Tony Romo Throws Two Late Interceptions, Cowboys Blow 23 Point Halftime Lead to Packers to Lose

By Jason Lisk

Dallas had a 26-3 halftime lead over Green Bay. They settled for four field goals, but otherwise dominated the first half.

The second half was a different story. Dallas’ dreadful defense had one mirage of a half, but it did not hold up. The Packers scored five touchdowns on five second half possessions, and with Dallas clinging to the lead, Romo threw an apparent interception that was overturned on review, then two others.

The first came with Dallas up five, after Romo evaded the rush and came within inches of a big play for a touchdown.

Tramon Williams then sealed it with an amazing diving interception after the Packers took the lead. It was originally ruled incomplete, but was reversed. Costly, costly loss for Dallas. They could have assured that they would not be eliminated before the week 17 home game against Philadelphia for the NFC East. Now, they need to win next week (or get another Eagles’ loss).

Meanwhile, the Packers pulled off the miracle comeback to stay alive and get a week closer to Aaron Rodgers returning.
