(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. --- Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org

Recent 1-0 starts by the Dallas Cowboys

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...
