Romo would obviously welcome the chance to come to the rescue, should he falter - a different role than he is used to, but one that could cement his folk hero status in Dallas amid a very important season for the franchise. From his linebacker position, Timmons made an open field tackle on Dallas Cowboys star runner Ezekiel Elliott, a stop that if Timmons didn't make could have resulted in a long touchdown run.
The Dallas Cowboys added to their winning streak and Dak Prescott added to his legend in a come-from-behind win over the Steelers on Sunday afternoon. On Sunday in Pittsburgh, the opposite happened for the first time this season.
Rookies Zeke Elliott and Dak Prescott had spent the first half of this season showing us so much in terms of talent and poise. Dallas went 75 yards in 10 plays, ending with Elliott's 14-yard dash with 1:55 left.
"I paid a lot of money for a backup quarterback, as you well know, and this, by the way, is going to be the record for having paid this for the backup quarterback", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday. His 106.2 passer rating is fourth in the National Football League, and only Brady has a better touchdown-to-interception ratio. "He's got the best seat in the house.' I told him to honor him today and Dez went out and did exactly that and had a great night". "Absolutely, absolutely. Let me be real clear on that".
While the team tries to figure out where to go from here after a soul-crushing loss to the Cowboys we'll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we've got you covered. "That's why they are one of the best in the business - and we're not right now".
The Cowboys owner spoke of what Tony Romo's future could be, beyond his playing career, and said he did have a conversation with Romo about the decision to make him the backup. They are trying to find a way to win a game and get back to.500.
"It's just going with the obvious".
"We are undisciplined and not accountable", Roethlisberger saidfrom his locker.
After another thrilling win on the road, the Cowboys sit atop the division, conference and league with a record of 8-1.
The Steelers had several defenders grade poorly against the run, which comes as no surprise since Ezekiel Elliott averaged more than five yards per carry. Instead of settling for a long field goal attempt, the Cowboys instead kept plowing ahead with Elliott going 32 yards right up the middle for the deciding score.
"He practiced all three days, didn't have any lingering negative things from that, and really was able to ... use every aspect of his leverage, of everything he needs to do to make his throws".
