CultureMap Dallas: Romo, Cowboys show grit in clutch win

Tony Romo

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

Two weeks of waiting, kvetching and overanalyzing came down to one game-winning drive for the Dallas Cowboys. When Dan Bailey split the uprights for a 35-yard field goal at time expired, the Cowboys had a much-needed 24-21 win over the New York Giants and the 20th game-winning drive of quarterback Tony Romo’s career.

“It was nut-cuttin’ time and the quarterback did a great job,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett told reporters after the game. All told, Romo threw for 250 yards with two touchdowns and one interception,  a pedestrian effort — by Romo’s standards. But two weeks after the New Orleans Saints embarrassed the Cowboys in prime time, the win against New York showed Dallas still has some tricks up its sleeve.

In my latest story at CultureMap Dallas, I tell you why the Cowboys got it done on that final drive.
