Dallas looks to get things turned around after probably the worst game of QB Tony Romo’s career last week. (A 28-17 loss to the 49ers in Dallas.) Tennessee may not be the place to do it though. Then again, there were so many 49ers fans in Dallas last week that playing in Tennessee may not feel like the Cowboys’ first away game. Important note: for all its ineptitude on offense, the Cowboys didn’t allow the 49ers a single point in the second half. That’s why they’re just a 4-point underdog today at 1pm.
The Titans are laughing at that spread. They ripped the Rams on the road last week (26-10) and quarterback Jake Locker hopes to leave this game as a bigger NFL name than Tony Romo. All the pre-game headlines about Romo expecting to “bounce back” must frustrate Locker, who threw 33 times for 266 years, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the road opener, despite being sacked four times. The fourth-year Titans quarterback has always been tough and talented–last week he look seasoned and composed. The Tennessee Titans defense lived up to the team name too, looking every bit titanic against Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles and the KC running game. Could be a long day for Dallas unless Tony Romo proves to Jake Locker why he’s a headline grabber, even when he’s terrible.
