Sunday, August 8: Tony Romo threw for 59 yards in the first quarter, and that was it for most of the Cowboys starters in the NFL Hall of Fame Preseason game in Canton, Ohio against the Cincinnati Bengals. The game marked the first time Terrell Owens has faced the Cowboys since he was cut two years ago. Former UTEP Miner Jordan Palmer was 10-20 for 102 yards and one touchdown, but also threw two interceptions.
It was a weekend marked by exciting Hall of Fame celebrations. Former Dallas Cowboy Emmitt Smith, the NFL's all-time leading rusher, was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, alongside longtime San Francisco Receiver Jerry Rice. Cowboys backup quarterback Stephen McGee was 12-22 for 116 yards. Cowboys kicker David Buehler provided most of the scoring, connecting on field goals from 20, 34, and 23 yards (missed 49 yarder). Cowboys running back Tashard Choice rushed 7 times for 41 yards, while Terrell Owens had two receptions for 18 yards for the Bengals.
The Cowboys will next play Thursday, August 12 against the Oakland Raiders.
