Two quarterbacks. Two jobs to do. Two great playoff performances by Tony Romo and Andrew Luck on Sunday. Both, leading their teams to wins getting them into the next round of the postseason.
The day started by Andrew Luck tearing up the Bengals anyway he wanted. Andrew completed 31 out of 44 passes for 376 yards, a touchdown and no turnovers. His touchdown pass to Donte Moncrief was special. Under pressure, stepped up in the pocket, off balance while being tackled delivered the ball 36 yards, leading Moncrief into the end-zone, who also beat two Cincy defenders.
Luck completed passes to nine different pass catchers, ten going to Boom Herron, six to his go-to, T.Y. Hilton. Up next for Indy is a rematch with Denver where Luck might need to play even better than he did against the Bengals.
Day starting with a Indianapolis win, ended with a Dallas Cowboys victory, also. That was a big thanks to Tony Romo. The ‘choke artist’ everyone thinks he has seemed to continuously been shot down all season just like it was Sunday. Mr. Romo threw for 293 passing yards and two touchdowns, both to Terrance Williams. Although he was sacked six times by the Lions, he also made a tremendous play on what turned out to be the winning score with 2:32 remaining in the game. He kept the play alive, which hes best in the league at doing, and found Williams in the middle of the end-zone.
The choke artist narrative must stop now. Romo has been GREAT late in games and it didn’t stop Sunday. Dallas and Tony will be a tough out come next weekend with there meeting against the Green Bay Packers.
