PHILADELPHIA -- Tony Romo has gone two straight games without an interception for the first time this year.
Romo completed 19 of 26 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday’s 38-23 win against Philadelphia. Last week at Atlanta, he completed 25 of 35 passes for 321 yards with a touchdown.
Romo has posted quarterback ratings of 109.3 and 122.1 in the last two games. Since 2006, Romo has 46 games with a passer rating of at least 100, trailing only Drew Brees (52), Tom Brady (51) and Philip Rivers (50).
“The ball matters, obviously,” said Romo, who has 13 picks on the season. “And if you turn the ball over the times that we did in Chicago and New York, you’re fighting a big uphill battle obviously. You can’t play scared. If you just play to never turn the ball over you’re not going to be as good as you could be anyway. You’ll lose to the best teams just because you have to as a quarterback, running back, you’ve got to be able to let it go. You’ve got to be able to cut when you feel and react and you’ve got to trust the people around you.”
Romo, who upped his November record to 20-3, has not gone three games without an interception since Weeks 13-16 last year.
