Tony Romo throws critical interception

It's hard for Romo to live his narrative down with plays like this.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is known for two things: Being the former boyfriend of The Sound of Music star Carrie Underwood, and throwing inopportune interceptions. It's safe to say we're not talking about our favorite things in Week 15.


Romo ensured the door was left wide open for the Packers when he attempted to pass to Miles Austin before being picked off by Sam Shields. It was a bizarre play that might never have intended to be a pass in the first place.

It's the next chapter in a long and strange book about Tony Romo as quarterback. If this winds up being what costs the Cowboys a playoff spot, then this play will long live in infamy among some of his worst -- even though Romo is having one of the best seasons in his career.
