Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 18 vs DET (19 / 31 / 293 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / -2 / 0 rush)

The Detroit pass rush had a great impact on Tony Romo and the Dallas passing game, especially in the first half. The Cowboys overcame a 14-0 first quarter deficit, despite the Lions' consistent pressure. As a result of the pressure, Romo took big hits and missed his targets regularly. Two off-target throws to Cole Beasley contributed to early punts. Later in the first half, Detroit instantly got pressure on Romo in the pocket, forcing a fumble, but the ball that lay on the turf for seemingly an eternity, was recovered by Dallas. A long catch-and-run to Terrance Williams salvaged an otherwise forgettable offensive first half for Tony Romo. After logging a red zone sack on third down and additional two sacks that led to a long field goal on another drive, the game was on the line for the Dallas offense. Romo had the ball with eight minutes remaining and down three points. Two critical throws highlighted the drive for Romo and the passing game. The first converted fourth down on an option route to Jason Witten, a combination with Tony Romo that has keyed scoring drives for nearly a decade. On the same drive with two minutes to play, Romo bought time in the pocket and ultimately found Terrance Williams in the back of the end zone for the ultimate game-winning touchdown on third down. With a Dallas defensive stop to end the game, Romo fueled Dallas' home playoff win, coming back from an early 14-point deficit.

2014 Week 19 vs GB (15 / 19 / 191 / 2 / 0 pass, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

While the Cowboys late-season story ended the same in 2014, Tony Romo did not log a late-game interception to contribute to the loss. In Green Bay, Romo bested a less-than-100% Aaron Rodgers for most of the game. Romo worked off the expected run-heavy attack in the first half and logged accurate throws to Terrance Williams on a long catch-and-run touchdown and to Jason Witten to convert a crucial third-and-long. While Dallas had a 14-10 halftime edge, a clunky sequence on the final drive of the second quarter took at least three points off the board. Romo fumbled the third down snap, and then a false start penalty spurred a missed field goal. In the second half, Romo took a huge hit on a broken play, but found Jason Witten, through a Dez Bryant tip, for a long gain. Pressure mounted as Romo took back-to-back sacks to stall a later drive and took a sandwich-style collision from two defenders in the mid-fourth quarter. That hit was unnecessary as Romo had ample opportunity to throw the ball away outside the pocket. With the game on the line, it was Tony Romo and not DeMarco Murray with the ball in his hands as Dallas faced a fourth-and-two inside Packers territory. Romo made an accurate throw to Dez Bryant down the sidelines, which Bryant hauled in at its highest point. Bryant lost the ball stretching for the end zone. After being ruled a catch on the field, it was reversed upon replay essentially ending the game and Dallas' season.
