Linebacker Bradie James, a veteran of do-or-die games with the Cowboys, made it plain how much the Cowboys need Tony Romo to play Sunday against the Giants.
“We gotta have him,” James said. “I mean, there’s no way. You don’t have a chance without him. Everybody knows. Even when he went down this past game, you could hear the air in the stadium go out. So we’ve got to have him out there.”
James said he and Romo understand how the season will be judged by the outcome of Sunday’s game.
“Romo and I were talking about that today,” James said. “We’ve won some of these games and been disappointed in some. The only way you can right those disappointments is to go out here and win. We’re still in a great position. Last year, we weren’t in a position like this. We know that feeling. It’s just up to us to go out and get this done.”
