The Dallas Cowboys looked much better in their second preseason game against the Oakland Raiders. All three quarterbacks led the Cowboys to long scoring drives, including third quarterback Tony Romo, who wasn’t even expected to play against the Raiders. But Romo engineered a 17-play, 59-yard drive which included two fourth-down conversions. Romo also scored the winning touchdown, sneaking in from one yard out with just six seconds to play . . . Vinny Testaverde played the first half and completed 13-of-17 passes for 124 yards, while Drew Henson was 7-of-9 for 53 yards. Henson actually checked off receivers this time and looked much more at-ease in the pocket. Dallas won the contest 21-20 (Click to read Sundays newspaper writeups of the game)

I was upset to see coach Joe Avezzano on the sidelines in Raiders silver and black. Apparently, former Cowboys’ offensive coordinator-turned Raiders head coach, Norv Turner has hired the leagues only three time Special Teams Coach of the Year winner to handle those same duties for Oakland.
