Romo chokes game away for Redskins.

LANDOVER, MD  — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has again added to his resume of fourth-quarter failures, this time for NFC East rival Washington Redskins.

Blows it again.
A talented-but-flawed gunslinger whose name has become synonymous with choking put on a dazzling display of defeat as he came up short once again. Romo's 10-yard touchdown pass to running back DeMarco Murray with only 1:08 remaining handed the Redskins their 12th loss in a season gone awry.

Unable to force a game-ending interception, Romo instead sealed the Redskins' fate for the seventh straight week.

"Can you believe that guy? It's like he doesn't even play for our team." lamented long-term Redskins linebacker London Fletcher.

The Redskins have found, much like the Cowboys, that leaning on Romo is quite a dubious endeavor.

Beet-faced Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was less critical of Romo's deficient play. "Sometimes you expect too much out of one player."
