Cowboys WR Miles Austin Already In Triple Digits Against Jaguars

Somehow, Jaguars-Cowboys is the early favorite for fantasy game of the week, believe it or not. Cowboys WR Miles Austin has 102 yards on six catches in addition to the big days by Jaguars QB David Garrard, RB Maurice Jones-Drew, TE Marcedes Lewis, and WR Mike Sims-Walker.

Austin nearly added a touchdown at the end of the half, but his end zone catch was ruled out of bounds. This is his fourth 100-yard game this season, and he's got a good chance to outdo his previous efforts of 166, 146, and 142 yards. With only two touchdowns on the year, a score in the second half would really hit the spot for both the struggling Cowboys and Austin's fantasy owners, about whom we'll make no assumptions.

Cowboys RB Marion Barber nearly added to this game's fantasy implications, but his fourth-down goal line run was ruled short of the end zone as the half wound to a close.
