» With Tony Romo on the field, the Cowboys managed one first down in 11 plays. Romo (3-6, 30 yards) never looked comfortable as the Cowboys' offensive line looms as a serious Achilles heel. Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly blew by center David Arkin and left guard Derrick Dockery for a sack of Romo in the second quarter. This is how lungs get punctured, guys.
»Carson Palmer (4-7, 38 yards, INT) brought back memories of his turnover-plagued 2011 season with an ugly interception on Oakland's first possession. Palmer badly telegraphed his throw, allowing free safety Gerald Sensabaugh to slide over and pick off a deep pass intended for Jacoby Ford. The Raiders need their quarterback to do a better job protecting the ball this season.
» Speaking of Ford, the wide receiver had two ugly drops in back-to-back plays on Oakland's second possession. Ford had an opportunity at No. 2 wideout with Denarius Moore out of action. He didn't make the most of it.
» Romo on the Cowboys' sloppy play: "We have no chance in the National Football League if you're going to make the mistakes that we made. I know we're going to go over this as a team and I'm going to stay on these guys and I think we're all going to hold each other accountable and make sure this stuff doesn't happen this year."
» If Romo had his own pull-string doll, that would be its exact quote.
»Terrelle Pryor (8-15, 50 yards, INT) made the first preseason appearance of his career in the second half. The 2011 Sugar Bowl MVP amped up the home crowd with a 9-yard scramble for a first down in the fourth quarter. A later attempt at a last-minute comeback was ... less successful.
»Dez Bryant made a brief cameo in Dallas' first possession, making a leaping 24-yard catch before exiting. He's nursing a hamstring injury.
