NASHVILLE, TN – The Cowboys needed a win in week two to avoid their first 0-2 start since 2010. Well, the game started a lot like last week with turnovers, sacks and all around poor play.
But, the Cowboys overcame those early difficulties and made a big statement win over the Tennessee Titans 26-10, to even their record at 1-1.
DeMarco Murray had another great day on the ground, recovering from his early fumble to gain 167-yards and score a touchdown. This time he got the win to show for it.
Dan Bailey was also at his best, knocking down four field goals, all of them from 44 yards out or longer. It was far from Tony Romo’s greatest day, but he got the job done, throwing for 176 yards, a touchdown, a no picks.
Romo’s favorite target, Dez Bryant, pulled in 103 of those passing yards on ten catches, as well as the three yard touchdown strike late in the third quarter.
Hey, even that defense that everyone was saying would be the worst ever did its part to help notch the first win of 2014, picking off Titans QB Jake Locker twice as notching two sacks.
The Titans rallied from a 16-0 halftime deficit to make it 16-10 midway through the third quarter, but that was as close as they would get as they drop to 1-1 on their season.
Now, the Cowboys can look ahead to the St. Louis Rams, and the chance to build on some early season momentum.
