Dallas Wins! 37-20!

Dallas is 2-0 for the first time since 1999.

Highlights: Another great game from Tony Romo, who looks more comfortable in the pocket. Marion Barber had 14 carries for 89 yards and two touchdowns including a 40-yard jaunt, the longest of his career. Romo was 14 for 29, 189 yards and 2 touchdowns. T.O. was the leading receiver with five catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. The defense played better, with four interceptions and two sacks. Although the secondary still had problems, the turnovers helped even it out. Anthony Henry had two interceptions and Ken Hamlin had his first of the year.

The troubling: The offense sputtered for awhile, partially from an ineffective Julius Jones, who ran the ball 15 times for 32 yards. He looked awful once again. The Miami run defense was tough to break through and we just tired them out at the end.

Overall, Dallas was able to win this game because of five Miami turnovers.

Next week will be a real tough match as we head to Chicago to play the Bears. If we beat them, we're the top team in the NFC.

MVP goes to Marion Barber III and Anthony Henry.

Honorable mention for MVP should go to Nick Folk. Rookie kicker having to kick on the dirt infield: 3 for 3.

I am very close to being on the Barber bandwagon. Jones isn't breaking tackles nor is he hitting holes.

Good point. I should have thought about Nick Folk!
