In week one, Kevin Ogletree had an impressive debut as the Cowboys’ No. 3 receiver, grabbing (a career high) eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns, and for awhile on Sunday, he looked primed to follow up on that performance in equally impressive fashion.
Ogletree caught a 26-yard pass from Tony Romo in the first quarter. Later on the drive, he gained five yards on an end around, but this would spell the end of Ogletree’s contribution against the Seahawks. As Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas points out, Ogletree was not so much as targeted again in the 27-7 loss, which really says something considering that Dallas completely abandoned the run in the second half.
The difference between week one and week two?
“A better effort on defense,” Ogletree said, per ESPN Dallas. “I think that group there deserves some credit. They game-planned us good, got good players on their side of the ball and made more plays than us.”
