The following week in a 41-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Manning threw four interceptions and had three of them returned for touchdowns. He continued to struggle until the last game of the season, against the 15-0 New England Patriots.

Alleluia

Allelouiariaallelouiarionalleluia verse
In the Roman Rite the word "Alleluia" is associated with joy and is especially favoured in Paschal time, the time between Easter and Pentecost, perhaps because of the association of the Hallel (Alleluia psalms) chanted at Passover. During this time, the word is added widely to verses and responses associated with prayers, to antiphons of psalms, and, during the Octave of Easter and on Pentecost Sunday, to the dismissal at the end of Mass ("Ite missa est"). On the other hand, the word "Alleluia" is excluded from the Roman liturgy during Lent, often euphemistically referred to during this time as the "A-word".

Dallas CowboysDAL2016
This was also QB Tony Romo's last season in the NFL, as he announced his retirement on April 4, 2017. Coming into the offseason the Cowboys had a few positions that concerned them as a result of injuries, suspensions, and players potentially leaving the team. The positions that were of most concern were quarterback, defensive back, and pass rusher. The Cowboys had a total of eighteen players entering the free agency, which meant the players were free to negotiate with and sign a contract to play with any team in the league.

Terence Newman

Dan Bailey (American football)

Dan Bailey
With 32 seconds left, Tony Romo completed a four-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant, but because the following two-point conversion failed, Bailey had to make an onside kick. Dallas recovered the kick, but his 51-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right with six seconds remaining. The following game (Week 7, October 21) against the Carolina Panthers, Bailey kicked 28 and 38-yard field goals within the final four minutes in Dallas' 19-14 victory. In the Week 11 (November 18) 23-20 overtime win over the Cleveland Browns, he made the game tying 32-yard field goal with two seconds left in regulation and the winning 38-yard field goal in overtime.

Brad Johnson (American football)

Triodion

Lenten TriodiontriodeTriodi
The book contains the propers for the fasting period preceding Easter and for the weeks leading up to the fast. The canons for weekday Matins in the Triodion contain only three odes and so are known as "triodes" after which the Triodion takes its name. The period which the book covers extends from the Sunday of the Publican and Pharisee (the tenth week before Pascha (Easter): twenty-two days before the beginning of Great Lent), and concludes with the Midnight Office of Holy Saturday.

Jon Kitna

In 2009, the Dallas Cowboys acquired him to be Tony Romo's primary back-up, with rookie Stephen McGee as the third-string quarterback. He did not play a single down for the Cowboys in the 2009 season. Kitna remained idle until October 25, 2010, when Romo was placed on the injured reserve list, after suffering a broken clavicle. Kitna ended up injuring himself on December 25, 2010, in a game against the Arizona Cardinals. Kitna played well in relief of Romo throwing for 2,365 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in the 9 games he started, compiling a 4-5 record and a career-high 88.9 passer rating in the process.

2007 Green Bay Packers season

Green Bay Packers2007GB

In the first quarter, Green Bay took the early lead as rookie kicker Mason Crosby completed a 47-yard field goal. On the first play of the Cowboys opening drive, Al Harris stripped the ball from Terrell Owens and side judge Laird Hayes signaled Green Bay ball, but head linesman Derick Bowers overruled him.

2012 Dallas Cowboys season

Dallas CowboysDAL2012
Dallas quarterback Tony Romo had a horrifically forgettable game, tossing 5 interceptions, including 2 that were run back for touchdowns by the ferocious Bears defense. With the loss, the Cowboys fell into 2–3 and dropped to 0–4 all-time against the Ravens. Horrible clock management by head coach Jason Garrett on the final drive left Dallas' kicker with a 50+ yard field goal attempt that he pushed wide as time expired. The Cowboys beat the Panthers for the first time in five years to improve to a .500 record. With the loss, the Cowboys fell to 3–4 on the season and 0–4 at Cowboys Stadium against the Giants.

Carlos Rogers (American football)

Carlos Rogers
From that point forward, Rogers and the Washington defense held T.O. to two receptions on eight pass attempts, including three passes in a row from Tony Romo to T.O. into Rogers's coverage at the beginning of the 4th quarter - all incompletions. Redskins won 26-24 and the game was chosen as the NFL Films Game of the Week. Rogers acquired 7 tackles (6 solo) during the game, which was the high for the team that game and Rogers' high for the entire year. Rogers played in all 16 regular season games for the first time in his career, with 14 starts. He finished the season with 53 tackles (45 individual), two interceptions, 77 interception return yards, and one fumble recovery.
