(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.

The Cowboys offense is looking solid but the Chiefs aren't the same push over they were last season.
After going 13-3 week 1, I've started out 1-0 with the Patriot sneaking past the Jets.

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.

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...

It’s not often you see a team force 6 turnovers in a single game.
It’s even less often that a team forcing 6 turnovers wins by less than a touchdown.
That’s exactly what happened to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
The Cowboys forced and recovered three fumbles, and intercepted Eli Manning three times, yet only won 36-31 when it...
