I'll have an in-depth preview of the Eagles/Cowboys Monday night affair up on Monday, but for now, I thought I'd take a look back on pretty boy Tony Romo's career against the Eagles.
First, my all time favorite Romo moment (Romoment?)
Yes, it doesn't get much sweeter than that botched kick. OK, well, maybe it does get a little sweeter
. Don't worry, Deadspin says it's OK
to be happy about it.
After the jump we'll take a look at Romo's history with the Eagles, game by game.
He's played three games against Philly in his career. He's lost twice in Dallas, and he beat them once in Philly (the beatdown was ugly). Here's a game-by-game look at the three.
Christmas Day, 2006 @ Dallas
The Eagles were battling the Cowboys for the division title on their way to the playoffs. Tony Romo had taken over for Drew Bledsoe and was the toast of the town, until he met the Birds. Romo was also a big part of the best blog ever created
. Here's Romo's line from the Eagles' 23-7 win:
Here's a great photo to remember the game by.

This game ended the Eagles playoff hopes in 2007, as far as I was concerned. Romo and the Cowboys raped the Eagles at the Linc 38-17. Romo was unbelievable in this one. Obviously an outlier.

The Eagles were out of the playoffs and they took their anger out on Romo. They pummeled Tony in front of his new skank lady friend, Jessica Simpson, and Brian Westbrook sealed the 10-6 win by kneeling down on the 1 yard-line to allow the Eagles to run out the clock.
As you can see, as Romo goes, so go the Boys when they're playing the Eagles. Put him on his back, make him move his feet and you can beat this team. I don't think Monday's game will be any different.
