Tony Romo has actually had a few successful drives to win games this season. For instance, he did it late in wins over the Vikings and Giants. So it’s not as though it never happens.
It just doesn’t happen against good teams when the Cowboys really need it. And so Dallas found a way to lose despite leading the Packers 26-3 at halftime. Is it entirely on Romo? Of course not. Monte Kiffin’s porous defensive and reckless offensive playcalling in the second half share plenty of the blame.
Nevertheless, there are two Romo interceptions to close out the game. The first of those two was clearly on Romo. The last one, after Dallas had already conceded the lead, is a little unclear. It might have been on Cole Beasley. Without knowing the Cowboys’ playbook, the best we can say is there was miscommunication.
How ever much you wanna credit the usual narrative, it’s amusing to look at the game’s win probability turn sharply against Dallas late.
