Miles Austin: B+
Miles Austin was quiet for most of the night, until he had a beautiful leaping catch and turned it into a 34-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. In his first real action this season, Austin finished the night with four catches for 73-yards and one touchdown.
Miles struggled a bit tonight to get open and he is going to have to find a way to get better separation from coverage so that he can provide Tony Romo a better target.
Dez Bryant: A-
Dez Bryant finished the game with 85-yards on four catches and although he might not have scored a touchdown, he provided the offensive spark the Cowboys needed. Late in the second quarter with the Cowboys trailing 3-0, Bryant made a nice catch on a 38-yard pass from Tony Romo setting up the Cowboys first touchdown of the game.
Murray also seems to be grasping the team concept as he was seen blocking down field on several running plays.
Kevin Ogletree: A+
If you did not know Kevin Ogletree’s name heading into the game, you better know it now. Ogletree’s eight catch, 114-yard, two touchdown performance will provide the Cowboys some comfort after the team allowed WR Laurent Robinson to depart via free agency.
On his first 10-yard touchdown catch, Ogletree saw that quarterback Tony Romo was in trouble. As Romo scrambled out of the pocket, Ogletree broke off his route and split two defenders on his way to the back of the end zone, providing Romo a clean target for the easy score. On his second touchdown catch, a forty-yard bomb, Ogletree used a sweet double move on Corey Webster to get open on the play.
Not only was Ogletree fantastic catching the ball, he threw a few great blocks during some of DeMarco Murray's runs.
