Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys offense really didn't do much for most of the first half of their game against the Chicago Bears on Monday night. And they were better off that way.
Starting late in the second quarter, all but two of the Cowboys' next seven drives ended in interceptions thrown by Romo, as the Cowboys lost, 34-18, and dropped to a three-way tie for second in the NFC East at 2-1.
The five picks tied a career high for the Dallas quarterback, who now has eight interceptions and five touchdowns this season.
To Romo's credit, the other two drives in that stretch both ended in Cowboys scores, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to Miles Austin late in the first half. Even so, the Bears defense outscored Romo, 14-10, with Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs each returning an interception for a touchdown.
