TO gets TD

Terrell Owens made an incredible one-handed grab for 33 yards, then was rewarded for it by getting a 19-yard TD on the next play, giving Dallas a 31-9 lead.


Julian Peterson was covering TO on the play, which is a mismatch every time. He also got no safety help from Deon Grant. And Josh Wilson is now 0-3 on corner blitzes, Romo either stepping aside or shrugging him off.

Marcus Trufant gets first INT of season

Tony Romo tried to go deep to Terrell Owens, but the pass was picked off by Marcus Trufant in double coverage, his first interception of the season and Seattle’s sixth of the year. It looked to me like TO gave up on the route, allowing Trufant to snare the overthrown ball.

Seahawks kick FG on opening drive of second half

With three shots at the end zone from inside the 10, the Seahawks came away with their third field goal of the game, trimming the lead to 24-9. It was a well-maintained drive that netted only three points because Hasselbeck had one pass knocked down by Jay Ratliff and then just missed Bobby Engram on third down. Now we get to see if the D made any adjustments at halftime.

First-half wrapup

As Dave Boling said, this looks like a college team vs. a pro team. The Cowboys have utterly dominated Seattle, Tony Romo picking apart their defense to the tune of 210 yards passing and two TDs. Seattle started to get some pressure on Romo at the end of the half, but by then it was too late. They had already scored 24 points. Dallas almost looks as if it has lost interest because the first quarter and a half were came so easily.


The offensive line has struggled as well, with Matt Hasselbeck getting sacked five times, even Walter

Seahawks kick another FG

Matt Hasselbeck looks very good — when he can get the ball off. He continues to be pressured and harrassed, the reason a promising Seahawks drive ended with an Olindo Mare field goal for 24-6. Once the Seahawks got to the 10, Hass was sacked twice. Dallas now has five sacks, two with DeMarcus Ware beating Walter Jones, two by Bradie James, who beat Carlson on one. And one by Tank Johnson, who beat Vallos.

Good fun

This is what we have resorted to in this game:


There is a young girl — about 18 or 20 — standing right in front of the press box holding up a sign that reads TONY IS THE FOX 4 ME. She is blocking the view of Jim Moore from the PI.


Jim knocked on the window and told her she was already on TV and that she can put down her sign. So she just stood up on her seat and is holding the sign even higher so he really can’t see. Gotta love Texans.
