VIDEO: Miles Austin Returns With A Touchdown In Cowboys Game Vs. Giants

Miles Austin hadn't played for the Dallas Cowboys since a Nov. 6 game against the Seattle Seahawks due to a hamstring injury. He wasted no time getting back to his touchdown-scoring ways, however, as his catch from Tony Romo put the Cowboys up 27-22 in the fourth quarter of their game on Sunday Night Football.

The New York Giants gave up the third 80-plus yard drive of the game to the Cowboys, ending in Austin's touchdown catch, but it was set up by another long bomb from Romo to fellow wide receiver Laurent Robinson.

Robinson was essentially Austin's replacement in the Cowboys offense while the latter dealt with his hamstring injury so it was unclear exactly how they'd coincide upon Austin's return. It doesn't seem to be a problem thus far as both have caught touchdowns on Sunday night. Even though Robinson has far more yards (137 to 18), both have been targeted five times by Romo.
