Dallas Falls in the Season Opener 28-17 to San Fransisco
Tony Romo did not see his season opener going the way it did, especially in the first half. By the time these two teams were heading to the second half of Sunday's game, the Cowboys were down 28-3 and Romo (pictured on the right) had already thrown three interceptions. The turnovers started early, from the second play of the game as a matter of fact, when the 49ers returned a DeMarco Murray fumble 35 yards for a touchdown, which was the start of creating a hole that few teams could hope to climb out of.
“Tony’s done a really good job of that in recent years – taking care of the ball. He didn’t do a good job of that today,” Dallas head coach Jason Garrett said. Garrett and company could not climb out of that hole they dug despite the defense shutting out Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers offense in the second half. They went on to lose the game by a final score of 28-17. “The biggest issue in this game, simple game, you can’t give a team like that four opportunities by giving the ball away,” Garrett said. “Obviously, one of them resulted in a touchdown.”
Dallas will look to earn their first win of the season next week when they head to Tennessee to take on the Titans next Sunday. Kickoff for that game is set for noon from LP Field in Tennessee and can be seen on FOX.
