Cowboys Can't Shake Gloom of Late Season Flops

IRVING (December 31, 2012) -- Tony Romo sat alone on the Dallas bench, his stare frozen at the ground on a cold night in Washington.

Any number of things could have been going through the mind of the Cowboys quarterback in the final minutes of a 28-18 loss to the Redskins on Sunday night. It was his third playoffs-or-bust failure in five years in a finale against an NFC East rival.

Romo's late interception helped Washington clinch the win, six years after his famous flub on what could have been the game-winning field goal in his first playoff game in 2006.

Tight end Jason Witten's declaration in training camp that it "can't be the same story" proved haunting. A year ago, the Cowboys lost to the New York Giants in the same scenario.
