The Dallas Cowboys just defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 20-10 this Sunday but this victory came at a heavy price as it left quarterback Tony Romo on the injured list.
During the third quarter of the game against Philadelphia, Romo was injured on a sack leaving him with a broken left collarbone. This is very bad timing for the Cowboys as he joins Dez Bryant on the injured list. This is not the first time that Romo suffered a collarbone injury. Back in the 2010 season, he missed the season after receiving his injury during week 7 of the regular NFL season.
Bryant became injured last week with a foot injury and is expected to miss at least 6 weeks after his surgery.
Romo was knocked out of the game when Jordan Hicks sacked him leading to Fletcher Cos recovering Romo’s fumble.
A majority of online sports bettors who placed a straight bet on the money line expected the Eagles to beat the Cowboys with a -2 line according to this online sportsbook. The win by the Cowboys came as a shock to many. Eagles fanes were holding their breath in the fourth quarter but it was the ends when Bradford threw another interception in the fourth quarter when the ball bounced off the hands of Eagles’ tight end, Zack Ertz.
Overall, both teams could be seen struggling in term of offense as Dallas led the match 6-0 during the first half of the game. In the end, the NFL betting went to the underdog leaving the sportsbook with a tidy profit.
