Broncos giving Romo several looks

DENVER -- If you're watching this game on TV, you can see that the Broncos are trying to move their linebackers around quite a bit before the snap. The Cowboys have been using their two-tight end offense, "12," quite a bit in this game, and it looks like the Broncos are leaving Martellus Bennett open.
And finally, a catch by a Cowboys wide receiver not named Sam Hurd. Roy Williams made a nice catch at the 2-yard line, and unlike last week, offensive coordinator Jason Garrett called two consecutive running plays near the goal line. So far, Marion Barber looks pretty strong. The Cowboys are pretty much splitting carries between Tashard Choice and Barber.
It looks like Barber's left quad is holding up pretty well. I'm watching him stretch it right now on the sideline. If Kyle Orton can't start hitting moving targets, the Broncos are in for a long afternoon.
Josh McDaniels can't panic and abandon the run. He's not running the ball on first down -- and that's really hurting this offense.
