(Eds: With AP Photos.) By SCHUYLER DIXON AP Sports Writer Tony Romo played through broken ribs to help keep the season afloat for Dallas in 2011. His injury isn't as serious this time, which means the task doesn't appear as daunting for the Cowboys quarterback. Romo has bruised ribs after he was crunched between two defenders late in the first half of a 36-31 win over the New York Giants in the opener. He played the second half and says he's just dealing with soreness heading into Sunday's game at Kansas City. The offense didn't do much when Romo returned - just 98 yards after halftime. And the Cowboys never could put away the Giants despite the gift of six turnovers from a revamped defense. But Romo thinks Dallas has something to build on. --- AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org

Recent 1-0 starts by the Dallas Cowboys

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...

Grading the Dallas Cowboys Defense After Week 1
