    Phillip Tanner says it was his mistake that led to the second-half interception by Tony Romo in Sunday’s game against the Eagles.

    There didn’t appear to be much doubt about that, as the television broadcast showed Romo chastising the little-used third-year running back.

    “I brought my man inside,” Tanner said. “I should have broke outside. But that’s something I should have known. As the leader that Romo is, he did what he was supposed to do. He came over and got me right.”

    Romo said the throw was intended for Cole Beasley, who was open, and that Tanner had got an unusual coverage by the defender, linebacker DeMeco Ryans.

    “The kid makes a heck of a play,” Romo said of Ryans. “I got to be able to somehow feel him and see him and not make that mistake.”

    Tanner still blamed himself.

    “That’s something I should know,” he said. “But we got the win. Overall, that’s the most important thing. So I just got to build from that and not make that mistake again.”

    Tanner had two carries, both in short yardage. He was stopped on a third-and-1 but scored on a 1-yard run.

    He's tough and he plays that way. Until they can find someone who does the same he does bring something to the table.

    My apologies then to Romo, whom I leveled the blame at the INT yesterday.

    Kind of sucks that Romo has to be on the hook for both of those INTs from a statistics perspective. Really hurts his QB rating.
