Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett expects quarterback Tony Romo to “bounce back well” from the loss to the Packers when the team travels to Washington to face the Redskins this week.
“It’s our job as coaches to make sure he understands that just like every guy on our team, we make the corrections and move forward,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We coach Tony just like we coach everybody else. We coach Tony with positive reinforcement and with negative reinforcement.”
In the 37-36 loss to Green Bay, Romo went 29 of 48 passing for 358 yards and two touchdowns. However, he also threw a pair of costly interceptions in the fourth quarter. On the first pick, it was revealed afterward, Romo checked out of a run play to throw.
“It’s part of the play call,” Garrett said. “I don’t want to get into the details of that. But we should have done a better job. I should have done a better job, the staff should have done a better job, Tony should have done a better job. Tony’s played very well at the end of a lot of games. That’s well documented. People are starting to recognize that. Sometimes he and we haven’t played well at the end of games. We have to find a way to do it on a more consistent basis.”
