All doesn't look sunny early for Dallas.

It looked for a moment like Tony Romo would lead Dallas down the field for a quick, statement-making six.  Instead, Nick Folk missed a field goal, giving away what seemed like three easy points.

But the drive, for its disappointment, also provided a highlight that will remain in the NFL vaults, probably, forever. On an run to the outside, Felix Jones put a move on the Panthers' Charles Godfrey; but that's an understatement. It looked as though Godfrey hit a forcefield of ankle-breaking confusion.

Sure, Dallas' defensive backs seem wholly unable to actually wrap up, but that was hilarious. And awesome.

If you missed the play, don't worry. It will almost undoubtedly make the Top Ten on SportsCenter tonight.

Also worth noting: Dallas' offensive line looks pretty good early. The group got some downright impressive pushes against Carolina's front four on run plays over the first two drives. If they keep it up, look for more big things from Felix Jones late.
