QB Tony Romo Says Cowboys Will Find A Way To Win If Within 10-14 Points
Perhaps the biggest difference in the Cowboys’ last six games is that they’ve been able to average over 15 points in the fourth quarter during that stretch, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.
After averaging 5.3 points in the fourth quarter during the first eight games of the season, the Cowboys have outscored their opponents 94 (15.6 average) to 39 (6.5) during the fourth over the last six. The result has been a 5-1 record.
Tony Romo, who has thrown 12 touchdowns and three interceptions during those six games, said Wednesday that as long as the Cowboys keep things close entering the final quarter they have a shot at winning.
“Really, it’s just we’ve gotten to a point where we’re a mentally tough football team,” the Cowboys quarterback said during a conference call with New Orleans reporters. “In saying that, I believe when I step on the field in the fourth quarter, if we’re within 10-14 points, we’re going to find a way to win the ballgame.
“And we’ve been down, I don’t know, five times, six times this year and we’ve consistently come back and put ourselves in position. We’ve had a couple other ones where we could have come back in eight or nine of them, really. That’s just our mentality of what our football team believes late in football games. And that’s helped us.”

so how about being "mentally tough" and playing that way for four fucking quarters instead of 2 then? that'd be fantastic.
