NFL Week 8 as told by tweets
The Cowboys are the gift that keeps on giving for tweeters. Their miserable day explained in the 'NFL as told by tweets.'
Each Sunday we'll recap the week that was in the NFL with the top tweets from across Twitter.
Who had a worse day, Tony Romo or Dez Bryant? Let's have Twitter decide.

Chiefs the first team since 1940 not to lead a game in regulation through 7 games. Yikes.— gregg rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) October 28, 2012
Technically that is not an interception, just a failed 2-point conversion attempt. That was Tim Jennings' first TD of the season. #Bears— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) October 28, 2012
The Steelers throwback uniforms were atrocious.
Those #Steeler uniforms should have "Allegheny County Bureau of Corrections" stamped on the back.— Lynn Pounian (@Panger2012) October 28, 2012

Perhaps the best game-winning touchdown you'll see this year.
If it wins Ochocinco's approval for a touchdown celebration, you know the Gronk toy-soldier spike was great.
Rob Gronkowski just had the best touchdown celebration for the year regardless to what's done from this point on... #hilarious— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) October 28, 2012
