Owner Jerry Jones was admittedly dejected following the loss to the Giants in inaugural game at Cowboys Stadium last Sunday.
He had hoped it would be an added weapon and had put pressure on the team to live up to the standard of the $1.2 billion stadium with its play.
So he was no doubt happy and relieved with the 21-7 victory against the Panthers last night.
"It certainly does feeel good," Jones said. "The way it went so early, it just felt like maybe we ought to check this thing out for grim reapers living in the back some place."
