The Cowboys had a short week to prepare for the Raider’s game, but there was no excuse for the sloppy play across the board. The first team offense looked horrendous, and Romo was back to his same bad habits of holding the ball and taking sacks.

It looks like international singing sensation Mika Newton, from the Ukraine, decided to stop by the Dallas Cowboys training camp to see a little bit of action from America’s team.
