After all of the pregame ceremonies finished on Sunday night, it was finally time to kick off Sunday night football. The Cowboys wasted no time scoring, fighting their way down the field for the first score of the game.
Wide receiver Dez Bryant came up with two crucial plays on the drive. The first was a 42-yard reception on a Tony Romo pass, taking the team from their own 41-yard line to the Jets' 17-yard line. The drive stalled a bit on the next five plays, but Romo again found Dez Bryant, this time for a three-yard touchdown.
The Jets now have their first crack at offense. Can Mark Sanchez tie the game?
