Tony Romo takes the blame

By Todd Archer



EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Tony Romo took the blame for the critical interception by Darrelle Revis that set up the game-winning field goal by Nick Folk with 27 seconds left to play.

Romo was looking for Dez Bryant along the sideline but his pass was underthrown, giving Revis the turnover.

Bryant “was right with what he did,” Romo said. “He kept going on it. It was a dumb decision, too reactionary. I should’ve made sure. That was my fault. It’s just disappointing and frustrating right now because we win the football game if I don’t do what I did. It’s hard to swallow just knowing we lost this game because of me tonight.”

Romo finished with 342 yards on 23-of-36 passing, but the Cowboys have lost the last three games in which Romo has eclipsed 300 yards. The Cowboys lost to Chicago (374 yards) and Tennessee (406) last year at Cowboys Stadium.
