Wired PR News.com – The Dallas Cowboys have for weeks shocked fans and non-fans alike by remaining playoff contenders despite the odds against them, with numerous team injuries and a controversial player suspension. In Sunday’s game, many thought the team would maintain their winning streak with a substantial lead against the Pittsburgh Steelers up to the second quarter. However, as luck would have it, quarterback Tony Romo through a pass that missed target Jason Witten, and landed in the arms of Deshea Townsend on the opposing team, setting the stage for a shocking change in the game. Pittsburgh took the lead with a touchdown and ended the game with a 20 to 13 win.
Many speculate that the Cowboys are now out the running for the playoffs with no hope for a comeback. However, members of the team refuse to write themselves off completely. As quoted of Tony Romo in a Dallas Morning News report “Other teams have been in this position and gone on to win the Super Bowl… We have, I think, a chance to write our own story. I don’t think it’s completely out of our hands.”
