Whatever weight you put into statistics these numbers are going to bear down on you. 25 of 36 for 506 yards, 5 touch downs, and 1 interception. Tony Romo had a NFL quarterback rating of 141.4. He played the best game of his career, and statistically the greatest game of any Cowboys quarterback ever. Peyton Manning got the win but his 33 of 40, 4 touchdowns, 1 interception, and 132.7 quarterback rating actually points at being the second best performance of the night. So how do the Cowboys still manage to lose when Tony Romo out duels Peyton Manning? Well let’s break this down. The Broncos are organized. Their play calling is diverse and frankly they punched holes in the Cowboys defence easier than you or I could punch holes through a marshmallow.
