The play was on 4th and 1 on the 9 yard line with 1:19 left in the 4th quarter, with the Dallas Cowboys about to go up 23-21 with a Martin Gramatica chip shot. Tony Romo was the backup at the beginning of the season and was the place holder for Gramatica for that season and that game. The snap went off to Romo’s hands, but the ball seemed to slip, causing Gramatica to back off and Romo had to run the ball into the end zone or reach a first down. As Romo desperately tried reaching the end zone after his mistake, Jordan Babineaux, a Seattle Seahawks' cornerback came behind Romo, tripping him up and Romo fumbled the ball. The ball was recovered by the Seahawks as Romo continued to sit on the ground, grasping his helmet in shame.
