Cowboys Lead Giants At Half, 17-15

The Cowboys have the lead at half in Arlington



    After 30 minutes of football, the Dallas Cowboys are leading the New York Giants, 17-15.

    The Giants got on the board first, in a rather strange way. Jason Pierre-Paul sacked Tony Romo in the end zone for a safety to give New York an early 2-0 lead. Lawrence Tynes added a field goal to extend the Giants’ lead to 5-0 before the Dallas offense woke up.

    Late in the first quarter, Dallas drove 80 yards, a drive that finished with a 12-yard touchdown reception by John Phillips, from Tony Romo, to give Dallas the lead.

    In the second quarter, the Giants and Cowboys traded scores.

    The Giants scored a touchdown, on a one-yard run by Brandon Jacobs; then the Cowboys scored a touchdown, on a nine-yard pass from Romo. Tynes kicked a 26 yard field goal; then Dallas’ Dan Bailey kicked a 49 yard field goal.

    At intermission, it’s 17-15, Dallas.
