As has happened often during his NFL career, Dallas Cowboys’ Tony Romo put on a masterful and historic performance, this time against the Denver Broncos, throwing for over 500 yards and 5 touchdowns, but threw a game-changing interception in crunch time — again — in a heartbreaking 51-48 loss.
It was the most prolific passing game in Cowboys’ history during the third-highest scoring game ever in the NFL — far outdoing Hall of Famer-to-be Peyton Manning’s highly-impressive and surgical 400-yard, 5-touchdown day. But that brilliant passing exhibition is lost in the one Romo mistake with just over two minutes. Romo has a well-earned reputation for making bad decisions in the final minutes of big games during his 8-year starting tenure. And Cowboy fans and haters let Romo know about it in no uncertain terms with inventive and witty Twitter and Instagram.
Take a look at the funniest Instagram memes and Twitter responses to Romo choking at the end of yet another important game.
Tony Romo is the kind of bank robber who solves the security system, cracks the safe….. and leaves his wallet at the crime scene. #Cowboys
