Introducing Romo-seltzer, a new product developed for long-suffering Cowboys fans who get excruciating stomach cramps each time their quarterback crumbles on the big stage.
OK. So we admit there is no such medication.
But, given Tony Romo’s penchant of melting down when the spotlight is strongest, there should be.
Romo was at it again on Sunday night in the regular-season finale for both the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.
And, thanks in large part to another one of his brain drains, the Redskins are NFC East champs after defeating the Cowboys 28-18 at FedEx Field on Sunday night.
With rookie running back Alfred Morris rumbling for 200 yards and three scores, the Redskins will now meet Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks next Sunday afternoon here in the Washington area in an NFC wild card playoff tilt.
