Jessica Simpson was at Texas Stadium on Sunday to cheer on her new boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, as the heavily favored Cowboys played the Philadelphia Eagles.
Wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey with a pink number 9 (Romo’s number), Jessica watched from a luxury box with dad Joe Simpson, as Romo played the worst game of his career, losing to the Eagles 10-6.
The 27-year-old Pro Bowler threw three interceptions and fumbled the ball twice, earning him a quarterback rating of just 22.2. Romo’s average rating this year is over 100, with his previous low being when former girlfriend Carrie Underwood attended the game against the Eagles last December, which the Cowboys lost 23-7.
Some advice for Tony Romo? Leave the girlfriends at home!
"Just how bad is a rating of 22?" The short answer is, "Unbelievably bad." The long answer is this: imagine that you - yes, you reading this post - get called in to play one NFL down at QB. You line up in the shotgun, take a snap and heave the ball out of bounds. You retire from the game permanently with a QB rating of 40 - about double what Romo had yesterday.
