The 2012 NFL season is officially underway after last night’s stunning victory for the Dallas Cowboys, who went into New York, waited patiently as the defending world champion Giants selebrated their Super Bowl title, complete with fireworks, sound effects, and all the trimmings that come along with hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. Then, as soon as the pre-game ceremonies were over, the Cowboys put on their game face, went out and slayed the Giants 24-17 at Met Life Stadium.
Often-maligned QB Tony Romo shredded the Giants vaunted defense for over 300 yards passing while ex-UVA star Kevin Ogletree was the biggest beneficiary hauling in two TD passes from Romo, while Miles Austin caught another. Seldom do the Super Bowl champions lose their season opener the next year, in fact, it was the Giants first loss in a home opener since 2003. Dallas RB Demarco Murray also ran through, around, and over the Giants defense for a 129 yard rushing night.
The Cowboys now sit atop the NFC East with a trip to Seattle coming up in Week 2. The Washington Washington Football Team head to New Orleans where they will unveil their new franchise QB Robert Griffin III against the Saints on Sunday. All questions concerning the Washington Football Team offensive line will be answered in the Big Easy as the Saints will definitely try to exploit any weaknesses up front. The Baltimore Ravens will open on Monday night at home against the Cincinnate Bengals.
