Bears Lead The 'Boys 10-7 At Half

It wasn't a great half for Dallas, but they're only down three at intermission



    After a half of football in Arlington, the Chicago Bears are leading the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 10-7.

    The game was scoreless for more than 25 minutes of play, until the Bears’ Robbie Gould hit a 43-yard field goal to give the away team a 3-0 lead.

    On the Cowboys’ ensuing drive, Tony Romo tossed his third interception of the season, on what looked like a miscommunication between Romo and Dez Bryant. Charles Tillman, who picked off the pass, took it untouched 25 yards for the touchdown, to make it 10-0 Bears.

    It could’ve been a lot uglier of a half for the Cowboys, had they not answered the way they did following the pick six. Romo bounced back to lead a nine-play, 80-yard drive, capped off by a 10-yard touchdown pass from Romo to Miles Austin, which made it 10-7. The drive took 2:24 off the clock, leaving the Bears to simply kneel on it and go in with a three-point lead.

    In injury news, inside linebacker Bruce Carter left the game in the first quarter with a hip injury, and was replaced by Dan Connor.
