Quarterback Tony Romo signed a six-year, $108-million contract extension with the Dallas Cowboys on Friday. That means the 32-year-old quarterback -- who turns 33 next month -- with only one playoff victory for “America's Team” could be the Cowboys' gun-slinging starter under contract until 2019. “I think it's just exciting more than anything that you know you're going to be here the rest of [your] career,” Romo said in a video interview on the Cowboys' official website . Romo's new deal includes $55 million in guaranteed money.

Tony Romo reportedly has yet to start negotiating a new contract with the Dallas Cowboys. But that doesn't mean that the team's starting quarterback for the last seven seasons isn't part of the organization's plans for the future. "Tony is a key piece of what we're about going forward," Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones said Tuesday, via ESPNDallas. "We're certainly going to be looking at his situation [in] time. " Romo is a three-time Pro Bowl selection who has led the Cowboys to a 55-38 record as a starter.

Robert Griffin III has gone to the playoffs every year of his NFL career. OK, so RG3 has only been in the league one year, but it's still a pretty impressive accomplishment for a rookie quarterback to lead his team into the post-season. Especially if that is the Washington Redskins, who haven't played beyond the regular season in five years and needed seven straight wins down the stretch to punch their ticket this year. Tony Romo has only been to the playoffs three times in his seven seasons as the Dallas Cowboys' starting quarterback.

The Dallas Cowboys had another mediocre season, losing to the Washington Redskins on Sunday night with a playoff berth on the line. Former Cowboys Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin, now analysts for the NFL Network, had some strong words for Tony Romo, whose tenure as the Cowboys' quarterback has been disappointing. In his career, Romo is now 1-6 for the Cowboys with the playoffs on the line. "[Cowboys owner] Jerry Jones said it earlier, if you're not in the playoffs, it's not a successful season," Irvin said.

Former Detroit Lions tackle Lomas Brown says he regrets the incident in 1994 when he intentionally missed a block to get his own quarterback, Scott Mitchell, hurt badly enough that he would be forced to leave the game. Brown made the startling admission in an ESPN radio interview last week, sparking a controversy that had Mitchell calling Brown “reprehensible.” "I know I played well over 18,000 plays … in this league,” Brown said this week on ESPN's "First Take. " “It's one play out of the 18,000 that I regret.

Cowboys veteran Tony Romo and Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III each will face a tremendous amount of pressure to produce Sunday in a regular-season finale whose winner will capture the NFC East Division title. If Dallas loses, it doesn't make the playoffs. Washington can lose and still advance to the postseason with losses by Chicago and Minnesota, which seems unlikely and practically makes the Cowboys-Redskins game a winner-take-all proposition. Romo is often maligned for failing to win big games.

In April, three rounds after they made Robert Griffin III the second pick in the draft, the Washington Redskins selected Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins. A lot of people scratched their heads at that. Why would a team with plenty of holes to fill use another pick on a quarterback? Sunday, that move looked brilliant. With Griffin sidelined by a stomach-turning right knee injury, Cousins came off the bench to erase an eight-point deficit in the final minute, setting up a 31-28 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens that was clinched by Kai Forbath's 34-yard field goal.

The Dallas Cowboys play at Atlanta on Sunday in a game featuring a question-mark quarterback. Yes, he's shown flashes of excellence, but is he truly the player who can lift his franchise to greatness? Does success early in the season mean anything if he hasn't gotten the job done in the biggest games? The game's other quarterback is Tony Romo. OK, so it's stretching the truth to imply that Atlanta's Matt Ryan is under scrutiny. He and the undefeated Falcons are off to a terrific start - unlike the 3-4 Cowboys - and Ryan has the NFL's third-best passer rating at 103.0.

Tony Romo had a career day on Sunday. At least that's what some people are saying about the Dallas Cowboys quarterback's performance against the New York Giants. And those people are absolutely correct. His 437 passing yards are the most Romo has thrown for in his seven years as the Cowboys' starter. He also set a franchise record with 62 passing attempts, and if his late pass to Dez Bryant in the end zone hadn't been reversed, Romo would have set a new team mark with 474 passing yards.
