Cowboys win opener, Lee looking to back up strong season

Cowboys win opener, Lee looking to back up strong season

For those who believe four preseason games are too many, seeing their team play in Canton isn't a welcome sight.

It is finally time for some Dallas Cowboys football.

These players have been hard at work for almost a week, so expect to see the seamless display of skill and precision you've come to expect from some of the finest athletes on the roster bubble.

They led a defensive effort that didn't appear ready to take on Blaine Gabbert and the Cardinals scripted beginning. However, just having the National Football League back at all is going to be welcome.

The Cardinals, who were 7-8-1 SU and 6-10 ATS during a down year in 2016, have also confirmed that no starters will play, while Carson Palmer's understudy at quarterback, Drew Stanton, will also sit this one out. So instead the important thing to look is how some of the rookies and depth players will play. His arm strength limitations are readily apparent, but he did make enough plays where it may not be a tragedy to have him be Dak Prescott's primary backup for the season.

But that didn't stop some immediate panic from Cowboys faithful and the just-as-immediate admonitions from journalists covering the Cowboys to remember, it's only preseason. Moore might have gotten greedy on his interception, but he was giving receiver Noah Brown a chance to make a play in the end zone. Join the Sports Dallas Fort-Worth team! On Friday, Jones will don the gold blazer for the first time and host a party that night.

Also on offense who will be the wide receivers behind Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, and Cole Beasley. "That is standard operating procedure right there", he said. With those two out, the team had McFadden returning punts.

And for those such as Jason Witten, Dez Bryant, Sean Lee and Orlando Scandrick who did congratulate their boss, that was about as close to game action as they saw on this night.

Football fans care about the preseason, but not in the way the NFL wants them to. That said, questions remain on defense, where the secondary is suspect and the front seven lacks pass-rushers.

At the same time, several of the younger players are looking forward to getting a tease of the professional setting. He added one pressure and finished with a 75.8 pass-rush grade. Expect both coaches to play those "roster bubble" guys quite a bit here to see what to do going forward.

Watch for small things in the game.

Jones turned on his former Arkansas teammate with the cryptic line for others to hear in early 1994 that the owner could find 500 coaches to lead those talent-laden Cowboys.

Dallas is 7-2-1 SU and 5-5 ATS in its last 10 games against the NFC West according to the OddsShark NFL Database.
