Cowboys defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin understands his unit's role in what transpired at JerrahWorld.
"We've got to play better, that's for sure," Kiffin said Wednesday, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "The other night was not good, and we just go back to work and get better.
"I want to say this: People will say 'Tony Romo throws the interception, and he can't win the big one.' He went toe-to-toe with one of the best ever in the game of football and (Manning) will be in the Hall of Fame. But don't put that on (Romo). You put that one on me, but don't put that one on Tony Romo. We've got to play better. We do."
The Cowboys rank 28th in total defense and are on pace to allow 6,547 yards this season. That figure would obliterate the team-record 5,687 yards the D surrendered last season.
But yeah, it's all Romo's fault.
