    So much for a struggling offense. The Cowboys have racked up 323-yards in the first half and lead the Raiders 17-0 at half time. The story has been big plays for Jason Garrett's bunch.

    They've had six-plays of over 20-yards, and have finally gotten their groove back of a few weeks ago.

    The scoring started with a Nick Folk field goal, and from there it's been big play touchdowns. Second year back Felix Jones flashed his explosiveness on a 46-yard touchdown run. That was followed by a 9-yard Miles Austin reception.

    This is a welcome sight for Cowboys fans and coaches. The biggest question over the past two weeks has surrounded the ineffectiveness of the Cowboys offense. Early on today, it looked like much of the same. But like today's crowed, the offense was a little late arriving to the game.

    The key now is staying sharp for the second half. A blow out win will do wonders for the team's swagger heading into December.
