Highlights: Vernon Davis Scores In 49ers’ Win Over Dallas

After an inconsistent 2013 season that saw them miss the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys came into today’s (Sun., September 7, 2014) home game against the San Francisco 49ers with a ton of question marks.

Most of those were supposed to be on defense, but unfortunately, they proved that their offense left much to be desired as well. Coming off of offseason back surgery, quarterback Tony Romo threw three first half interceptions as the 49ers stormed out to a massive 28-3 lead.

The 49ers took full advantage by scoring of the turnovers, with quarterback Colin Kaepernick finding tight end Vernon Davis for two first half touchdowns. On the first, Kaepernick avoided a sack to find Davis, who bobbled the ball before sauntering into the end zone (courtesy of Vine):

Romo is struggling to find his rhythm against a noticeably depleted 49ers defense, which is missing Aldon Smith, NaVorro Bowman, Glenn Dorsey, and others. Nevertheless, Romo is obviously struggling to get up to game speed after playing sparingly in the preseason. The huge deficit lead the impatient Dallas crowd to shower the Cowboys with a loud chorus of boos as the first half came to a close.

The Cowboys put two touchdowns on the board in the second half, but it was too little, too late as the 49ers won the game 28-17.
