So, just at kickoff, the Internet in our Texas Stadium press box broke. Or something.

Let's catch up:

*Cowboys' fans started an "Eagles Suck!" chant before kickoff. Proud of you guys. Really.

*Terence Newman did start after all. But so did Pacman. Roy Williams, notsamuch. Hmm.

*Kicker Nick Folk's kickoff sailed out of bounds, then the Cowboys got flagged for holding on their initial kickoff return. It's early, but the Cowboys' special teams suck worse than Michael Phelps on Saturday Night Live.

*Lito Sheppard got toasted on Terrell Owens' 72-yard touchdown to make it Dallas 7-3. Tony Romo's pump fake was subtle, yet apparently effective. Only flaw in the play was the fact that Owens celebrated by chest-bumping Rowdy.

*That blur was Felix Jones, gone on a 98-yard kickoff return. Take that, Darren McFadden.-- Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
