Then, with the ball at the Denver 2-yard line and nine seconds remaining, Dallas quarterback Tony Romo(notes) twice tested Champ Bailey(notes), the Broncos’ perennial All-Pro cornerback, by firing crisp passes to Hurd in the end zone.

Not since Romo’s infamous trip to Mexico before the Cowboys’ 2007 playoff defeat to the New York Giants had the quarterback made such a regrettable decision: Bailey broke up both throws, and the Broncos celebrated one of the most inconceivable 4-0 starts in recent NFL memory.
