    Jake Delhomme's 25-yard touchdown pass to Dante Rosario is the difference right now, in a 7-0 game.

    If the Cowboys were looking to make a statement in their second consecutive prime time football game they're doing lousy job. Tony Romo and the Cowboys offense has sputtered around the first half, even drawing boos from the crowd.

    Felix Jones got the start in place of an injured Marion Barber, and immediately showed his speed breaking off two long plays on the Cowboys first drive. However it stalled, and Nick Folk missed a 40-yard field goal. Breaking a string of 16-consecutive makes.

    The one positive in the first half for the Cowboys, they finally forced a turnover thanks to a Mike Jenkins interception.

    Romo in his bounce back game is 13-18, for 132-yards. He hasn't been good, but hasn't been bad either.

    So far, the capacity crowd has been quiet, edgy, and a little cranky.
