Romo started his career off on the right foot in 2006, going 6-4 and earning a Pro Bowl nomination after taking over for Drew Bledsoe. Romo took the Cowboys to the playoffs despite the Cowboys losing three of the last four games. Romo's first playoff games was fairly decent (17-of-29, 189 yards passing, 1 TD, 0 INT) before he botched the hold on what would have been a game-winning field goal.
Romo had some fantastic games in his first full season as a starter. In his first Thanksgiving Day game, Romo was amazing, going 22-of-29 passing for 306 yards and five touchdowns, which is still a career high. On November 12, 2006, Romo went 20-of-29 for 306 yards and two touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals.
He had three game-winning drives.
On the other hand, he had a fair share of miscues. Romo completed less than half of his passes and threw two interceptions in a 42-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints. He completed less than half his passes, threw two interceptions and totaled only 142 yards passing in a 21-7 loss to the New York Giants.
Romo managed to show up in the leaderboard in a few statistical categories in his first full season. He was second in completion percentage, first in yards per pass attempt (8.6), second in touchdown rate (5.6 percent of pass dropbacks) and fifth in passer rating.
