Camp observations: D comes up with stand

By Todd Archer

OXNARD, Calif. -- Goal-line drills often are the closest thing to real football in training camp because of the intensity that is required.

There is no tapping of the offensive players by the defense in this drill.

The Cowboys’ No. 1 defense beat the No. 1 offense in their three plays Tuesday.

Phillip Tanner was stopped short by DeMarcus Ware on a run to the strong side, and Ware got a little help from Jason Hatcher. On second down, the defense covered everybody on a Tony Romo pass, forcing the quarterback to scramble into linebacker Sean Lee. On the third, tight end Gavin Escobar was out of bounds on a sprint to the right by Romo.
