Dallas Cowboys

Oh No, Romo!

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
