GMC Never Say Never: Tony Romo

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo tossed three touchdown passes as the Cowboys shocked the defending Super Bowl champion Giants 24-17. His effort earned him the GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK for games played on September 5 to 10, the NFL announced Friday. The GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance.


When the Dallas Cowboys returned to the site of their season ending defeat to the New York Giants a season ago, they were hoping to change history. The defending Super Bowl champion had never lost in the current opening-game format in eight previous games. In addition, Super Bowl champions had won 12 consecutive season openers. Romo, however, was up to the challenge, tossing three touchdown passes as the Cowboys shocked the defending Super Bowl champion Giants 24-17.
