Cowboys End Season In 27-13 Loss To Eagles But All Attention Is Focused Around Tony Romo

When are we ever going to stop talking about Tony Romo? The answer appears to be never.

Even when Dak Prescott has pieced together one of the greatest seasons of all time for any rookie quarterback, the media and Cowboys fans are still pulling for Tony Romo. Whether they just were excited to see him on the field for the first time or they wanted him back in for good, the Cowboys fans that made it out to Philadelphia cheered ecstatically when he made his first appearance against the Eagles.

Solely looking at the final score of a 27-13 Eagles victory does not tell the entire story of this game. The Cowboys, who already locked up the number one seed in the NFC side of the playoffs, did not play many of their key players that have made them so successful all year. Ezekiel Elliot did not even dress for the game while his rookie counterpart Dak Prescott was only under center for the first two drives of the game.

Romo would take over this Cowboys offence on the third drive of the game. He went 3-4 on his passing attempts for 29 yards. He capped of this drive with a beautiful 3 yard touchdown pass to Terrence Williams.

Does this mean anything for Romo? Not really. The Cowboys knew what they had in Romo before he made his first appearance this season in Philadelphia. Dallas has a great option in Romo if for some reason Prescott were to get injured in the playoffs.

Mark Sanchez took over after Romo’s short-lived success and continued his struggles as an NFL quarterback by throwing more interceptions than completions in the first half. With Tony Romo likely signing with another team next season, Sanchez has not made the best case for being the back up for Dak Prescott next season.

Sean Lee, one of the best linebackers in the NFL and leader of this Cowboy defense, was also inactive. Defensive linemen Tyrone Crawford, DeMarcus Lawrence, and Cedric Thornton also did not suit up for this game.

Next time we see the Cowboys in action will be Jan. 15 in the divisional round of the playoffs.
