During heyday of the Ron Rivera-Cam Newton era, the Carolina Panthers had a pretty ferocious defensive unit. Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys felt that in full force at home during this game on Thanksgiving of 2015.

This is one Tony will want to forget about. The then-undefeated Panthers buried the Cowboys quickly in Dallas, and Newton's offense barely had to lift a finger.

Trailing, 13-3, toward the end of the first half, Romo tried to get something going for the stagnant Dallas offense. Luke Kuechly put an end to that quickly, though, intercepting Romo on back-to-back passes, even returning the first for a touchdown. That was actually Romo's second pick-six of the day.

Carolina ended up dominating this game 33-14, and Romo finished 11-of-21 with 106 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions before being benched in favor of Matt Cassel.
