Tony Romo gets his redemption vs. Giants
On Wednesday night, Romo made the same long, slow walk to the team bus with two bags slung over his shoulders, his head up and with a feeling of promise after the Cowboys beat the New York Giants, 24-17.
"I don't think you downplay it or up-play it," Romo said in a near empty locker room. "It's a big win obviously because we beat a divisional rival on the road and those are tough wins to come by, especially ones that are against the defending champs. But at the same time, if we want to get to where we want to go, you've got to put your head down and grind again and you just have to keep, win or loss, do it again.
"It makes the feeling better when you win, but it's going to be the same approach when I get back [Thursday] as if we had lost. You have to make it that way. It's the only way to get to where you want to be in this league."
