The Dallas Cowboys led the Green Bay Packers for the entire game against a suspect Green Bay Packers team and looked to be in line to take full advantage of a surprising loss by the Philadelphia Eagles against the Minnesota Vikings. But despite leading big over the Packers, the Cowboys gave up the huge lead to eventually go down 37-36 with under two minutes left to play.
This means that game was in the hands of Tony Romo and he did what he does best late in tight games — threw a game ending interception which capped off a historic 24 point comeback. It was one of the worst comeback losses in Cowboys history but for fans who watched the game, they all saw it coming.
Romo can’t be blamed too much for the loss, as the Packers shredded the Dallas defense late in the game to take the lead back from the Cowboys. Things looked to be fully in the Cowboys favor when Dez Bryant made a ridiculous touchdown catch in the back of the end zone earlier in the game but the Cowoys still found a way to give up the lead and the game.
It’s December though, and Tony Romo is the quarterback so we really shouldn’t act all that surprised with what we just saw.
