Cowboys 21, Panthers 7: Felix Jones Is Unstoppable, Stopped

Posted by SuckaFish

Only two things can stop Felix Jones, injuries and Jason Garrett. Both did Monday night.

Jones carried the ball eight times for 94 yards, an 11.8 average. So why did he only get eight carries? He left the game in the third quarter with a left knee strain but he should have had 20-25 touches by then.

The Cowboys scored zero points in the first half. They twice had the ball at the one before settling for field goals. And still they beat the Carolina Panthers 21-7 for their first win in Cowboys Stadium.

They won thanks to ball control and their best defensive performance of the young season. The key play was a Terence Newman interception returned for a TD in the fourth quarter. It was one of three turnovers created by the Cowboys, their first three of the season. They also sacked Jake Delhomme three times for their first three sacks of the season.

Tony Romo responded to a week of severe national criticism by completing 22-33 passes for 255 yards and , perhaps most importantly, no turnovers.

Third-string RB Tashard Choice had 18 carries for 82 yards and a TD.

The Cowboys travel to Denver to take on the Broncos Sunday at 4pm ET (DirecTV channel 714).

Here are the highlights.

Oh How I’ve Missed Those Ears

Perhaps the greatest innovation in fandom since cheerleaders, The Red Zone Channel in HD.

Today’s the day. The real opening day. Thirteen games including the Cowboys at Tampa Bay. That game is at 1pm so at approximately 4:22pm I’ll be turning the dial to DirecTV channel 703. For the rest of the day I’ll let Andrew Siciliano and his glorious ears take me to the best action in the NFL as it happens. Honestly I don’t know how we did it a decade ago. Getting two games on a Sunday and seeing scores from around the league every 20 minutes or so. Oh what an age we live in. Thank you Sunday Ticket, and thank you Red Zone Channel. You’re the reason the terrorists hate us, and for that I love you.
