IRVING, Texas (AP) — The first time Tony Romo started a Thanksgiving game for the Dallas Cowboys “Romo-mania” was so frenzied that a group of fans strung together the letters in his name and hung it alongside the Ring of Honor at Texas Stadium.
Security guards made the fans take it down before kickoff, which sure looked foolish considering what Romo did next: five touchdown passes, tying a club record, all in just the first three quarters. Club owner Jerry Jones was so giddy afterward that he joked about firing those security guards.
Five years later, Romo has yet to live up to the hope and hype of those heady days. But another wave of “Romo-mania” may not be far away.
Romo goes into a Thanksgiving game against Miami looking on one of the best rolls of his career. He’s gone three straight games without an interception, and Dallas has won them all, pushing the Cowboys into a tie for first place in the NFC East.
The timing is great for him as he’s made a tradition of shining on this holiday. Romo is 4-0 on Thanksgivings, having thrown 12 touchdowns and just two interceptions. (He missed last year’s game because of a broken collarbone.)
Miami presents an intriguing challenge.
