Dallas Cowboys fans, are you guys ready for some unnecessary drama? Today the team announced that for the first time this season, Tony Romo will take the field this Sunday against the Eagles in the regular season finale. Dak Prescott is still expected to start but both Romo and Mark Sanchez will get some snaps as well.

Prescott will start because he has a chance to break the NFL record for wins in a season by a rookie quarterback but after that it will be the Romo show. Coach Jason Garrett has not said just how much Romo will play but he will be on the field.

It will be the first regular season action for Romo since Thanksgiving of last year when he suffered a broke collarbone against the Panthers.

Prescott has obviously done a great job with Romo sidelined. He has a 13-2 record and needs one more win to set an NFL record for wins in a season by a rookie quarterback. He has completed 307 of 451 passes for 3,630 yards with 23 touchdowns and four interceptions.

The decision to play Romo could be beneficial if they wind up needing him in the playoffs for whatever reason. It’s better to get some of that rust off now but we all know how things get in Dallas. All it will take is for Romo to play very well this Sunday for the chatter to begin again about maybe he should be the one starting. Dak, however, doesn’t appear interested in ever giving the reigns back.
