Miles Austin’s two catches for 115 yards and a touchdown gives him a clear advantage to become the Dallas Cowboys third receiver. With Terrell Owens covered tightly all game, it was visible that Tony Romo looked confused. He threw an interception early when the Cowboys were in the red zone and he fumbled once. He also seemed to hold onto the ball too long. That’s until he found Miles Austin.
Sam Hurd, who is still reeling from a high-ankle sprain, will likely get his chance next week against the Washington Redskins to make any kind of impact on the game and sway coaches.
Coaches should give Hurd and Austin a few more games to battle it out. The competition will be good for them, and the team.
