Quotes From NFL GameDay Highlights & NFL GameDay Final

“Tony [Romo] was the man tonight because he took a beating and kept getting back up and made the plays he needed to make to win the football game.” – Michael Irvin on the Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo who was 19/31 for 293 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-20 win over the Detroit Lions

“If you leave it to a one-possession game, [Tony Romo] has got that special something that can make plays for you and we saw it right down the stretch.” – Kurt Warner on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo

“We saw vintage Tony Romo. What does that mean? It means there were those plays where you’re pulling your hair and going, ‘Tony what are you doing in this situation?’ But then there’s what you saw on that last drive where he had some great reads and you’re going, ‘Ah that’s what you’re trying to get at.’” – Kurt Warner on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo

“This defensive line of the Detroit Lions earned their ranking today and showed us that they are for real.” – Marshall Faulk on the Detroit Lions defensive line who totaled six total sacks against the Dallas Cowboys

“When [the Dallas Cowboys] intercepted that ball right after the half, that defense got life…That was a huge play emotionally for the Dallas Cowboys.” – Deion Sanders on the Dallas Cowboys defense starting the second half with an interception

“[DeMarcus Lawrence] is the one guy that [the Dallas Cowboys] said they’re waiting on to get the pressure on the quarterback for them to get to the next level.” – Michael Irvin on Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence

“The only thing I don’t like about the games in Green Bay is you can put six points on the board for the home team already because of the inclement weather. The weather in Green Bay is ridiculous.” – Deion Sanders on the Green Bay Packers’ home field advantage

“When you look at how Dallas plays football, the ability to run the football, they can win in the cold. I’m not worried about that part. The question is going to be once again can the Dallas defensive line get after Aaron Rodgers? If you can’t, it’s going to be like extended handoffs.” – Marshall Faulk on the Dallas Cowboys heading into Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers

“I don’t see Green Bay stopping that running attack from the Dallas Cowboys.” – Deion Sanders on the Cowboys-Packers game next weekend

“[Andrew Luck] is a tremendous talent. There is no question about it he is the future of the quarterback position in the National Football League. However, just like Andy Dalton, the one thing that was sitting over his head was the fact that he turned the ball over a lot and he took that away today.” – Jamie Dukes on Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck who was 31/44 for 376 yards, one touchdown and zero turnovers

“What Andrew Luck has done in Indianapolis, it’s impressive. The guy has won 11 games in three consecutive years. You get to the playoffs, you’re winning games and he’s all by himself…Nobody threatens me on the Colts team.” – Marshall Faulk Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck who beat the Cincinnati Bengals 26-10 and move on to face the Denver Broncos next weekend

“What we’re seeing in Andy Dalton is he is a guy that is a solid quarterback but he doesn’t have the dynamic to take this team to the next level. So when I look at the Cincinnati Bengals, I see them in a position where they’re kind of in no man’s land…I think he’s very limited and I don’t see an upside to where he can do something special to get you to where you need to be.” – Jamie Dukes on Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton who was 18/35 for 155 yards

“Terrell Suggs is making a statement that I learned from Ray [Lewis]. Yeah we had Ed [Reed], but this is my defense and my team. I love what he’s doing right now.” – Marshall Faulk on Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs

“I believe that the Denver Broncos defense has to win this game for them. They assimilated, they got some parts and those parts have to show up in this game against Andrew Luck. It can’t be all on Peyton Manning and his arm outscoring Andrew Luck.” – Marshall Faulk on the Denver Broncos defense

“I think Carolina has a chance because what Carolina does is a lot [like] what the Cowboys do: they can run the ball now…And you have something else in your passing game and they have that something else being Cam Newton, that something else being [Kelvin Benjamin]…They do have a shot to go in there and steal that game.” – Michael Irvin on the Panthers-Seahawks matchup Saturday, January 10 at 8:15 PM ET
