Cowboys vs. Chargers, Preseason Week 2: 5 Things to Watch
In my latest installment of “Breaking Down the ‘Boys” at Dallas Morning News, I previewed the Cowboys’ Week 2 preseason tilt with the San Diego Chargers, breaking down five things to watch.
5. Will the Cowboys continue to throw deep?
On Monday night, Tony Romo threw the ball at least 10 yards on three of his six passes, and two of them sailed 18 yards or more. That’s something I love to see, considering only 6.6 percent of Romo’s 2011 passes traveled 20 or more yards—good for just 37th in the NFL.
Romo was absolutely dynamite on deep passes last season, racking up a 55.2 completion percentage and 125.4 passer rating on throws of 20-plus yards. Even with the shaky offensive line, Jason Garrett should be dialing up more bombs.
