After throwing three interceptions during Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, pretty much everyone, including Tony Romo, blamed Tony Romo for the Dallas Cowboys season-ending loss. "I feel as though I let my team down," Romo said after the game.

But at least RG3 has his back. According to ProFootballTalk, cameras from Showtime's "Inside the NFL" caught Romo receiving a hug and a few words of encouragement from his much younger opponent after the game.

"Hey, Tony. I just wanted to say to you don't listen to what anybody else is saying about you. You're a great quarterback, man. This game doesn't mean anything," the 22-year-old rookie told the 32-year-old Romo.

Though Dallas head coach Jason Garrett told The Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the team still had faith in Romo, plenty of Cowboys fans had harsher reactions. Here's a video, uploaded immediately after the loss, of two fans burning a Romo jersey with a blow torch. [Video contains strong language.]
