Tony Romo won’t want to show this report card to his parents.
Romo highlighted a cavalcade of subpar performers at the quarterback position this week despite throwing for 437 yards and nearly leading the Cowboys back from the brink of defeat. Romo’s poor decision-making and four interceptions ultimately sank Dallas and could prove to be its undoing this season.
Across the pond, Tom Brady was playing ambassador to Europe in grand fashion. Europe’s brand of football doesn’t often yield much scoring, so let’s hope the fans at Wembley Stadium enjoyed the change of pace. Brady lit up London to the tune of 304 yards and four touchdowns—and Bob’s your uncle.
Two rookie quarterbacks also got solid wins in Week 8. Brandon Weeden did it by doing next to nothing, while Andrew Luck led the Colts to a game-winning touchdown in overtime against the Titans. This may be one of the best quarterback classes we’ll ever see, though time will tell. No rookies earned better than a “B” grade this week, however.
Elsewhere around the league, Michael Vick could be on the brink of losing his starting job, Josh Freeman continues to impress and Matt Stafford finally put together a performance Lions fans can be proud of. It was another crazy week in the NFL to be sure.
