Tony Romo’s 19th Nervous Breakdown: Lions Beat Dallas 34-30

After leading Dallas to a pair of come-from-behind wins over San Francisco and Washington in consecutive weeks and seemingly earning street cred for playing injured, Tony Romo regressed back to “Late Game Disaster” Tony Romo on Sunday.

The Dallas Cowboys watched as their 27-3 third quarter lead became a 34-30 victory for the 4-0 Detroit Lions.

Detroit’s 24-p0int comeback stands as the biggest blown lead in Cowboys and remarkably it occurred with the Lions scoring an offensive touchdown until the fourth quarter.

Once Dallas took a 27-3 lead, Romo threw a pair of pick six interception returns for scores.

Despite still trailing by 13 at the start of the fourth quarter, Detroit utilized a pair of Calvin Johnson touchdown catches to stun Cowboys Stadium.

Romo fired three touchdown passes but also three interceptions, the last arriving as Dallas protected a 30-27 lead with just over four minutes left.

Romo’s meltdown mixed with Detroit’s comeback led to the odd scene near game’s end with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones trying to evidently console his quarterback. After the morale support offering, Romo appeared to snatch his hand away from Jones.

It marks the second time this season that Dallas blew a double-digit fourth quarter lead. In Week 1, they led the Jets by 13 before losing 27-24.

Dallas and their schizophrenic ways return to the field in two weeks. They visit the Patriots in Week 6.
