Note that the stats above are very close to Romo’s final season totals, but not exactly the same due to a few passes that were thrown away or spiked. The play against the Bears on which Romo had the ball knocked from his hands but was credited with an interception is also not included.
You can see that a big portion of Romo’s interceptions came over the middle of the field. Romo threw five interceptions on dig routes alone, despite attempting only 29 such passes all year. That 17.2 percent interception rate is over seven times as high as Romo’s 2.3 percent interception rate on all other throws! We see similar struggles on drag routes; Romo managed only 7.03 YPA, no touchdowns, and one pick. And despite outstanding efficiency on post routes, Romo’s interception rate of 9.1 percent on such throws is much too high.
