Cowboys win opener, Lee looking to back up strong season

OXNARD, CA (KAUZ) -

The NFL preseason kicked off Thursday night, with the Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame Game. They took on the Arizona Cardinals and rallied from an early 15-0 deficit to win 20-18 in Canton, Ohio.

Kellen Moore (12/17, 182 yards) and Cooper Rush (9/18, 87 yards) each threw a touchdown for the Cowboys, with former Baylor Basketball star Rico Gathers (3 catches, 59 yards) catching one. 

Now, just about all of the Cowboys' regulars sat out the game, including linebacker Sean Lee. Last year he was finally able to stay healthy all season, and put up the best numbers of his career, which is entering year eight.

"It's nice to be healthy," Lee said last week in Oxnard. "This is the first offseason I haven't had a surgery in a long time. So to have a full offseason with the guys is great. We are excited. We have to find a way to build off last season. We had a solid year but we have more to prove, we have the ultimate goal of winning the super bowl and we have to start now in camp, working."

He made his second-straight Pro Bowl with over 170 tackles and thinks the defense, which ranked fifth in the league in points allowed a year ago, can be even better this season.

"I always look back at the tape and tend to see the mistakes, tend to see the plays I left on the field. There is room to improve for me. And being able to do that. Defensively we want to take that next step, we want to be a dominant defense. For me I have to take away the ball more and that is a goal of mine."
