If you live out of town and you get the NFL Network, then you can watch the game live.

The big thing to watch are both teams O-lines, given that the teams virtually traded position coaches in the offseason.

Also, the big rookie wideout, Auden Tate, will play a key role on Special teams. If he can do it, you'd expect him to make the team.

Looking pretty sloppy on both sides of the ball so far. Still can’t stop the run.

And they still can't run. An Andy Dalton scramble was their best run by far.

They’re making Rod Smith look like Emmitt Smith. Dalton and Green aren’t on the same page either. And then a false start!

How are we supposed to see what Jeff Driskel can do if Josh Malone cannot hang on to the ball?

Sheesh, I'm sick of watching Teryl Austin's sorry crew tonight.

If you were looking for signs of optimism on offense for the first half, you saw none. Zip. Nada.

Dalton overthrows an open AJ Green and could only manage one half-ast drive. The line did not move anybody. And Driskel is just not an accurate passer and does not fit the offense. Matt Barkley will be the backup this year, for better or worse. Likely worse.

10-0 Cowboys.

John Brown has been the only bright spot. All for nothing though as he’ll be waived for Fat Randy. Did they learn nothing from Elliott?

False starts are getting ridiculous.

Yep. False starts are a constant for the Bungs, lol.

Driskel ends up looking okay against the other teams's 4th, 5th, and 6th stringers. Tie game, and people who didn't watch will shrug and not realize how woeful the offense played in the first half.
