Cowboys Vs. Giants: Kevin Ogletree's Big Night

Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver Kevin Ogletree had never caught more than three passes in a game in three NFL seasons of work. That changed Wednesday, as the native of Queens, N.Y., lit up his hometown New York Giants and propelled the Cowboys to a 24-17 victory on opening night in the NFL.

Ogletree had a career-high eight receptions for 114 yards and two touchdown catches, which also doubled as his first two scores in the NFL. He was often quarterback Tony Romo's primary target throughout the contest, scoring his second touchdown, a 40-yard strike, on the opening possession of the second half after notching the first touchdown of the NFL season in the second quarter, a 10-yard find from Romo after Ogletree had slipped behind the Giants' secondary.

It was also Ogletree's 13-yard reception on 3rd and 10 late in the fourth quarter that sealed the win for the Cowboys, as they were able to run out the clock after the crucial conversion.
