At NBC, I broke down Tony Romo’s passes by the distance they have traveled in the air:

  • Behind the line to 4 yards: 57-for-65 for 351 yards – 89.2 passer rating
  • 5 to 9 yards: 54-for-75 for 506 yards, 2 TD, 3 INT – 82.4 passer rating
  • 10 to 14 yards: 14-for-29 for 218 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT – 56.4 passer rating
  • 15 to 19 yards: 17-for-29 for 324 yards, 2 TD, 2 INT – 91.7 passer rating
  • 20-plus yards: 10-for-20 for 253 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT – 114.6 passer rating
The majority of Romo’s passes (64.2 percent) have been nine yards or fewer. Through six games, only 9.0 percent of Romo’s passes have traveled at least 20 yards in the air. Nonetheless, Romo’s passer rating of 114.6 on deep throws again ranks among the best in the NFL.

Read it all at NBC.
