IRVING, Texas (AP) -

Tony Romo had a Peyton Manning comparison dropped on him by his owner in the offseason.
    
Jerry Jones was talking about meeting rooms and film rooms when he said the Dallas quarterback would be putting in "Peyton Manning-type time" after he signed the richest contract in franchise history.
    
It's a good thing Jones didn't say anything about Peyton Manning-type statistics. So far this year, nobody compares.
    
Manning has the Denver Broncos at 4-0 with 16 touchdowns and no interceptions heading into his first game at the Cowboys' $1.2 billion stadium Sunday.
 
Romo has just one interception, but his offense has been hit-or-miss in a 2-2 start.
