Dallas Cowboys / Oakland Raiders

The Cowboys played in the Hall Of Fame Game on Sunday night, getting a 24-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Tony Romo didn’t play but will be in action for the second preseason game later tonight. Romo will start against Oakland and likely play a few series before taking a rest and turning it over to the backups.

In the Hall Of Fame Game, QB snaps were pretty evenly divided between the backups with Alex Tanney getting the majority – he completed 5 of 11 passes for 58 yards.

Kyle Orton had three attempts and two completions. Nick Stephens went 4 of 7 for 24 yards. Neither quarterback tossed a touchdown in the win.

While the Dallas QB situation is solidified, the same cannot necessarily be said for the Raiders. Matt Flynn will get the start against Dallas in his debut with Oakland, but he certainly has some competition. Rookie Tyler Wilson might the quarterback of the future but he still has some developments to make

The job is certainly Flynn’s for the time being, provided that he continues to impress the coaches like he has done so through training camp so far. Of course you might remember that Flynn started last season in the preseason opener for Seattle, and then ended up losing the job to then-rookie Russell Wilson – you can bet he doesn’t want that to happen again…
