Tony Romo has excelled vs. Tampa 2 defenses
|Coop and Nate discuss the Monday Night Football matchup between the Cowboys and Bears. |
Efficient does not describe how the Cowboys have played so far in 2012, but in the past against Tampa 2 defenses, Tony Romo has thrived.
He has an 8-3 mark against teams that had been predominantly Tampa 2 teams over the years since he’s been the starter with 24 touchdown passes and seven interceptions. He has completed 73 percent of his passes (272 or 372) for 3,241 yards and been sacked 18 times.
In two games against the Bears, Romo is 1-1 with three touchdowns and three interceptions.
Tampa 2 teams generally take away the deep throws outside to the wide receivers, preferring to give up the underneath throws. In six of the 11 games against Tampa 2 defenses, Romo has thrown for more than 300 yards.
“They’re good,” Romo said of the Bears. “They’re going to stop you. You have to understand that and go out and execute on each play.”
