Drive of the Game: Tony Romo's third INT
LANDOVER, Md. -- It’s difficult to pick the Drive of the Game from Sunday’s 28-18 loss to Washington.
Do you pick the Cowboys’ first drive that came after a 28-yard punt return by Dwayne Harris put the ball at the Washington 27?
Three plays later, Tony Romo suffered his first of three interceptions when Richard Crawford corralled an errant throw to Kevin Ogletree. The Cowboys missed a chance of at least taking a 3-0 lead. The Cowboys were able to overcome Romo’s first two interceptions.
That’s why the Cowboys’ final real possession of the game gets the call here. Trailing 21-18 with 3:33 to play, the Cowboys had momentum on their side.
On first down from the Dallas 29, Washington blitzed Romo up the middle, forcing a back-foot throw to running back DeMarco Murray in the flat. Outside linebacker Rob Jackson made an athletic, leaping pick of Romo’s throw that eventually led to Alfred Morris’ third touchdown of the game.
“He made a good play and I made a poor decision,” said Romo, who tied his career high with his 19th interception. “It cost us there.”
