None of the key markers -- time of possession, third-down defense, balanced offense -- for success the Titans (1-1) had the previous week found their way here today...

Tony Romo 0-2 Versus Ken Whisenhunt

Head Coaches and Quarterbacks are always going to be given a win-loss record next to their name; with that being said, Tony Romo is 0-2  on the road against a Ken Whisenhunt led team. With Jason Garrett as the Offensive Coordinator or Head Coach, the Cowboys are 0-3. I wouldn’t necessarily say Whisenhunt owns the Cowboys, but he does have a formula to beat Garrett and Romo.
