    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had a rough Thanksgiving Day last Thursday, as the team was blown out of the building, 33-10, by the rival Philadelphia Eagles.

    Romo went 18 of 29 passing for 199 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. It was the first time in 38 games that he failed to find the end zone, and he was sacked by the Eagles defense four times.

    But passing game coordinator and playcaller Scott Linehan has no doubt the Cowboys’ signal caller will bounce back this Thursday against the Bears.

    100 percent confident,” Linehan said, per the Dallas Morning News. “Quarterbacks aren’t going to have A-games every week. You’re going to have a couple games that aren’t as good as others. I love his experience and the fact that he’s been through that. He’s had a really good season for us and we as an offense, we as a team, didn’t have one of our better days last week.

    “It has nothing to do with anything other than we’ve all got to do our part better and step up better. Tony is a great, experienced veteran leader for us. We know he’s going to come ready to play the next game after a game like that.”
