49ers Vs. Cowboys Score Update: Tony Romo Injures Ribs, Replaced By Jon Kitna, San Francisco Up 14-7

The San Francisco 49ers have shockingly looked like the better offense against the Dallas Cowboys through one half of play. Alex Smith has looked quite good on the limited number of passes he's been able to throw, finding Frank Gore and Josh Morgan (Morgan on a third down conversion). Then Smith found Kyle Williams on a gorgeous fade route completion in the end zone to put San Francisco up 14-0.

After both teams exchanged punts, Dallas struck back. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo went to wide reciever Kevin Ogletree on 3rd and nine and missed him, but a bad offside penalty set up 3rd and 4. Romo then found Miles Austin streaking down the middle uncovered after Tramaine Brock slipped in his coverage, and he went 51 yards downfield for the score to get Dallas on the board.

It appears to have come with a price though. Romo got hit sometime in the first half and injured his ribs. After coming out for the second half, Romo went back to the locker room and was replaced by Jon Kitna, who threw an interception into the end zone. Smith responded with a pick of his own though, and the Cowboys have good field position early in the third quarter.
