The Dallas Cowboys jumped out to a 26-3 lead entering halftime, after a strong running game led them to a dominant first-half over the Green Bay Packers. Unfortunately for the Cowboys and their fans, it was time for an epic collapse in the second half as they gave the game to the Packers, 37-36.
Tony Romo threw two interceptions in the final quarter, which immediately charges the “Romo isn’t clutch” narrative. However, he is not the one to blame for the team’s loss.
The Dallas defense returned to embarrassing form and could not get a stop. In fact, the Green Bay offense was able to score on every single second half possession. It was a heart-breaking loss by Dallas and happens to be the latest example to the Cowboys December woes.
On top of the horrendous defensive play, the Cowboys play-calling was a disaster.
Despite having plenty of success in the running game throughout the first two quarters, Dallas abandoned the run and watched their lead slip away. It was an all-around choke job, but to blame this loss solely on Romo is not fair.
For the Packers, they can now hope that Aaron Rodgers will return to the lineup next weekend and allow them to close in on the playoffs.
