LANDOVER, Md. -- Tony Romo trudged off FedEx Field Sunday night having failed yet again when it mattered most.
Sadly, it's an all too familiar sight in regular-season finales.
For those of you who take a sadistic thrill in watching Romo and owner Jerry Jones fail to live up to this once-proud franchise's legacy, the Cowboys are 0-3 in win-and-get-in games since 2008.
So the Cowboys will miss the playoffs for the fourth time in five years, which is about as embarrassing as it gets for a franchise that has won five Lombardi Trophies.
Washington 28, Dallas 18.
Blame this one on Romo.
Romo, the epitome of efficiency the past seven games with 17 touchdown passes and three interceptions, looked skittish early and ultimately turned in a shoddy performance in a game the Cowboys needed him to be a star.
He finished 20-of-37 for 218 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. Romo's passer rating of 55.9 was his worst of the season.
