Giants players surprised Tony Romo didn't make a mistake in fourth quarter

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.”
