The Rookie

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With that 60-yard run, Felix Jones is the first Cowboys rookie to start his career with touchdowns in three games. From my seat high atop Lambeau Field, it looked like tight end Jason Witten did a superb job sealing Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins to spring Jones.

Also let's bring up the fact that T.O. has two big hustle plays in this game. He raced all the way from the end zone to catch safety Nick Collins after a 61-yard interception return. The Packers only managed a field goal after that.

On the Jones run, T.O. raced from across the field to seal off the sideline for Jones. If Cowboys fans still think the club should've taken Rashard Mendenhall instead of Jones, I'm not hearing from any of them.

By the way, two nice plays by reserve tight end Tony Curtis tonight. With starting fullback Deon Anderson out for a couple of weeks with a knee injury, the Cowboys are rotating all three tight ends quite a bit. Witten's blocked a little more than he'd have to if Anderson was playing, but he's still making plenty of plays in the passing game.
