Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo hopes that the team can cut down the number of penalties that they concede during their next pre-season game.

Tony Romo has said that penalties cost the Dallas Cowboys in their pre-season loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Cole Beasley and Joseph Randle both scored touchdowns for the NFC East side during the 19-17 defeat.

The quarterback told the team's official website: "It was good. We did what we've been doing in training camp and moved the ball real well. We were holding back on a lot of our stuff, red zone stuff and some other things.

"We would have liked to have scored a touchdown [during Romo's drives], but we got hurt by penalties more than anything, and that aspect of it is just going to hurt you no matter what.

"So we have to avoid that [and] stress that this week, and we're going to make sure that stops."

The Cowboys play the Arizona Cardinals in their next pre-season game.
