SAN FRANCISCO – On the Cowboys first offensive play in overtime, Romo faked a handoff, looked downfield and noticed a wide open Jesse Holley sprinting down the middle of the field. There were zero Niners defenders near him. Where were they?
After the game, Carlos Rogers explained the breakdown, saying he was at fault. Here’s what he said.
Q: What was the breakdown on that last play in Overtime?
ROGERS: We were in a cover 4. I need to stay deep. They ran the play action towards me. Donte had it right to go down – I needed to be staying deep.
