Morris Claiborne picked off Peyton Manning late in the third quarter Sunday, ending Manning’s streak of 227 passes without an interception.
Nobody was more excited than the people in owner Jerry Jones’ suite. Jones himself got into the action with an emphatic double fist pump.
For any other quarterback, an interception would not have been a big deal, but this pick was Manning’s first of 2013 and was a big momentum builder for the trailing Cowboys.
Unfortunately, Jones was also on the other end of a pick celebration when Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw his own interception at a critical point in the game — with the game tied and the Cowboys deep in their own territory with less than two minutes to play.
The interception was just the second thrown by Romo this season and the only blemish on an otherwise historically flawless day for the QB. But it gave Manning the ball late, and allowed the Broncos to win the game. Think Jones knew his Cowboys were toast when Romo threw it?
