Romo: 'I would have booed us, too'
ARLINGTON, Texas — Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said he tunes out the crowd most of the time when he's in the game. But it would be hard to believe that he didn't hear the booing in the first half Sunday at Cowboys Stadium.
Asked about it after the 29-24 loss to the New York Giants, Romo responded: "I would have booed us, too. We deserved it that time. We did not start the game the way we wanted to."
The boos came down after Romo was intercepted three times in the first 16 minutes, leading to a 23-0 Giants lead. But the 94,067 got behind their team as the Cowboys rallied to pull ahead 24-23 late in the third quarter.
"Obviously, they were great today with the way they brought energy," Romo said. "They helped our defense tremendously. That was as good a home-field crowd I have been a part of. That's exciting to have that going forward. We just need to do a couple of things better earlier in the football game. We didn't do a good job."
