The Dallas Cowboys returned home from training camp in Oxnard California to play their first home game of the 2017 pre-season at AT&T Stadium. It was an exciting game and the first team offense looked good. Dak to Dez put a smile on everyone's face.
The defense was also impressive as Jaylon Smith played his first game since suffering a serious knee injury in the Fiesta Bowl after the 2015 season, his junior year at Notre Dame. He started Saturday at middle linebacker for the Cowboys and was credited with one tackle.
It was also my first opportunity to get back at it after a long off-season. Saturday's game against the Indianapolis Colts marked the official start of my 6th season with the Cowboys.
As In-Stadium Host I have unique access on game day. I host various games with fans on the CowboysVision screens, and during the regular season I'll also interview a Cowboys player on the field after a win then emcee the postgame party in the Miller Lite Corral on the West Plaza.
Saturday's game was an opportunity to shake off the rust and get back in the swing of things. There was no postgame interview or party for me this particular game, however I did snap a few photos which you can see below.
Here's my view of the Cowboys players exiting the field after warmups.
When it was all said and done the Cowboys got the W at home, defeating the Colts 24-19 and moving to 2-1 on the preseason
