UPDATE: Start time now set at 4:35 PM ET.
The Cowboys-Carolina kickoff time has been pushed back by 10 minutes to 3:35 p.m. CST because of the weather here.— Brandon George (@DMN_George) September 9, 2018
UPDATE: The Cowboys pregame podcast says the start time is now set for 4:40 PM ET.
UPDATE: Some players are getting back on the field, so we may be getting ready to play on time, or close to it.
We don’t know at this point how long the delay will be. If there is rain during the game, it may favor the Cowboys and their running game with Ezekiel Elliott. The forecast has indicated that severe weather may be spotty, with isolated showers the main threat, so hopefully the delay will not go too long. It is mainly about lightning instead of rain for now.
However, we will stay on top of things as we wait for the season opener for the Cowboys. This is the debut of Randy Gregory after his long suspension form the league, of course. We also know that Rico Gathers is inactive, which will disappoint many fans. And how the offensive line holds up with Joe Looney is going to be a big thing to watch.
Hopefully, this is not going to delay things for long. Use the comments section here until we get things started to add your thoughts about the game.
Football is almost here, just a little behind schedule.
