The Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 20-10, on Sunday evening, but it came at a high cost as the Dallas Cowboys will lose quarterback Tony Romo with a broken clavicle. In this week’s edition of First and 10 we explore the impact of his injury, Sean Lee’s great game and what DeMarco Murray must be thinking right now.

Let’s start with this. Just for this week, in honor of Sunday’s game, I’m re-naming our game review First-and-15. Geez. The Dallas Cowboys committed a franchise-high 18 penalties. And won.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is out for some time with a broken left clavicle. The injury occurred in the third quarter when Romo lost the football trying to avoid a sack and the tackle forced Romo down on his shoulder. The video showed him in pain immediately. Fox’s cameras caught him on the way to the locker room and you could see him say, “It’s broken.”

Did someone ask “What’s the worst possible thing that could happen to the Cowboys this week?” Jinx.

The Cowboys are going to give the injury another look on Monday. But remember that Romo had this very injury five years ago and missed 10 games. The only difference this time around is that the injury is early enough in the season that Romo could make it back for a potential playoff run.

Note I said, “potential.” With Romo and Dez Bryant both out for some time, it’s hard to feel confident about a playoff push.
