Five-star answer: Tony Romo picked but wins

Five-star question: Will Tony Romo, who has not thrown an interception in his last 64 passes, keep his streak alive against Buffalo?

The Bills lead the NFL with 15 interceptions with safety George Wilson leading the way with four. He is one of eight players with at least one pick on the Buffalo roster.

New England’s Tom Brady was intercepted four times by Buffalo. Philadelphia’s Michael Vick was picked four times by the Bills. The only quarterback to avoid throwing an interception against the Bills this year is Eli Manning of the New York Giants.

So Romo enters this over-the-hump game needing to play his best and enters with 64 straight throws without a pick. He’s done a nice job lately protecting the ball but last week he took some chances against Seattle.

While I believe Romo’s confidence is returning – even if he says he never lost it – I think you’ll see him get intercepted Sunday, but that doesn’t mean the Cowboys will lose the game. Heck, the last time Romo went against Buffalo he threw five picks but they still won the game in 2007 thanks to Nick Folk’s right leg.

Buffalo has the 25th-ranked pass defense. The way to beat the Bills is through the air, even if the New York Jets went the ground-and-pound route last week and even if Miles Austin is out because of a hamstring injury.

So, yes, Romo will get picked but he’ll also throw three touchdown passes to inch the Cowboys over .500 on the year.
