DeMarco Murray had an 11-yard touchdown run, Dan Bailey kicked three field goals and the Dallas Cowboys beat Tampa Bay 16-10 Sunday to win their home opener with a delayed ending. A week after the Buccaneers' big push against the New York Giants in their victory formation, Tampa Bay used a pair of timeouts in the final 40 seconds after a failed onside kick attempt. The Cowboys (2-1) scored twice in the first half when starting in Tampa Bay territory after turnovers. They overcame three turnovers by Romo - two on plays reversed by replay - with a suffocating defense, holding Tampa Bay to 166 total yards. Romo's interception on the game's fourth play set up Tampa Bay (1-2) for Josh Freeman's 1-yard TD to Luke Stocker. The Cowboys drew even on Murray's run after Sean Lee's interception. Bailey had kicks of 32, 26 and 22 yards.
