Choice Touchdown Gives Cowboys 10-6 Lead.



    The latest meeting between the Cowboys and Eagles has been all about the defenses. Tashard Choice's 2-yard touchdown run was the only score of the first half, and the Cowboys are leading 10-6.

    The Eagles have pieced together a couple of drives, that resulted in two David Akers field goals.

    The Cowboys defense has done a nice job limiting the Eagles big play offense. On Philadelphia's first possesion, a tipped pass led to the Gerald Sensebaugh interception, that set up Choice's touchdown.

    To this point the Cowboys are getting nice pressure on Donovan Mcnabb. Jay Ratliff has two-sacks, and Demarcus Ware has forced several quick throws.

    Early on the Cowboys offense was moving the ball nicely. With the exception of a couple of high throws Tony Romo has been sharp, and turnover free. The only success Dallas seems to have on the ground right now is coming from their version of the "Wildcat" offense, with Tashard Choice lined up at quarterback.

    Just before the half Tony Romo hit Patrick Crayton for a gain of 64-yards. Romo then missed a wide open Jasoon Witten, that eventually led to a Nick Folk field goal.
