Garrett hails tough guy Romo

January 06, 2015 07:55:44 UK

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has hailed the calmness under pressure of quarterback Tony Romo as the key to his side’s success this season.

Romo survived six sacks and ten hits to lead his side to a 24-20 win over the Detroit Lions in an NFC Wild Card game, setting up a Divisional showdown with the Green Bay Packers.

He does a great job keeping his eyes up and making those kinds of plays.

And his toughness under pressure was exemplified by a fourth quarter touchdown pass to Terrance Williams, which proved to be the matchwinning score.

That recovery after a tough day in the pocket caused Garrett to heap praise on his leader, as he said: “What’s most impressive to me is when you take some hits and you take some sacks and honestly, some of that was on him – the ball’s got to come out of his hands in some of those situations and he understands that.

“But for him at those critical moments down the stretch to be so calm, so poised, so composed – the protection was outstanding on the touchdown to Terrance.

“He had a ton of time to throw there, but he does a great job keeping his eyes up and making those kinds of plays.”

Romo and the Cowboys started the season with four losses in pre-season and an opening day defeat to the San Francisco 49ers, but since then they have won 13 games out of 16 to remain in the hunt for Super Bowl XLIX.

The other NFC Divisional match-up sees the defending champion Seattle Seahawks host the Carolina Panthers are CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks are 1.72 to win the NFC Championship, with the Cowboys 6.50 and the Packers 3.25.
