    After trading touchdowns in the first half, the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles have headed to the locker rooms at AT&T Stadium for halftime locked in a 7-7 tie.

    The Cowboys offense came out looking as strong as it has arguably since Tony Romo was injured, marching 93 yards in just under six minutes on their opening drive. Matt Cassel capped it off with a five-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley to give the Cowboys a 7-0 lead.

    The Eagles wouldn’t answer until the second quarter, when Sam Bradford and co. went 80 yards in just over four minutes, scoring on a one-yard run from DeMarco Murray.

    Dez Bryant, who was quiet in his return to action against the Giants last week, has two catches for 57 yards, including a 51 yard catch-and-run.

    Cassel is 7-of-13 passing, for 93 yards and the touchdown. On the other side, Sam Bradford is 10-of-17 for 74 yards.

    Darren McFadden has gone for 79 yards on 15 carries. DeMarco Murray has 37 yards on 10 carries, and Ryan Mathews leads the Eagles in rushing at half, with 38 yards on six carries.

    The Cowboys will get the ball to start the second half.
