GREEN BAY, Wis. -- We are scoreless at Lambeau Field after one quarter, and we have a few highlights and lowlights to tell you about.
Blocked field goal: The Cowboys blocked their first field goal of the season when Mason Crosby's 54-yarder was knocked away by Jay Ratliff. But the Cowboys committed a mistake on the play. With the ball loose, instead of staying away from it, Terence Newman kicked the ball, causing 10-yard penalty. Newman got an earful from special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis on the sidelines.
Cowboys offense with two possessions: The Cowboys punted on their first possession of the game (by the way Marion Barber did start at running back). On the second possession, Jon Kitna underthrew a pass to Miles Austin down the Cowboys sidelines that was intercepted by Packers cornerback Sam Shields. There could be a question as to whether Austin could have fought for the ball, but give Shields credit for making a one-handed grab.
Ware getting one-on-one coverage: There is this perception that outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware is getting double-teamed on every play. Well, on three third-down plays, Ware saw one-on-one blocking from tackle Chad Clifton. Ware is forcing Aaron Rodgers out of the pocket, but nobody else is getting to him. Alan Ball and Orlando Scandrick shared a sack when each came on a blitz to force the Packers from a short field goal to the 54-yarder.
Injury update: Defensive end Sean Lissemore left the game with a sprained left ankle. He got X-rays and has not returned to the game.
