Cowboys' Tony Romo tweets video from Major League

From where they stand today, the two-win Dallas Cowboys have a better shot at the No. 1 overall pick than a playoff berth -- but don't tell that to Tony Romo.

Expected to start Sunday after missing seven games with a broken collarbone, Romo on Tuesday threw down the gauntlet on Twitter in hopes of rallying his 2-7 squad:

This is social-media GOAT material, with Romo digging deep into the vault -- Major League! -- to lift a Cowboys team currently on life support.

It's not impossible, at least not mathematically. While the Cowboys buried themselves with an outrageous seven straight losses during Romo's absence, Dallas sits just three wins behind the Giants (5-5) in the topsy-turvy NFC East.

The Cowboys likely need to win out, starting with a victory on Sunday over the Dolphins before upcoming must-win tilts against the Panthers, Packers, Jets and Bills, along with two games against the division-foe Redskins.

Still, why not dream? Romo already deserves some type of MVP consideration for showing how valuable he is to this team. Taking them to the brink would only seal it.
