Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo said he felt okay after Sunday’s 20-19 win, in a game that saw the Dallas signal caller knocked around to the tune of three sacks--this not including one sack that was negated because Romo was face-masked.
“I’ll be all right,” Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. “I just twisted it up a little bit. Normal stuff in football.”
Romo, who left the game with his jersey torn in a few places, went 25 of 43 passing for 268 yards and a touchdown. And even though is wasn’t the prettiest of victories, it was a potentially big one, as Dallas still has some playoff hopes.
“We needed to win,” Romo said. “We needed to win last week. We needed to win five weeks in a row. We’re 4-1, I think, in our last five. We’re not a perfect football team. I think we know that we’re going to be in a battle every week we play. We have to play a really, good, sound football game to have a chance. Our team continues to be mentally tough and keep staying in this thing.
“I’m proud of our guys, the mental toughness it took and what it takes to win these games. It’s not easy. We’ve just got to keep going forward and keep getting better.”
