The Cowboys looked to be in good shape until Tony Romo threw an interception to cornerback Asante Samuel. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett kept an extra blocker to make sure Romo was comfortable against the blitz on the first couple of drives. On the interception, it looked like both Cowboys tackles were beaten. Romo escaped the blitz, but then overthrew Miles Austin.

Romo bought himself some time, and then rushed the throw for no apparent reason. It didn't take the Eagles long to capitalize, and now we have a 14-13 game. The pass interference on Anthony Henry that set up the touchdown looked pretty straightforward. He didn't find the ball, and he bumped Greg Lewis. On the replay, though, it did look like Lewis had a fistfull of jersey.
