So Cowboy fans, here we go again…for the 3rd time in 5 years, Tony Romo and the Cowboys are in a sudden death win and in or lose and you once again go home situation. We all know about Tony Romo's career 1-3 playoff record, but I feel we also need to also include his two sudden death Week 17 losses. The first time this occurred was during the 2008 Season when the Cowboys went to Philadelphia. The end result was an ugly for the Cowboys as Dallas lost 44-6 to the Eagles and Romo was 21/39 with 183 yards, along with an interception and two fumbles lost.
If that wasn't hard enough, the Eagles would go on to win their first two Playoff Games and come within a few plays of retiring to the Super Bowl as the Eagles season ended in loss to the Arizona Cardinals. As for last year, the Cowboys were once again apart of a road sudden death game against the New York Giants. Unfortunately for Cowboys fans, it ended in a similar fashion as Dallas fell to the Giants 31-14 and Romo was better but not as his best going 29/37 with 289 yards, 2 TD's, an INT, and lost a fumble. If that wasn't enough, the Giants would go on to win their next 4 games and win their second Super Bowl in a five year span.
And for the third time, the Cowboys will go on the road and play a different NFC East opponent as they play the Washington Redskins in a win or go home game. With all that was said above, I feel the result this year will differ from what occurred in years past for a few different reasons.
In the end, this has been a terrific season for the young, up and coming Washington Redskins but I feel unlike Dallas, Washington isn't prepared to win a game like this just yet.
Dallas 27 Washington 17
