Dallas came through on Wednesday as the NFL kicked off the 2012 season with Dallas playing the divisional rival New York Giants. Dallas was picked by no one to get the win and for pretty good reason. The Giants are coming off a Super Bowl win and were playing at home in front of 80,000 fans Wednesday. Furthermore, since the NFL began starting off the season with the Super Bowl champs playing at home no Super Bowl team has lost. Dallas came into the game with a line no one thought could hold up to any team in the NFL let alone the great front 4 of the Giants.
The line would hold up though at Tony Rome was able to step up and have a huge game. He started off very slow getting sacked early and intercepted. The Dallas D also came through and displayed a front 4 of their own that looked better then that of the Giants. Behind the strong Defense Romo was able to calm down and use a solid running game and breakout wide receiver performance to get the win.
Murray ran hard for Dallas and made some more manageable chances for Dallas. The story of the day though was Dallas WR Ogletree making play after play as he got on everyone’s fantasy football radar Wednesday. Ogletree ended the game with 180 plus yards and two touchdowns. Romo went over 300 yards in the game and had three touchdowns in all.
