Tony Romo Touchdown Pass on 4th Down Saves the Season for Dallas

By Jason Lisk

Dallas had their playoff lives on the line in the fourth quarter at Washington, trailing by nine points. Dallas got a field goal to get within 6 points, and then Tony Romo, playing with a leg injury, hit a deep pass to a wide open Terrance Williams when the defender slipped. That set up a goal line sequence that saw Dallas appear to squander the opportunity when DeMarco Murray was tackled for a huge loss on 3rd down from the 1.

Romo kept it alive on fourth down, scrambled, and hit Murray near the right pylon. Dallas leads 24-23. They hold on, and no matter what Philadelphia does, you will be watching Dallas and the Eagles for the NFC East next week.
