The Dallas Cowboys have one of their most important offensive weapons back in Miles Austin.

Tony Romo will need to play within himself if the Cowboys want to win against the Patriots.

Tony Romo has been trying to be a hero in some games this season and his plays have ended up breaking down because he was trying to be a Brett Favre-esque gunslinger.

This type of play will be limited by having his No. 1 receiver back.

Miles Austin will keep Tony Romo honest and this is the best thing for the Cowboys.

Austin, also brings his athletic ability to the table, which will allow him to reel in some of those insane passes.

Austin, gives the deep threat that will allow them to stretch the poor Patriots' secondary.

With the Patriots being such a poor defense, defending the pass, having Austin back will allow them to break down and find holes in the Pats defense.

The Cowboys will have to hold their own in the gun battle.

Tony Romo is not the same quarterback that Tom Brady is, but he does have an offense that can put up points.

With Austin, another bullet has been added to the chamber.

Jason Witten will still be Tony Romo’s go to receiver for the match against the Patriots but to have Miles Austin’s production back is crucial for the Cowboys.

So far this season, Austin has 233 yards on 14 catches. For only playing in two games this season, he has been important to the offense.

Austin is averaging around 16 yards per reception and this is something that will allow the Cowboys to be very aggressive on offense.
