Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys had an epic meltdown in the second half against the Packers on Sunday, giving up a 23-point halftime lead.
Romo threw two interceptions in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter, and the Cowboys gave up their five-point lead in epic fashion. After Romo’s second interception of the quarter, Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant apparently couldn’t stomach watching his team give up the game, and he headed back to the locker room with 1:21 left on the clock.
Bryant is known for showing his emotions on the sidelines, but it appears this time he opted to storm off in a huff and sulk in private — while his team was still playing a game. After the loss, Bryant clarified on Twitter that he hadn’t left the sidelines because things weren’t going his team’s way, but because his emotions got the best of him.
I walked back to the locker room because I was emotional...it had nothing to do with my teammates we had it... We fought and didn't finish—

Bryant didn’t talk to reporters after the game in the locker room, instead just shaking his head at them after his 153-yard, one-touchdown performance.
