Exactly 10 years ago Friday, Tony Romo let a snap go through his hands that will define the Cowboys quarterback’s career.

During the 2006 Cowboys/Seahawks wildcard game, 9-7 Dallas set up for what would have been the game tying field goal from only 19 yards out with a minute and change remaining in the game. Romo, the holder at the time, couldn’t handle the snap, getting chased down just short of the goal line just inches short.

Here’s how it looked from a fan’s perspective.
