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?
