At halftime in Green Bay, the Dallas Cowboys are trailing the Green Bay Packers by a pair of touchdowns, but it could be worse.
The Cowboys defense actually held Aaron Rodgers and co. scoreless through the first quarter, and came up with a huge 4th down stand at the goal line, but they broke through in the second quarter when Rodgers hit James Starks on a 13-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown. They would add another touchdown with just under three minutes left in the half, on a 3-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Richard Rodgers.
About the only bright spot of the first half for the Dallas offense was a 50-yard run, broken off by Darren McFadden on the team’s first drive, but that came to an end when Matt Cassel’s throw to Dez Bryant in the end zone was picked off by Sam Shields.
Cassel is 7-of-13 passing for 52 yards and the interception.
Aaron Rodgers, meanwhile, is 17-of-24 for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Eddie Lacy is leading the Packers’ rushing attack with 50 yards on 11 carries.
The Cowboys will receive the kick to start the second half.
