Tony Romo Nudges Football With Foot in Attempt to Trick Refs Into Giving Cowboys First Down (Video)

The Cowboys didn’t quite get a first down against the Vikings on Sunday, but that wasn’t going to stop Tony Romo from trying to push the ball up the field well after the whistle was blown.

The referees spotted the ball, but it wasn’t quite to Romo’s liking. So, the Cowboys quarterback nudged the ball up with his foot.

The reactions to Romo’s action are priceless. Line judge Jeff Bergman gave Romo a disappointed glance and Jared Allen essentially mimed displeasure.

Check out Romo’s not-so-smooth move in the video below.
