Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s first 100 yard game in the history of the NFL is the best of the season for the Dallas Cowboys, according to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
“This game was so emotional,” Jones said of the Cowboys’ 20-14 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday.
“I have never seen anything like it in my entire life.”
Romo’s streak of 100-plus completions tied him with Brett Favre for the most in NFL history, according a CBS Sports database.
Romo completed 11 of 14 passes for 120 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions, in his first start since tearing his ACL during the 2014 regular season.
Romo was also sacked once and fumbled the ball once.
“You saw the passion that the players had,” Jones continued.
“They were so vocal.
It was unbelievable to see.”
Romo has a career passer rating of 103.3, and ranks second on the NFL with a passer rating over 80.0.
“We know that Tony Romo is the man,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.
“He’s a leader, a great player and a great leader.
This is what we’ve been waiting for.”
Romo led the NFL in completions for his career, with 10.5 per game, and tied him for second in passing yards (3,065).
He’s tied for the league lead in touchdown passes with 21.
“Tony Romo was amazing today,” Garrett said of his quarterback.
“This was an amazing day for him and the Dallas Cowboy organization.”
