Tony Romo added another chapter to his legacy as a choker by throwing two interceptions in the final three minutes of the Dallas Cowboys’ 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Yes, Dallas blew a 26-3 halftime lead and 36-24 lead with under eight minutes to go in the game … and they blew it to a team that has Matt Flynn at quarterback. In fact, the Cowboys allowed Flynn to throw for 299 yards and 4 touchdowns!
The Packers completed the comeback with a lot of help from Romo, who was picked off in Dallas’ final two possessions of the game.
For his first interception, Romo threw behind Miles Austin, who was wide open, and Sam Shields intercepted his pass around midfield with 2:48 left in the game.
Green Bay took the ball and drove for the go-ahead touchdown.
Despite the touchdown, Dallas appeared to have a good chance to come back and win the game. They had the ball with 1:31 left and only needed a field goal to regain the lead. But Romo was intercepted on the second play of the drive.
Romo threw a pass for Cole Beasley, who broke off his route to sit down in the middle of a zone. Romo expected him to keep going and the ball went into the hands of Tramon Williams, who made a great catch.
Here’s a look at the play:
Jason Garrett said after the game that a run was called on this play and that Romo checked into a pass.
