The Cowboys got their first win at their new stadium last night on "Monday Night Football." Romo played pretty much mistake-free football and the defense was excellent. And the stadium looks more and more fabulous every time you see it. The Panthers aren't very good, so we can't get too excited, but a win is a win. We'll take it.

With four turnovers - including three picks by Romo - Dallas pretty much handed the season home opener to the Giants.

Running game was fantastic, but the secondary was awful and Romo was awful. Eli did what he always does when he has to. Gets it done. This team should be 2-0, but as always, when the light shines on them the brighest, they fold. I just read where Jones requested that the new stadium open with the Giants. He probably wanted all of the New York media there. Nice idea, but he should have asked for Washington. Or, better yet, Detroit.
