If Brian Hoyer can look like solid against the Steelers, Newton will be a stud! He played well against the Lions in Week 2. Expect another solid game against Pittsburgh in Week 3.
After a brutal Week 1, Romo followed up with a 176 yards, 1 touchdown performance against the Titans. Slightly less than 60% of his production went to Bryant. Considering that they went into the game trying to get away from that habit, I want to see more before Romo becomes a top-12 quarterback in my rankings.

At home and Pitt D not really the elite unit we're used to seeing, although Cam still getting barrings here.
Rams D can be a problem and this one is on the road, plus he hasn't exactly been lighting it up.

Romo looks like his back is giving him a lot of problems, I am not sure he is going to be able to attack the Rams downfield; the Cowboys may instead rely on the running game.
