NFL Injury Report:
It is unusual for an eighth-year starting quarterback to change their throwing mechanics, but Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did just that. Romo told Fox Sports Southwest that he has "discovered something that's going to be really special" in his new mechanics.
The change in Romo's mechanics focuses on arm angles and release points. Romo had been experimenting with his new mechanics throughout training camp and the preseason. He completed 72% of his passes during the preseason and appeared to throw a more accurate deep ball with the changes.
Romo's Achilles heel throughout his career has been that he throws too many interceptions, especially late in games when the game is on the line. He tied for the league lead in interceptions in 2012 with 19, and threw a late-game interception in a Week 17 loss to the Washington Redskins that ended the Cowboys' season. With his new discovery, Romo hopes to be a more accurate passer and cut back on interceptions, which would lead to more wins for the Cowboys. We will get our first glimpse at Romo's new mechanics when it counts in Sunday night's Week 1 matchup against the New York Giants.

The Dallas Cowboys head into the upcoming 2013 NFL regular season as a legitimate playoff contender once again in a wide-open NFC East division that might not be decided until the last week in December.
