It’s been a decidedly defensive game in Arizona today, but the Dallas Cowboys have taken a 10-3 lead over the Cardinals into half.
The home team took the lead in the first quarter with a 48-yard field goal from Jay Feeley, the only lead of the day so far for Arizona.
The Cowboys would get on the board in the second quarter with a 50-yard field goal from Dan Bailey, that banged off the upright and went in, to tie the game up at 3-3. Bailey had missed a 53-yard attempt earlier in the half to snap his streak of 26 consecutive successful field goal attempts.
Dallas took the lead with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Dez Bryant late in the second quarter, to bring the score to 10-3, where we stand at half.
Romo finished the first half 11-20 passing for 135 yards and the touchdown, but he was also sacked three times, as the Dallas offensive line has struggled to hold off the Arizona pass rush.
The Cardinals’ Kevin Kolb, meanwhile, has been unimpressive in his return from a foot injury, going 7-11 passing for 44 yards.
Dallas had a scare when Laurent Robinson was forced to leave the field with a shoulder injury in the second quarter, but he returned for the team’s final couple of drives.
