    Tweet Break: Elliott’s Debut, Romo’s Scare, and Dez Bryant Draw Spotlight in Seattle

    Last night, the “dress rehearsal” game in Seattle left with plenty of positive – and negative – takeaways. As always, these takes were shared all over the great world of Twitter.

    Even Dez Bryant himself, who was inactive with a concussion suffered earlier in the week, joined in on the Twitter conversation for this game.

    Let's take a look at some of the best tweets surrounding and their trip up to Seattle!

    This Zeke guy is pretty good, right?

    By far the biggest national headline for this game was the much-anticipated debut of Ezekiel Elliott – the running back taken with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 Draft by the Cowboys.

    Elliott finally showed us how he plans on living up to the high expectations set for him ever since that draft selection, rushing for 48 yards on just 7 carries.

    Running against the Seahawks “Legion of Boom” , it was clear from the start that Elliott was embracing the challenge of matching the defense's intensity on every play.

    That's Our Quarterback

    While Zeke's debut in the silver and blue had us jumping up and down early, Cowboys Nation was quickly quieted when Tony Romo went down on his first series. I was not watching this game live, but as soon as I heard about a Romo I texted our Staff Writer RJ Ochoa practically begging him to tell me that everything was fine with my our quarterback.

    Fortunately, it looks like things will be just fine for #9, but the moment was a tense one for sure.

    While it was certainly justified to think about the already coming to a close with Romo down in pain on the field, Dak Prescott continued to show a remarkable mix of poise and talent that fourth round rookies just aren't supposed to have.

    Dak Prescott completed 17 more passes, throwing a beautiful touchdown strike to , all while making us feel just a tad better about surviving a Tony Romo injury scare.

    Dez Bryant the sideline reporter

    Rounding out our look at the Cowboys' new age triplets here on Tweet Break, Dez Bryant found a way to make an impact on this game from the sidelines. WR took to Twitter to offer everything from personal injury updates to Cowboys' play-by-play analysis.

     

    Catching my eye in particular was another tweet from Bryant targeted towards . The two teammates have had an incredibly competitive together, both pushing one another to be great this season.

    Ultimately, Dez Bryant makes the Dallas Cowboys so much better, and the are going to learn that on September 11th.
