IRVING, Texas – Here’s a few random thoughts that have been on my mind here in the last few days as the Cowboys transition from a big win over the Eagles and now face the first of two straight AFC opponents.
I thought it was ironic that in the game Tony Romo surpassed Troy Aikman’s touchdown record of 165 scoring throws, that he actually played a very Aikman-like game.
Ok, not comparing the two players at all because there won’t be another Aikman in terms of what he meant for one franchise. But the way he played the game and his style of play, was somewhat how Romo played the other night against the Eagles.
On the national stage with his team pretty much backed up against the wall, Tony Romo delivered in a way we typically saw from Aikman. Romo had stellar accuracy, completing 22 of 27 passes, his yards weren’t off the charts but 303 yards is still noteworthy even in today’s passing game. Romo was a perfect 10 of 10 in the second half with three touchdowns. He used a solid running game to open up the middle and soften the defense. And when the moment was right to strike, he did.
Not saying Romo and Aikman are comparable in many ways, but just in Sunday’s win over the Eagles, Romo had an Aikman-like game to help his team get a much-needed win.
No Quit in Philly
The way Sunday night’s game went down was probably the best-case scenario for the Cowboys. While many people wanted to see a blowout win and the Cowboys put Philly away early, that rarely happens in division games, regardless of record.
