Vintage Tony Romo in last five games
He threw four interceptions in the game, bringing his season total to 13 with 10 of the 13 coming at home. The Cowboys fell to 3-4 with their only win in about a month coming at Carolina.
Since that game, however, Romo has been at the top of his game and among the best quarterbacks in the NFL statistically.
He has completed 138-of-200 passes for 1,587 yards. He has thrown 10 touchdown passes and been intercepted just twice.
Romo’s completion percentage (69%) is second during the last five games by a tenth of a point to Washington’s Robert Griffin III. His touchdown passes are third most. His yards are fourth most. His attempts are fourth most. His completions are second most. His 105.5 quarterback rating is fourth best.
“He’s one of the best competitors I’ve ever seen,” said receiver Dez Bryant who has also raised his level of play. “That puts drive in me – not only me, but a lot of the other guys, too. You’ve got a guy that does stuff like (complete passes after remarkable scrambles), just saying, ‘I won’t be denied, I’m going to complete this pass,’ it just puts the fight in everybody else.”
