Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

How's this for a trifecta of terrible:

*Tony Romo pulls off a David Blaine escape in the pocket, only to overthrow Miles Austin and have his pass intercepted to lead to an Eagles' touchdown.

*On the ensuing kickoff, returner Isaiah Stanback botches the ball and finally falls on it at the six.

*On the next play Romo -- shades of Seattle, eh? -- loses his grip on the ball en route to a handoff to Marion Barber. After chasing it down in the end zone, he tries to scramble but fumbles again and has it recovered by the Eagles.

Dallas 14-6, meet Philly 20-14.

But ESPN's gotta be loving it. A season's worth of highlights in just more than a quarter.-- Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
