CANTON, OH - Tony Romo connected on half of his passes during his lone offensive series and the Dallas Cowboys kicked off the preseason with a 16-7 win over Cincinnati in the annual Hall of Fame Game.

Both starting quarterbacks saw limited time. Romo led his team on a 14-play, 63-yard drive, which ended on a 20-yard field goal from David Buehler. Romo completed 5-of-10 passes for 59 yards for the defending NFC East champions.

Cincinnati’s Carson Palmer played the first two offensive series and ended 2-of-5 for 18 yards for last year’s AFC North winners. Palmer’s younger brother, Jordan, connected on 10-of-20 passes for 102 yards, including a one-yard TD pass to tight end Darius Hill with 51 seconds left in the game.

Rookie linebacker Brandon Sharpe picked off Jordan Palmer and scored on the six-yard return early in the fourth quarter for Dallas’ lone touchdown.
