Tony Romo threw it all away in Dallas' season-ending loss to the Redskins in Week 17, completing 20-of-37 passes for 218 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.
Hoping to turn a new leaf, the Cowboys were instead treated to ghosts of Romo's past. Romo capped off Dallas' opening drive with a pick that came as a result of a miscommunication with Kevin Ogletree. His second INT was all on him, however, as he badly under-threw a deep sideline route just seven minutes later. As usual, though, Romo's final pick was his most devastating, as he never saw LB Rob Jackson on an attempted screen pass to DeMarco Murray with 3:00 remaining. The pick gave Romo five in two games against the Redskins this season, and 19 on the year. That ties a career worst. The Cowboys are now 1-6 all time in win-or-go-home games started by Romo. The picks will likely overshadow Romo's career-high 4,903 passing yards. Maybe they should, but we say they shouldn't. 33 in April, Romo is entering the final year of his contract.
