It was far from a pretty first half for the Dallas Cowboys, but they’re only down three to the Patriots at halftime in Foxboro.
Tony Romo and the Cowboys got off to an inauspicious start on Sunday, with Romo throwing an interception on the team’s opening drive. The defense kept Tom Brady and co. out of the end zone after the pick, but the Patriots took a 3-0 lead on a 31-yard field goal from Stephen Gostkowski.
The Cowboys answered in the form of an interception of Brady by Terence Newman, and, on the ensuing drive, a 48-yard, Dan Bailey field goal, which evened things at 3-3.
New England regained the lead at 13-3 in the second quarter with Gostkowski’s second field goal and the first touchdown of the day, a five-yard touchdown pass from Brady to Wes Welker.
Dallas finally answered on their final drive of the half, with an 11 play march that ended with a one-yard touchdown pass from Romo to Witten to make it 13-10, where we stand at intermission.
