The Dallas Cowboys beat the reining Super Bowl Champs the New York Giants, 24-17. I literally can’t believe that this actually happened. I’m not sure anyone saw it coming . . . Cowboys quarterback and perpetual non-closure, Tony Romo, threw for 307 yards and three touchdowns. Not only that but Romo completed 22-of-29 passes and had an interception. Dare I say Romo is tried of not winning and maybe he is actually going to be great this season. On top of that Cowboys’ wide receiver Kevin Ogletree came out of nowhere to get the first two touchdowns of his career. Ogletree, who was a back-up, caught eight balls for 114 yards. Even Cowboys’ Jason Witten who was not expected to play because of a lacerated spleen hit the field. Witten finished with two receptions for 10 yards, which is pretty good for a guy in recovery. Not to mention Cowboys’ running back DeMarco Murray who rushed for 131 yards.
I don’t want to excite Cowboys fans too much because this was only the first game of season but there might actually be post-season hope this season. So what exactly happened to the Giants tonight?
Giants’ Eli Manning was sacked three times and never seemed to pull things together. Even as my friends were saying he was going to pull together a run at the end of the game, it just didn’t happen. Than break out star wide receiver, Victor Cruz, was having a terrible night. Cruz had three drops and two penalties. This left Cruz with just six receptions for 58 yards, imagine what would have happened if he had held onto the ball.
So to sum it up, it was not a good night for the Giants but a very good night for the Cowboys.
