With the first half in the books, the Dallas Cowboys have a comfortable, 26-3 lead over the visiting Packers at AT&T Stadium.
After looking so terrible a week ago in the loss to the Bears, the Dallas defense has actually looked stout against back-up quarterback Matt Flynn and co. The unit allowed a lone field goal in the first half, a 57-yarder by Mason Crosby in the first quarter, they’ve sacked Flynn twice and CB Sterling Moore recorded his first NFL interception.
At the time, Crosby’s field goal tied things up at three, but it was all Cowboys after that.
Dan Bailey, who gave Dallas a 3-0 lead to open the scoring in the first quarter, added a 23-yarder to retake the lead at 6-3 midway through the first. Jason Witten then caught a 25-yard touchdown pass, Bailey added another pair of field goals (43 and 50 yards) and DeMarco Murray took in a one-yard touchdown run.
After the onslaught, Dallas’s lead was 26-3.
Murray finished the first half with 93 yards and the touchdown on just 11 carries.
Tony Romo finished the half 16 of 27 passing for 250 yards and the touchdown pass, to Witten.
