It's day two of our month long celebration that is, the NFL Preview Show Extravaganza. Yesterday we profiled the New York Giants. Today, we cover the NFC East champions, the Dallas Cowboys.
The 2007 season saw the first full season in the career of one Tony Ramiro Romo. Sure enough, my namesake didn't falter. The Cowboys won their first five games and soon enough, Romo became an even bigger household name than before. The Cowboys would win 12 of their first 13 games. However, the Cowboys stumbled late in the season, losing two of their final three games.
With a 13-3 record in the regular season, Romo and the Boys were the #1 seed in the NFC playoffs. They faced the New York Giants in the divisional round. The Cowboys were the favorites to knock off the Giants and go on to face the Green Bay Packers in the NFC title game. It was a home game and the Cowboys swept the season series. Unfortunately for Romo, he would lose the game and the Giants would go on to win the Super Bowl.
Romo leads his pack into Cleveland to take on the Browns in week one of the regular season. The Cowboys have some notable games against the Packers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks.
