The Dallas Cowboys haven’t exactly been impressive so far, but thanks to the performance of the defense, DeMarcus Ware in particular, they are tied with the NFC East Champion Philadelphia Eagles, 7-7, at half.
After a scoreless first quarter, the Eagles opened up the scoring at the very beginning of the second, with Kevin Kolb hitting Chad Hall for a four yard touchdown that, with David Akers’ extra point, gave Philadelphia a 7-0 lead.
Dallas was unable to answer on offense, going three-and-out on their next drive, but on the Eagles’ ensuing possession, the defense stepped up.
Anthony Spencer’s strip-sack of Kolb was recovered and returned 17 yards for a touchdown by DeMarcus Ware to knot things up at 7-7. Ware also had two sacks in the first half, giving him 14.5 on the year, and narrowly missed another.
Bryan McCann fumbled a late punt to give the Eagles a bit of life, but were unable to capitalize before intermission. The half ended with Gerald Sensabaugh interception Kolb on a Hail Mary.
At half, Dallas and Philadelphia are tied up at 7-7.
