With the Cowboys facing second and six and nursing a five-point lead with roughly three minutes to play, Romo threw a pass that was intercepted. The blame instantly went to the Cowboys’ coaching staff for calling a pass play.
The only problem? The coaching staff didn’t call the play.
As explained by NBC’s Alex Flanagan from AT&T Stadium during Football Night in America, Garrett told reporters after the loss that Romo changed the play.
While Romo may have indeed changed the play, Garrett shouldn’t be calling him out publicly. By not handling it in house, Garrett may have invited a new level of dysfunction to Dallas.
Two big tops of turmoil will converge in Maryland next Sunday, when the Cowboys play the Redskins at FedEx Field.
