"It was a team effort tonight and we didn't get the job done," Newman said. "The defense didn't play very good. The offense didn't play very good. It's not just one thing. We're not bad cornerbacks. (Romo) isn't a bad quarterback. We're not a bad team. But we played poor tonight. You can't win like that."
