No Tebowing in Dallas, but if there were Romoing, it would look something like this. Tony Romo set a record for passing attempts on Sunday against the Giants and came close to setting a few more. However, nobody will want to remember these numbers. The stat line was as follows: 62 attempts (team record) 36 completions (2nd highest total in team history) 437 yards (3rd highest total in team history) 4 interceptions (tied for the second highest total in team history) 22,907 career yards (now the second highest total in team history, surpassing Roger Staubach) It stands to reason that the Cowboys have not fared well when quarterbacks have thrown multiple interceptions. However, in the history of the Cowboys, days with big passing yards have also been bad.  Consider these statistics: Attempts Only three Dallas quarterbacks have had at least 50 passing attempts in a game. This includes Romo, Troy Aikman, and Vinny Testaverde. The Cowboys’ record in those games: 1-7.

Completions Romo is the only Cowboys quarterback with at least 36 completions in a single game. He holds the team record with 41, set in 2009 against the Giants. The result in both games? Losses, of course. This is the fifth time that Romo has completed at least 34 passes. His record in those games is 1-4. Aikman completed 34 passes twice and lost both games. Jon Kitna completed 34 passes in 2010, and the Cowboys lost. Yardage Romo, Aikman, and Don Meredith are each on the list of QBs with 400 yards passing in a game. Their combined record: 1-4.

Interceptions Not surprisingly, the Cowboys have a terrible record when QBs have thrown at least four interceptions. Romo has now done it three times and has a 1-2 record in those games.  The Cowboys’ historic record when QBs have thrown at least four picks is 5-19. Danny White had the most games with at least four picks with six. Strangely, though, he had a 4-2 career record in those six games. Staubach’s Numbers No surprise that Romo surpassed Staubach in passing yardage. The comparisons end there. Period.
