    Quarterback Tony Romo #9 of the Dallas Cowboys delivers a pass against the Denver Broncos during preseason NFL action at Invesco Field at Mile High on August 16, 2008 in Denver, Colorado.

    If pregame warmups are any indication it should be a good day for the Dallas Cowboys. Linebacker Keith Brooking took the team into huddle and "yelled we're going 3-1, who's coming with me!"

    Just from watching the faces of the players during warm-ups it's clear they're treating this as a business trip. Understanding with a win today, they move to 3-1 and real shot at 4-1 before the bye week. The mystery is the success of the Denver Broncos. They are one of seven unbeaten teams in the NFL. Most point to their soft schedule (Bengals, Browns, Raiders) as the reason behind their fast start.

    Marion Barber ran out of the tunnel for warm ups and looked okay. There wasn't a noticeable limp or anything that would indicate he wasn't ready to play.

    Things to watch this afternoon:

    • Will Jason Garrett turn Tony Romo loose today?
    • Who will get the share of the carries at RB?
    • The Broncos defense is ranked #1 in league. We'll see if that's legit.
    • Kyle Orton?
    • Which one will give: the Broncos run defense or the Cowboys rush offense?

    My fearless prediction: Cowboys  21    Broncos   6
