Tony Romo ranks sixth in the NFL this season in fourth-quarter passing with a 101.9 passer rating. He has completed 69.5 percent of his passes in the final 15 minutes for 454 yards, three touchdowns and an interception.
For his career, Romo has the highest passer rating in NFL history at 101.9.
So Cowboys owner Jerry Jones certainly had statistical evidence to support his stance that Romo is the "best in the business in the fourth quarter," even after Romo's untimely interception against the Broncos with 1:57 left in a loss two weeks ago.
Jones was asked on his weekly radio show what his feelings will be if the Cowboys get the ball back, down four points, in the final minutes against the Eagles on Sunday.
“I’m expecting to win it," Jones said on KRLD-FM 105.3. "I hadn’t booked it, but we had ‘em against Denver. And we’ve got a quarterback that’s the best in the business in the fourth quarter. He’s the best. He can make it happen when it’s not there. Other than being ahead with the ball, there’s no one I’d rather have at this time than to have Romo trying to get us down the field in a short period of time.”
Romo has 18 come-from-behind wins in the fourth quarter.
