The Dallas Cowboys are up early on the Washington Redskins, with a 7-3 lead. Quarterback Tony Romo is trying to help lead the Cowboys to a bounce back victory after an emotional and heartbreaking loss to the Denver Broncos last week. The game ended when Tony Romo threw an interception to give the ball to the Broncos in field goal range, simply needing to kick and college 3 points and the win.
Romo received the blame for that 51-48 loss because of that interception despite Cowboys defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin sayinghis defense was responsible for the loss. That plea was ignored by some NFL fans that continued to blame Tony Romo.
Romo started the game completing 7 of 8 passes in the first quarter and was looking good, like he was in the same 506 yard, 5 touchdown form from last week.
Unfortunately, those hopes might have just taken a hit. Early in the second quarter Romo threw a pass at Cole Beasley that was tipped by a Redskins defender. As the ball floated in the air you could see Redskins linebacker Rob Jackson just sitting there waiting.
I don’t know that he should necessarily be blamed for this interception. Tip drill interceptions aren’t really the quarterbacks fault.
