Although his faith in the offensive system he's installed remains unshaken, Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly did admit concern over the way his team has executed that offense through the first two games, and believes he and his staff have a lot to do with it.
The line took the lion's share of the blame as the Eagles had just 7 yards rushing on 17 carries in the defeat. "He assured me last night he was going to be fine", said Garrett.
Romo was later seen favoring his non-throwing arm as he walked off the field and into the locker room. And more importantly, he didn't make any negative plays that could have hurt the team. Danny McCray blocked Donnie Jones' punt and Wilber returned it for a score to give the Cowboys a 13-0 lead.
The 35-year-old quarterback had the same injury that made him miss 10 games in 2010.
Romo converted a game-saving fourth down with a pass to Jason Witten on a late drive to beat Detroit in the wild-card round last season. The Cowboys held on to win 20-10 and now have a 2-0 record, but there is no questioning that their Super Bowl aspirations may have gone out the window with Romo's injury. "We didn't run the ball well against San Francisco a year ago... but we straightened things out as we went along". As reported by Yahoo Sports, Romo went down after a sack and fumble and immediately clutched his left collarbone.
Whenever the Eagles were going to try to run the ball, there were Cowboys' defenders in the backfield in a blink of an eye. The Cowboys then host a Thanksgiving Day game four days later.
Weeden is now in his second year with the same offense for the first time in his career and has already had to step up his game this offseason just to keep his job. Coach Rex Ryan says it's "probably a stretch" to expect Williams to play against the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday.
"I was embarrassed", Kelly said Monday about the 20-10 loss. He hasn't thrown a regular-season pass since 2012 and couldn't make the Eagles as the No. 3 QB out of training camp.
Tony Romo won't be back for at least two months because of a broken left collarbone, and maybe closer to three with the way the schedule falls for the Dallas Cowboys. Both Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks exited the game with injuries, meaning rookie Jordan Hicks manned the middle next to DeMeco Ryans.
