Tony Romo aims to bounce back

10/12/2012

IRVING, Texas -- Like always, all eyes will be on Tony Romo when the Dallas Cowboys face the Ravens on Sunday in Baltimore.

For the past 11 days, Romo has had to stew over his career-high-tying five-interception performance against Chicago thanks to the Cowboys' bye week, and he has three more days until kickoff at M&T Bank Stadium to purge those thoughts from his mind.

"I wish we had games every three or four days," Romo said, "but I think some of the big boys enjoy the time off."

A year ago, Romo had to live through the same kind of break after a poor performance leading into the bye.

Against Detroit, he threw three second-half interceptions -- two were returned for Lions touchdowns -- as the Cowboys coughed up a 27-3 lead to lose 34-30 at Cowboys Stadium. Two weeks later at one of the NFL's toughest venues to play, New England's Gillette Stadium, he threw for 317 yards while completing 27 of 41 passes with a touchdown and an interception in a 20-16 loss to the Patriots.

After last year's loss to the Lions and this year's loss to the Bears, Romo made a similar pledge to do his job and stop trying to do too much.

How does he plan to implement the new/old philosophy this time?
