Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo gave his assessment of the Denver Broncos secondary in anticipation of their matchup Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex.
Romo, who has thrown for 1,015 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception, said the Broncos' secondary "do a great job with their hands."
"They grab, they hold, they've almost put a lot of pressure on the refs – whether or not they're going to call the game close or not," Romo said, via USA Today. "If they get called once or twice, that's a good thing. But they're all over guys as far as using the little tricks, I guess you could say, that good linebackers and good secondaries use when they're playing man coverage."
