Tony Romo has returned to 4th quarter norm

IRVING, Texas – Tony Romo's terrible fourth quarter in the season-opening loss to the Jets didn’t exactly start a trend.

All he’s done since then is lead a couple of fourth-quarter comebacks, giving him 11 game-winning drives down the stretch in his career. Romo has completed 18 of 27 passes for 308 yards and a touchdown during the fourth quarters and overtime of the wins over the 49ers and Redskins.

In other words, Romo has pretty much returned to the norm.

Despite all the drama about Romo’s reputation as a choker, he has the best fourth-quarter passer rating of any active quarterback (100.3). His passer rating in fourth quarters this season, even with the poor performance at MetLife Stadium, is 115.1.
