Quarterback Tony Romo said he was off by a yard on his first interception in Thursday’s game against the Dolphins, the ball intended for tight end Martellus Bennett on the sideline.
“I just missed to Martellus by about a yard,” Romo said. “If I just throw it more upfield, with a little more arm, the guy’s underneath it. I just missed. That was disappointing.”
He said the second interception, headed for Laurent Robinson, was a miscommunication. “We’ll get that right,” he said.
Robinson said, "I was supposed to stop right there, but I was reading something on the run, and I thought I was supposed to go deep. I made a bad play. I’ve got to do better and got to watch the film to see what happened and do better than that."
From there, Romo said he tried not to let the interceptions affect him the rest of the game. He didn’t have another turnover and he didn’t take a sack over the final three quarters.
“As a quarterback, you have to be able to keep playing the next play like you’ve made three touchdowns or three interceptions. It doesn’t matter,” he said. “This play needs to be executed at the best level after that. That’s a hard thing to do.”
Romo said the Dolphins made it tough to throw.
“There are not a lot of wide-open people ever against that team,” he said. “I felt like 90 percent of the throws today, guys were right on the hip of our guys. They’re big, they’re tall, they’re strong, they’re aggressive. I can see why they’ve won three in a row and haven’t been scored on very much recently.”
The Dolphins didn’t allow a touchdown during their three-game winning streak.
