Who is this man, and what has he done with the real Tony Romo?

The star quarterback is in the midst of a historic performance against the Denver Broncos, via SportsCenter.

Romo for 506 yards and five touchdowns. It was an incredible performance, with Romo thoroughly outplaying Peyton Manning on the day.

This game continues what has been one of the best seasons of his career. He's been too good for too many weeks to chalk it up to coincidence. Romo is throwing the ball better and making much better decisions.

It's great for the Cowboys, and it's great for your fantasy team. Before, you would put Romo in your fantasy lineup with that worry that he was going to quite literally throw away points.

However, that fear seems to be unsubstantiated now. He looks to have turned a corner and gotten rid of the dumb plays that have plagued his career.

Even with that interception at the end of the game, this is a different Tony Romo you're seeing.
