Tony Romo had one of his two best seasons as a starter. Romo was fourth in passer rating (102.5), fifth in passing touchdowns (32), seventh in passing yards (4,184) and third in completion percentage (66.3).
Romo was as efficient as ever. He had his second lowest interception rate (1.9 percent), highest completion rate for a full season and had his highest passer rating by more than five points.
Romo had his moments. He led four comeback wins, the most he's had in any season. That includes comeback wins in Weeks 2 and 3 against the San Francisco 49ers and Redskins with a broken rib. He had the blown leads against the New York Jets, Detroit Lions and New York Giants (in Week 14).
All in all, the Cowboys wouldn't have been close without Romo. After he left the Week 16 loss to the Eagles with a bruised hand, Stephen McGee couldn't create the output to keep pace with the Eagles. Romo was much steadier than the rushing game or defense. In only three of his full games, Romo had a passer rating below 85.
Meanwhile, the pass rush was up and down. The rushing game hinged on the health of fullback Tony Fiammetta.
While others flagged often, Romo was fairly consistent, which is more than most would expect.
