Mic pics up Tony Romo's bold message to Tom Brady after Cowboys loss

When the clock ran down on Sunday evening at Dallas' AT&T Stadium, the two franchise leaving the field appeared to be heading in different directions in the 2015 season.

A 30-6 win for the Patriots saw the reigning Super Bowl champs remain undefeated on the year, whilst the Cowboys were handed their third straight loss and now sit on a 2-3 record heading into their bye week.


But, whilst injury trouble and defeat may have poured water on many Cowboy fans' preseason hopes, it looks like Tony Romo is remaining upbeat. That's after a microphone picked up the quarterback delivering an optimistic message to Tom Brady in the aftermath of Sunday's game.

Picked up on audio by the 'Inside the NFL' show, Romo, meeting Brady in the middle of the field during the customary post-game handshake, can be heard telling the Super Bowl MVP, "I'll see you in February."

Romo's reference to a Cowboys vs Patriots Super Bowl clash was likely simply an ice-breaker, and, judging by Brady's lack of reaction in the accompanying Vine, it doesn't seem to have registered with the Patriots star.

Considering Dallas' current predicament, however, it will likely register with their fans, and their rivals.

Hopes fading?

Heading into the 2015 season, 'America's Team' were considered a sleeper pick to reach the NFL's primetime game. But, with injuries affecting their offense, few would now put them in the picture at this stage.

Fans then will be glad to see that, while many may have written them off after five weeks of the campaign, their quarterback remains confident. 

One thing is for sure, the Cowboys will stand a lot better chance of playing football in February if they can get Romo, and receiver Dez Bryant, back onto the gridiron in the near future.
