Demarco Murray TD-saving tackle for Dallas Cowboys after Tony Romo interception (GIF)


So far, the opening Sunday Night Football game between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys has been marred by turnovers. Actually, the first play from scrimmage was a turnover–an interception thrown by Giants QB Eli Manning.

But, let’s face it, a primetime game featuring Tony Romo is never complete without one of his obligatory interceptions. And, in the first half he did not disappoint.

Romo fired a pick in the second quarter to Giants defensive back Ryan Mundy. There was an obvious communication error between Romo and his intended target, Dez Bryant.

As Mundy blazed his way through the Cowboys offense, it seemed as if the worst-case scenario was about to happen. Mundy was about to take the ball right into the Dallas end zone for six points. And he almost did, if not for this touchdown-saving tackle by Cowboys running back, Demarco Murray:

Many of these have ended badly for Romo throughout his career. I hope that Murray can get an extra dinner this week from his quarterback for his efforts.
