Tony Romo's turnaround

IRVING, Texas – Tony Romo’s turnaround from a slow start to the season is not difficult to figure out.

In his first 283 passes on the season, Romo was intercepted 13 times.

In his last 275 throws he has been intercepted three times and one was a desperation heave in the first half against Cincinnati that was effectively a punt.

In his last 135 passes that has been Romo’s only interception. The previous pick came with 2:57 left in the third quarter against Washington when London Fletcher intercepted a throw to Cole Beasley.

“Tony has the ball in his hands every play so being a great decision maker at the quarterback position is really, really important,” coach Jason Garrett said. “I think what Tony has done a job of is he’s made a lot of plays too. It’s not like he plays scared. He makes a ton of plays. He’s just not making very many bad plays. He’s done a great job with the football. Both his decision making, his care of the football gas been really good. It certainly has to continue. It’s really an important part of winning football in this league.”
