Going into the Thanksgiving Day game against the Eagles, the general thought was that the Cowboys’ offense would be effective, while the defense might struggle. As it happened, Dallas struggled on both sides of the ball on their way to a 33-10 loss, and quarterback Tony Romo certainly didn’t help the cause all that much.
Romo went 18 of 29 passing, was intercepted twice and was sacked four times. His 38-game streak of games with at least one touchdown pass was snapped.
After the loss, Romo declared he would bounce back.
“I should have been better and I am going to play much better next week,” Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. “I can promise you that.”
For Romo, the process of getting back to his old, effective self isn’t anything complicated.
“I think, if you’re a good enough player usually you just put your head down and go to work and get better for the next game,” Romo said. “Each week brings about a whole new set of challenges. Some teams are better at certain things that can give you a little more trouble and sometimes the game can get out of hand earlier than you expect so you have to change your plan sometimes for that.”
