Dallas vs. Baltimore: Report Card Grades for Each Cowboys Unit
Matt Strasen/Associated Press

The Dallas Cowboys ended up on the wrong side of a 37-30 score against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday. However, the Cowboys had a great deal of impressive individual performances. 

Tony Romo and the first-team offense only played in 14 snaps and had a mixed bag of success. The first series had a disastrous end as Romo mishandled the handoff to DeMarco Murray, which resulted in a fumble that was returned by the Ravens for a touchdown. 

However, the first-team offense bounced back in a big way on the second series. The Cowboys went 83 yards on nine plays, the last of which was a beautiful back-shoulder fade from Romo to Dez Bryant for a 31-yard touchdown. 

While it wasn't surprising that the first-team offense looked excellent, it was surprising how well the first-team defense did. 

The final score may lead one to believe that the defense did a poor job; however, the Cowboys offense and special teams gave up two touchdowns. The defense held strong throughout the game and made huge strides from the previous week.

The Cowboys also showed a fair amount of fight throughout the game. At the beginning of the third quarter, they were down 34-10, but they fought back and made a game of it late in the fourth quarter. 

Even though the Cowboys lost, there was a great deal of positive aspects to build off moving forward. 

With that said, here are the grades for each positional unit on America's Team.
