Cowboys Top Giants In NFL Opener
Posted by Eric Lemus on Sep 6, 2012 - 12:26:02 PM

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—The Dallas Cowboys had a lot of time to sit and think about the way their 2011 season ended at the hands of the New York Giants. Wednesday night, they stormed into the home of their division rivals and took a bit of revenge against the Superbowl champions.

The Giants became the first defending champion to lose their first game of the season since the Denver Broncos in 1999, and the Cowboys improved to 6-0 all-time when opening the season against their bitter rivals.

As expected, both teams started off slow, and after a turnover from each side, Dallas went to halftime leading 7-3 in a defense-dominated first half.

Tony Romo took over the second half, however, and behind his unique stle of play, the Cowboys were able to put up 17 second-half points on a defense that had catapulted the Giants to a Superbowl win in February.

Romo threw for 307 yards and 3 touchdowns while overcoming an early interception. His favorite target on this night was not his all-wold tight end, pro bowl, wide out, or budding star receiver; instead Romo relied on Kevin Ogletree, who broke out with a career game, catching eight passes for 114 yards and 2 touchdowns. Running back Demarco Murray ran for 131 yards on 20 carries and the Dallas defense shined.

Eli Manning, who has become known for late comebacks, tried all he could, but drops from his receivers and a lack-luster running attack made it difficult to gain any momentum.

But a late scoring drive gave the Giants a shot at another come-from-behind win against the Cowboys. Down 7, the Cowboys needed to convert at least two first down to be able to cement a victory. Yet penalties, which plagued the Cowboys all game, made things much more difficult for Dallas.

Romo would once again lean on his new weapon, Ogletree to convert a third-and-long, and eventually seal the game.
