IRVING, Texas — So much for Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys having extra time to savor something good.

Instead of a three-game winning streak, Dallas (2-2) began its bye week and extra time before playing again after the biggest collapse in the team's 52-season history.

Coach Jason Garrett insisted Monday that the Cowboys will treat the 34-30 loss to Detroit the same way they do any other game — win or lose.

After they watch the film, they will "put this one to bed and go forward."

The one difference this week is players were off Monday, and won't watch the film until Tuesday.

Garrett also says there's no lost faith in Romo. Three second-half interceptions led to three touchdowns for the Lions, who overcame a 24-point deficit.
