    In the week leading up to the Dallas Cowboys matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, a lot was made of how the slick playing surface at Wembley Stadium would hold up. According to Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo, the talk was much ado about nothing, and the pitch held up fine.

    I was fine with the playing surface,” Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I think Washington has a surface that I felt was similar. There have been times you get a little bit of that wet on topsoil, and then once you put your feet in, it feels good underneath on the pitch. So I enjoyed it. I thought it was great.”

    Running back DeMarco Murray, who went for 100 yards on 19 carries, says he didn’t pay much mind to the natural grass surface.

    “It was all right,” Murray said. “You can’t over think things like that. It will creep up in your mind and bad things will happen. You’ve got to overcome it and do what you’re able to do.”
