Tony Romo: 5 Things We Learned About Cowboys QB Monday

Tony Romo led his team to another come-from-behind victory on Monday night, which was an almost unimaginable possibility merely two weeks ago. 

Romo has rallied after his disastrous fourth quarter in a season-opening loss to the New York Jets, directing the Cowboys to back-to-back late victories against the San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins while dealing with a fractured rib and punctured lung.

The offensive line didn't provide much help for Romo on Monday, as he was under pressure all night. 

Romo stood in the pocket and delivered the football, and even though his receivers didn't always know where they were going and his center wasn't always looking before he snapped the ball, he led his team to another win.

It was a fairly common misconception that Romo was a weak-minded quarterback who was terrible in the fourth quarter, as I discussed last week

The pendulum seems to have swung in the other direction now, as his toughness, fourth-quarter prowess and comeback victories were repeatedly mentioned throughout the Monday night broadcast. 

Romo came into this game with something to prove, and he did his job by getting a victory for a banged-up team in their home opener.
