The Dallas Cowboys opened the season with an evenly matched game against the Washington Redskins. Neither team looked amazing, but the Cowboys seemed to show a very one sided attack letting Tony Romo pass 47 times while only handing off to their three solid backs 21 times. Despite both Barber and Romo averaging almost 5 yards per carry they continued to let Romo pass it.
The Cowboys eventually lost the hard fought game, but looked like they didn’t know how to mix up the offense, and the scoreboard showed it. The Cowboys didn’t look horrible, and could have won if it wasn't for a late penalty. The defense actually looked solid, but the offense just couldn’t score, which puts them ranked 3rd in the NFC East.
