Romo, Again, Comes Up Small in Big Games

Cowboys haters love to point out that Tony Romo doesn't perform well on the big stage. His signature moment in this regard was the fumbled hold on a field goal attempt that would have beaten the Seattle Seahawks in the 2006 playoffs. For all the wins and successes he has had as a young quarterback, he has nothing to show for it.

So it should surprise no one that, as I type this, the Cowboys are down 34-3 to the Philadelphia Eagles. The latest score came off a Romo fumble that was returned by Chris Clemons 73 yards for a touchdown.

Earlier in the game, the Cowboys were driving towards midfield when Romo threw an interception. Philadelphia would capitalize on the turnover by scoring a touchdown and building a 24-3 lead.

This is a virtual playoff game as the winner will face Minnesota next week in the wild card round of the playoffs.

As I type this, Romo is 13-for-24 for 91 yards with no touchdowns and two turnovers.

UPDATE: Thanks to a Marion Barber fumble, the Eagles now lead 41-3

UPDATE II: Romo turns the ball over for the third time. He has the ball stripped as he scrambled for a first down.
