Snap exchange not a problem

By Todd Archer

ARLINGTON, Texas -- During training camp if Phil Costa wasn’t delivering the snaps to Tony Romo in practice, then it was something of an adventure.

With Costa out recovering from a partially dislocated ankle and his replacement, Ryan Cook, unable to play Sunday because of a knee injury, Mackenzy Bernadeau made the first start of his career at center.

And there were no poor snaps.

“This is the first week that I’ve really taken any significant snaps with (Bernadeau),” Romo said. “I thought he did a real good job. I didn’t have any problems getting any snaps and that was a good thing.”

That was about the best thing to be said for the offensive line play, unless you are owner and general manager Jerry Jones.

Romo was sacked a career-high seven times, and the Cowboys only ran for 63 yards on 21 carries. It’s the sixth time this season they have been held to less than 85 yards rushing in a game this season.
