What a great day in the NFL for those of you who take to Twitter to drop f-bombs, dick jokes, etc. towards QBs who blow a 24-point lead. Tony Romo had a 3rd quarter for the ages with two INTs returned for TDs. Um, those were on consecutive drives. Instead of winning, going 3-1 and staying with the pack in the NFC East, the Cowboys are a ho hum 2-2.

If you like NSFW tweets and black dudes destroying the dictionary, this one is for you.

Here is how Romo explained his INTs, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“The first one, the linebacker (Bobby Carpenter) made a good play on the ball. He got out under it. I thought I threw it high enough to get over him, but he went up and got it. He did a good job on it.”

“The second one, on a slant, the corner (Chris Houston) did a good job staying inside. It is a timing throw. You throw it, let it go, and we just have to be better on the throw and catch on that play. Give them credit again for doing a good job.”

“The last one, to Jason (Witten), we had a good call-up to get by everybody. I just didn’t get enough on the throw. I’ll be anxious to see the tape. He was coming open past the linebackers and it was going to be a good play. We got what we wanted on the play, and I thought it was going to be a big play for us honestly.”

Final: Detroit 34-30.
