On Thanksgiving Day, just four days after facing the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, the Dallas Cowboys were charged with taking on the Philadelphia Eagles in North Texas.

As you probably remember, that game didn’t turn out so well for the Cowboys. They were drubbed by the Eagles 33-10, and quarterback Tony Romo played arguably his worst game of the season, going 18 of 29 passing for 199 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions for a total QBR--which runs on a scale from 1-100--of 18.6.

On Sunday night, the Eagles saw a different Romo.

With 10 days of rest prior to the rematch with Philly, Romo went 22 of 31 for 265 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. His total QBR was 91.6.

Tony Romo was a lot better tonight,” said Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin, per ESPN Dallas. “He moved a lot better. You could tell the rest helped him.”
