The Dallas Cowboys Lose a Shoot Out 51-48 to the Denver Broncos on Sunday Afternoon
The only bad part of his day was that his lone interception came at the most inopportune time, deep in his own territory with just over two minutes remaining in the game and the score tied at 48-48. Peyton Manning would eventually lead the Broncos on a drive that would end in a field goal by Matt Prater (Pictured on the left) to seal the game for Denver with a final of 51-48.
For Tony Romo, he would end up going 25-36 for 506 yards to go along with those five touchdowns. He was able to hit a multitude of targets (eight different receivers caught a pass) including rookie wide receiver Terrance Williams who also had a career day with his four catches for 152 yards and a touchdown. That one interception will haunt Romo though as he knows that type of play basically sums his reputation in the NFL. That reputation being, “he can’t get it done with the game on the line.”
The loss drops Jason Garrett and the Cowboys to 2-3 on the year, and combined with an Philadelphia Eagles win Sunday are now tied for first in the NFC East. They will need to get things turned around though if they want to remain atop the division as they have division rivals coming to town next Sunday. That rival is the 1-3 Washington Redskins who are coming off a bye week. Kickoff for that game is set for prime-time at 7:30pm next Sunday and can be seen on NBC.
