Cowboys having to go long way to score this season
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys have had to go a long way to score their touchdowns this season.
Their four touchdown drives have averaged 78 yards, including a 95-yarder for their only score in the last game.
The Cowboys (1-1), who play their home opener Sunday against Tampa Bay, haven't had a short field yet this season.
The average starting position for 19 possessions is their own 20. Only one drive started beyond the 30, and that was at the 34 on the second drive of the season opener after the New York Giants fumbled.
That fumble is the only turnover forced by the Cowboys this season. And they haven't had any big plays on special teams.
