Tony Romo heard the boos in the first half of the Cowboys’ loss to the Giants at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday following his third interception of the half, a pick-six snapped out of the air and returned for the score by New York’s Jason Pierre-Paul--after all, how could he not have? They weren’t exactly hushed--but he wasn’t shocked by the reaction. In fact, Romo said after the game, he understands it.
“I would have booed us, too,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We deserved it that time. We did not start the game the way we wanted to.”
Romo and the Cowboys came back to take the lead with 24 unanswered points through the second and third quarters but ultimately fell short, as the Giants hit two late field goals to steal a tough road win, 29-24. The boos subsided after Dallas clawed their way back into the game, and afterward, Romo said the crowd at JerryWorld was actually one of the better crowds he’s seen in the three and a half years the stadium has been open.
“Obviously, they were great today with the way they brought energy,” Romo said. “They helped our defense tremendously. That was as good a home-field crowd as I have been a part of. That’s exciting to have that going forward. We just need to do a couple of things better earlier in the football game. We didn’t do a good job.”
