NFL Picks Week 2:  Predicting Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones provided some much-needed encouragement for his quarterback, Tony Romo, saying that he felt Romo did a fine job on Sunday in the Cowboys' loss to the New York Jets.

That's very nice of Jones, and one can give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he fell asleep during the fourth quarter.

Romo played great for three-and-a-half quarters. Then came the fumble at the two-yard line and the interception thrown to Darrelle Revis. Romo blew a 14-point lead for the loss—the first time in franchise history the Cowboys had lost after leading by 14 in the fourth quarter.

Romo can shake his boots off and start anew this Sunday against the 49ers. He has a chance to boost his ego, provide some fireworks and ease the minds of Cowboys fans.

The 49ers are coming off of a terrific 33-17 victory against the Seattle Seahawks. Alex Smith quietly put together a decent game, throwing for 125 yards on 15-of-20 passing. Smith ran for a touchdown, avoided throwing an interception, but did fumble once.

Smith will be in for a challenge against the Cowboys.

Certain questions loom for the Cowboys/49ers game: Will Romo be fresh and mistake-free against the 49ers? Will Dez Bryant play well despite his thigh injury? Will the Cowboys corner back corps hold up despite its injuries?
