Maybe all the Dallas Cowboys needed was Tony Romo on the field to be somewhat whole again. It looked like it last night as my Washington Redskins lost the bone-crushing game 14-10.
The Cowboys weren’t just struggling without Romo, they were lost. They had no identity. No meaning. Now they do.
Perhaps the most entertaining thing about the game was having two injured stars on the field in Romo and Clinton Portis. That’s what November football is all about, pushing through the pain and struggling on.
For Dallas’s part, their Pro-bowl offensive line looked better this week than in weeks past and Romo showed why he deserved the $30 mil signing bonus he recieved last year by improvising a shovel pass to set up the go ahead touchdown.
At 6-4 the Cowboys and Redskins are now tied for second behind the New York Giants and ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles. The Redskins have the easier schedule the rest of the way, but that may not mean anything as the Redskins lost two games they should have won already.
