The Dallas Cowboys raced out to a big lead but managed to let the New York Giants claw their way back and tie the game. With 4:45 left in the game Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo got the ball back. Romo led the Cowboys 64 yards down the field in 14 plays. Romo completed 6 of 9 passes for 67 yards.

The fourth quarter is when Romo notoriously melts down, but he didn’t and was rather efficient leading them into field goal range. Then Dan Bailey kicked a field goal to win the game as time expired. That drive left the Giants baffled, and they were surprised he didn’t make a mistake.

“Tony Romo is a great quarterback,” safety Antrel Rolle said, NY Daily News. “They rely on him for a reason. … People look at him and say, you know, Tony is going to screw something up in the fourth quarter. But Tony is a great quarterback. You got to take your hat off. He made the plays when he needed to make them.”

“He’s a good quarterback,” Pierre-Paul said. “He normally makes mistakes, but a game like this when you really need it, you don’t know what’s going to happen. He drove the ball on us. That last drive, we couldn’t get him off the field.”

    Probably the biggest mistake made in that game was thinking a quarterback as good as Romo was going to give them the ballgame by making a mistake. If the Giants were depending on that happening they already had doubts about their own ability to control the outcome.

    So now Pierre-Paul is eating crow and saying all these nice things about Romo when just a few days ago he was spouting off to the media about how he was going to draw blood on the entire team. What a comedown for a player to let his abilities get outgunned by his runny mouth.Personally, I wish the Giants the worst for the rest of this season and it serves them right.

    “The fourth quarter is when Romo notoriously melts down..” ….Really?? That’s pretty funny with Tony Romo being the highest rated QB “for fourth quarters” since 2000… ;) And Pierre-Paul is a retard for not knowing this…Where did he get his degree from?? A cracker jack box?? Seriously. There is no way IN HELL you any of you guys can ever convince me that he earned his degree on his own.
