Tony Romo's picks remain the same

October, 4, 2012
IRVING, Texas -- Officially, Tony Romo’s five-interception game will remain a five-interception game.

ESPN NFL insider Chris Mortensen comments on the national perception of the Dallas Cowboys.

Listen Listen
Elias did not change the official statistician’s call from Monday night of Chicago linebacker Lance Briggs' 74-yard interception return to a 74-yard fumble return.

Replays appeared to show Bears defensive linemen Henry Melton poked the ball free as Romo climbed the pocket and was looking to flip the ball forward to Jason Witten, but the ruling at the time stands, to use the replay vernacular.

Monday's was the second five-interception game of Romo’s career. He was also picked off five times on Oct. 8, 2007, at Buffalo, but the Cowboys managed to win that game, 25-24. Romo and Eddie LeBaron are the only two quarterbacks in team history with two five-pick games.
