Tony Romo had a wild day yesterday, but there was some good

Tony Romo was held to 199 passing yards, did not throw a touchdown pass, and was intercepted twice as the Cowboys lost to the Eagles.

It marked the first time in his NFL career that Romo has finished a game with no touchdown passes, multiple interceptions, and fewer than 200 passing yards. In fact, it was only the third game of his NFL career – and the last was in 2007, also against the Eagles – in which he had no touchdown passes and multiple interceptions, regardless of his passing-yards total.

Romo did have a couple of career achievements during the game that are certainly worth noting.

He broke Troy Aikman’s NFL record for career passing yards on Thanksgiving Day (Romo now has 2,232 yards; Aikman had 2,174 yards).

And Romo’s lone completion to Jason Witten on Thursday was the 612th Romo-to-Witten completion in their years as teammates, breaking what had been the Cowboys’ record in that regard. Aikman connected with Michael Irvin for 611 completions.
