Dallas Cowboys


ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tony Romo's back appears to be getting better by the day, and the Dallas Cowboys' beleaguered defense held on after a strong start.


ST. LOUIS -- Dez Bryant had so much distance on the closest defender, it was pitch and catch.


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants placed cornerback Walter Thurmond III and wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday.


ARLINGTON, Texas -- Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers can put a tumultuous offseason behind them. They have a rusty Tony Romo to thank for making the opener a little easier.
