Before we get to the Dallas Cowboys-New York Giants matchup, let’s take a quick look at some other stats.
Steelers total QB ratings for the entire season.
Average QB rating 66.7
To this point Tony Romo has only started 38 games. So I thought it would be fun to compare him to Troy Aikman at the 38 game mark. Both QB’S played 2 1/2 seasons for 38 games.
Troy 89/90/91 and Tony 06/07/08.
Tony has thrown 77 tds and has had 43ints or a +34
Troy had thrown 31 tds and had 31 ints or a -15
Romo leads all active QB’S except Peyton Manning and Tom Brady
Now on to the Giants. This game is a bigger challenge than Pittsburgh. Why? Because the Giants aren’t just a defensive team. They are ranked ahead of the Cowboys on offense and defense. The QB’S seem pretty even.

Giants No. 7 16 ints Cowboys No. 29 6 ints (pathetic)
Penalties. We finally play a team as bad as we are in penalties.
