After the defense held on the ensuing possession, Patrick Crayton fumbled the punt leading to a Ryan Succop field goal. The sloppiness continued when Romo fumbled an Andre Gurode snap. Just like that, Matt Cassel hit Mike Vrabl, and the Chiefs were up 10-0.
The Cowboys were able to drive down the field just before half time. However, Miles Austin dropped a touchdown, and Sam Hurd didn't do Tony Romo any favors on the next play. Nick Folk tacked on a field goal to get the Cowboys on the board.
The season rides on this next 30-minutes of football. A loss spell disaster. A win will give them much needed confidence going into the bye week.
