Brady, an elite quarterback, entered the game on pace to break Dan Marino's single-season record for passing yards. Romo, who hopes to turn the corner and become elite, was looking to brush off a second-half collapse against the Detroit Lions.
Both Brady and Romo benefit from having great receivers. Brady has one of the best in Wes Welker, along with another solid starter in Deion Branch and a solid tight end in Rob Gronkowski.
Romo has his terrific targets. Miles Austin is supreme and Dez Bryant is a star in the making. Both Austin and Bryant are fully healthy for the first time this season. Jason Witten is a very reliable tight end.
This piece breaks down the quarterback matchup quarter-by-quarter. Which quarterback had a better start to the game? Was Romo able to hang with Brady in the clutch? Was the final score the result of another Romo choke job? Who did better overall?
