Packers Lead Cowboys at Half, 28-7



    If anyone is still watching the Dallas Cowboys tonight, they’re not happy.

    The Cowboys’ first four drives consisted of three three-and-outs and an interception, which led to the Packers’ first points of the night, a nine-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Brandon Jackson, to put the Pack up 7-0. The Packers, on the other hand, scored a touchdown on all but one of their offensive possessions (a kneel down with 11 seconds left). Add it up, and this equals one miserable half of football.

    Jackson found the end zone once again on the team’s next drive, this time on a two-yard run. On the drive after that, Rodgers hit Greg Jennings on an eight yard touchdown pass to put Green Bay up by 21--and if you’re noticing a developing trend, it only gets worse.

    Dallas had spent their final timeout--one of them to challenge what was a clear touchdown--by the time Green Bay kicked off after the Jennings touchdown. On the return, Bryan McCann had the ball ripped from his grasp, grabbed by the Packers’ Nick Collins, and taken in for yet another Green Bay touchdown. Replays would clearly show that McCann was down, but--uh oh--Dallas had no timeouts with which to challenge the call. Packers 28, Cowboys 0.

    On the bright side, Dez Bryant is still really good at football. Bryant caught a two-yard touchdown pass from Jon Kitna with under a minute remaining in the half to bring the deficit to a mere 21 going into intermission.

    At half, it’s Packers 28, Cowboys 7.
