Tony Romo may not be able to keep his hands on the football at key moments in the playoffs, but he seems qualified to grip Jessica Simpson firmly at all times.

While we recognize that the above joke is dated - Romo has emerged as one of the NFL's best this year, leading Dallas to an 11-1 mark - the latter portion of the wisecrack remains accurate. He and Jessica are goin' nuts with the PDA!
