(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By SCHUYLER DIXON AP Sports Writer DeMarcus Ware's first game as a defensive end ended without him making a tackle.
The Cowboys beat the Giants 36-31, but it's just the second time Ware hasn't made a tackle in his eight years in the NFL. The other was the fifth game of his rookie season in 2005.
Coach Jason Garrett doesn't believe Ware is a ''sack or nothing'' guy on the outside of the new four-man front under first-year defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.
Garrett says Ware's pressure played a role in three interceptions for Dallas last weekend, and is sure Ware will be making tackles soon enough. Ware also will try to snap a three-game streak without a sack Sunday at Kansas City - his longest since the end of 2011.

The Cowboys offense is looking solid but the Chiefs aren't the same push over they were last season.

Dallas Cowboys LB Anthony Spencer had arthroscopic left knee surgery on July 25, he returned to practice on Wednesday. Spencer had a planned rehab day on Thursday and according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas, the linebacker didn't suffer any setbacks.
The Dallas Cowboys participated in their first NFL draft in 1961. The team’s first pick turned out to be a legend, as the Cowboys selected defensive tackle Bob Lilly.
The second-round pick was born in Schulenburg, Texas and played at Texas Tech. The Cowboys took this player in the second round of the draft, but he chose to play for the Dallas Texans. He enjoyed a ten-year career...
Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware is still getting used to playing down in defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin's 'Tampa 2' and is still looking for his first sack. One of the most heralded pass rushers of this era, Ware got close in week one, but no cigar.
Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray expects to take on a much larger work load than he got last week.
“I thought it went well,” Murray said of the short throws, per ESPNDallas.com. “I thought we ran it 20 times but I know they want to run it more, we’ll see how that goes. Whenever you get passes like that, sometimes those are better than handoff runs. (You get) a little...

This is so sad.
Giants LB Dan Connor was one of the two players accused of faking an injury after he went down on two consecutive plays on Sunday night versus the Cowboys.
Jerry Jones and Tony Romo even went so far as to call the players out afterwards for their actions saying:
“I thought us experts on football were the only ones who could see that,” Cowboys owner and general...

So, let's talk about the Chiefs briefly. I readily admit that I would like to spend 2,000 words on the upcoming opponents like I used to, but the way we are doing the blog these days has put far more emphasis on the game behind than the game ahead and most seem to enjoy the Tuesday-Thursday breakdowns...

It would seem that an opening-game win for an NFL team would be significant.
For the Dallas Cowboys, a fan could point to a huge 45-35 win over the New York Giants in 2007 as a catalyst for a 13-3 season.
A win during Kickoff Weekend is usually good for the Cowboys.
Conversely, a fan could look at the team’s disappointing loss to the Redskins to open the 2010 season as a major...
The Cowboys accused players of faking injuries to slow down their no huddle, but it turns out one of the players was not faking it at all. Dan Connor went down and it turns out he was diagnosed with a season ending neck injury.
Tony Romo and Jerry Jones thought it was pretty funny after the game with the comments below. I’m sure they wish they could take back now. See...
