And I’m going to do the job that this team needs to win the game. That’s what we’re trying to do every week when we play and that’s my job when I step out there.” Romo’s three interceptions in the win-or-go-home season finale against Washington last year doomed the Cowboys to another 8-8 season and extended their playoff drought to three seasons.

Romo not oldest Cowboy, but still elder statesman

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By SCHUYLER DIXON AP Sports Writer Tony Romo picked up more than a six-time Pro Bowl guard who can help in pass protection and try to revive a comatose running game.

Dez Flattered But Thinks Romo Has Shot At MVP

Dez Bryant isn’t yet Michael Irvin’s equal as a decorated Dallas Cowboys receiver. But in terms of understanding how the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award is earned give Dez the edge over “The Playmaker.” The Hall-of-Famer Irvin – unabashedly biased toward Bryant and the Cowboys – is predicting that Bryant will win the 2013 MVP award.
