Why so many turnovers in Arlington, where quarterback Tony Romo has thrown 12 of his 15 interceptions this season? Included was a five-interception outing in a loss to the Bears and a four-interception performance in a loss to the Giants.
“I don’t know. I’m not the quarterback,” said receiver Dwayne Harris. “I don’t know what Tony sees or what he’s looking at. Any game you have a lot of turnovers, I know it’s going to be hard for you to win.”
Tight end Jason Witten said Romo is looking at too many early deficits to stick with established game plans and that leads to mistakes. Dallas has trailed by at least seven points in every home game this season and has faced double-digit deficits in four of the five, including Thursday’s 38-31 loss to Washington.
“It’s too hard when you get away from your plan (with early deficits),” Witten said. “It’s all a product of getting behind in games. The Giants game you look at, the Bears game and again (against Washington) … You’re coming from behind and Tony has to anticipate on those throws. You’re throwing 60 times instead of 35. That’s what the product is. Nothing more than that. We’ve got to get that fixed. You can’t play football like that and expect to win. It’s hard to overcome.”
