It’s no secret that Tony Romo had a good game last Sunday against the Steelers, going 30 for 42 passing for a 71.4 percent completion rating, 341 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. That’s a 111.3 passer rating.
Romo’s been having a lot of good games, lately. In four of the Cowboys’ last five games, he’s had 300-plus passing yards, and has a shot at finishing with 5,000 on the year. But Dallas owner Jerry Jones believes this last game was Romo’s best--not just on the season, but on his career.
“Romo, in my mind, played the best game that he’s ever played, and that’s saying a lot because he has played some good games around here,” Jones told 105.3-FM “The Fan” this week, via the Dallas Morning News. “But he had his best game. And he had a real good game against Cincinnati as well. So it is something to be optimistic about, if he can continue that against the Saints.
“Our offensive line is playing better. We’re going to need to play better. But we’re playing better, and that’s giving Romo more time. Things were real slow out there for Romo. That’s a positive. You call it slowing down. And he was really able to really put that ball in there on the right receivers. So all of that was a big plus.”
