Bob LeGere at the Daily Herald compares their rise to stardom.
Romo wasn’t given the keys to the car until he served a three-year apprenticeship in Dallas, during which he failed to throw a single pass. That lengthy learning process wasn’t surprising, considering he was signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois University.
Since then, Romo has started 56 games; Cutler has started 54.
Fantasy Bet: Romo 1 TD, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
