He has made far too many throws, delivered too many improbable escapes and even more touchdown passes for a 16-10 win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sept. 23, 2012, to become such a long-lasting memory.
For only the second time in his past 35 games in which he started and finished, Romo did not throw a touchdown pass. He completed 25 of 39 passes for 283 yards. He was intercepted once. He had a passer rating of 75.1.
But those figures do not tell the story of how tough Romo played Sunday.
