Dallas Cowboys Hold On To Defeat The New York Giants In The 2012 NFL Season Opener
The Dallas Cowboys held on in the 4th quarter to beat the defending Super Bowl champions the New York Giants in the 2012 NFL season opener.
America’s team the Dallas Cowboys did something they couldn’t do in the previous years, and that’s hold on to win in the 4th quarter. They were able to leave the Meadowlands with a victory over the defending Super Bowl champions the New York Giants 24-17.
Overall the Cowboys looked like a team who can contend this season. Although if there was one thing that was consistent with last year its was the lack of discipline that allowed costly penalties. The Cowboys were able to rack up 13 penalties for 86 yards in a close win over the Giants.
There was a lot of criticism surrounding Tony Romo and how he would perform this year. Although Romo isn’t all at fault for the past few losing seasons, he was actually playing really well it was he teammates who weren’t exactly playing to their expectations. But you could not tell in tonight’s game.
Romo threw for 307 yards, 3 TD, and 1 interception while second year running back Demarco Murray had 20 carries for 131 yards. The outstanding player of the game award goes to a player who Cowboys fans knew very little about, and that is Kevin Ogletree who had 8 receptions, 114 yards and 2 TD.
The Cowboys next game will be against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, September 16th on FOX.
