Will anyone give this guy some help?

3.  Will someone play well enough to allow Romo to break his Witten addiction?

Jason Witten continues to play at a Hall of Fame level. He was a beast in the first two games. I think he was used wisely, judiciously, and effectively in the first two games. But, in the game against the Skins, it seemed like Romo was locked on to Witten far too quickly and far too often. Romo’s Witten addiction was particularly acute in the first half. He locked in and then threw to Witten for 2 or 3 yards, when much more was needed, and there was not that much pressure, at least twice in the first half. Maybe Romo’s pain killer hadn’t kicked in yet and he was anxious to unload the ball, but he targeted Witten too early and too frequently in the early going. Someone has to step up here.

I will be watching to see whether Romo stares down Witten early in the game, or whether he at least pretends to think about throwing to someone else.
