied for a 31-10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday in the exhibition opener for both teams.

Bruce Gradkowski engineered three touchdown drives against mostly backups on Dallas' defense, throwing a 3-yard touchdown pass to Tony Stewart in the second quarter. Louis Rankin and Gary Russell added short TD runs in the third quarter, long after Romo's night was done.
