Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has apparently suffered a fractured clavicle (collarbone) during the first half of the Cowboys-Giants game.
Based on a quick look at comparable injuries, chances are that Romo's out for the season. Most fractured clavicles are season-ending injuries. The best-case scenario -- assuming Romo's clavicle actually is fractured and not just bruised -- has Romo back in about six weeks. One player who was able to come back from a fractured clavicle in about that timeframe is Chad Ochocinco, who did so as a rookie.

This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
