Cowboys vs. Bears 2012: Who's to blame for Romo's picks?

Tony Romo had a disastrous Monday night versus Chicago, throwing five touchdowns, two of which were returned for touchdowns by the Bears' defense as the Cowboys fell to the Bears at home, 34-18.

Although Romo will be credited with all five interceptions, Tim Macmahon of ESPN Dallas feels that the first two should be blamed on the intended wide receivers Kevin Ogeltree and Dez Bryant.

While Ogeltree accepted responsibility for his mishap, Bryant offered MacMahon the following explanation:

"It was just the guy made a good play on the ball," Bryant said. "He kind of disguised what he was doing. What was called, if I was pressed, I was supposed to run deep. If he was off, I was supposed to run the stop route. He pressed and then he kind of bailed and stopped. I just felt like he made a good play on the ball."

Bryant finished the game with eight receptions for 125 yards but failed to find the end zone for the fourth consecutive game this season. Bryant has 21 receptions for 269 yards this season.
