The Dallas Cowboys had high praise for Tony Romo’s performance on Thanksgiving Day, while dealing with a stomach flu, with receiver Dez Bryant going so far as to compare it to Michael Jordan’s famous flu game in the 1997 NBA Finals.
Romo himself doesn’t believe his work in the 31-24 win over the Raiders wasn’t anything all that heroic, though.
“I’m fine,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “This is the NFL. Guys play through a lot worse than I just did, I promise you that.”
Romo, who reportedly took IVs prior to the game, finished 23-for-32 passing (including a perfect 12-for-12 in the second half) for 225 yards and a touchdown. He was also sacked twice for 17 yards.
