After 30 minutes, the Dallas Cowboys are ahead of the Washington Redskins by a score of 14-6.
Dallas opened up the scoring on their first drive, with DeMarco Murray’s four-yard touchdown run capping an 80-yard march, to give the Cowboys a 7-0 lead. Murray had 29 yards on seven carries in the first half, but is out with an injured knee, currently.
Washington answered in short order--kind of. Robert Griffin III took his team down to the Dallas two-yard line but, thanks to an ultra-clutch tackle by Sean Lee, they were limited to a field goal from 20 yards out by former Cowboy Kai Forbath.
After trading fruitless drives in the second quarter for awhile, Dwayne Harris took a Sav Rocca punt 86 yards for a touchdown to extend the Cowboys lead to 14-3.
Forbath hit on a 32-yard field goal as time ran out on the first half to close the gap to eight at 14-6, Dallas.
