Or better titled: I'm starting Romo and T.O. and Nick Folk against Buffalo. How can I go wrong?
Which, really, I'm still asking myself. Starting that trio against Buffalo should have been the best plan ever, and yet it took Folk's last second (and for that matter, second) 53-yard field goal for me to win my fantasy matchup. The one week I decided to start Romo over Brady, and Romo nearly self-destructed with five interceptions and a fumble. Brady, of course, had his usual near-perfect game. This is what I get for taunting my friend who wanted me to trade Romo to him for Donovan McNabb.
I like Romo, though. One of the post-game interviews with him went something like this:
Reporter: How were you able to pull yourself together after you threw those four interceptions in the first half?
Romo: I had four interceptions in the first half?
Reporter: Yes. Well, actually, you had five overall, but only four in the first half.
Romo: Oh, I thought I had like seven in the first half.
Yes, the usually dismal Buffalo defense had five interceptions, two of which they ran back for touchdowns, and a fumble recovery. Special teams ran in another touchdown. Which means that the Buffalo offense, even with "the media drools all over me" Trent Edwards, mustered a mere three points. My husband was quite infuriated when he realized that he would have won his fantasy matchup had he started Buffalo's defense over Chicago's defense. Go figure.
