Cowboys Trail Patriots at Half, 13-3

The Cowboys are winless against the Patriots in the Brady-Belichick era


After a half of football in Arlington, the New England Patriots lead the Dallas Cowboys, 13-3.

The Cowboys and Patriots traded field goals in the first quarter, but Tom Brady broke out for a touchdown late in the second quarter to give New England a 10-3 lead. Brady finished the half 10-of-16 for 110 yards and a rushing touchdown. The Pats then added a field goal on their final drive of the half to extend the lead to 13-3.

On the offensive side of the ball, things look ugly. The Cowboys went three-and-out on five of their first six drives, and finished the half with just three first downs. Brandon Weeden is 7-of-13 passing for 36 yards, no touchdowns and no picks. Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden have combined for 41 yards rushing on 12 carries.

The pass rush has provided the only real bright spot so far for Dallas, with five sacks of Brady in the first half. Two of those have come from Greg Hardy and one from Rolando McClain--both players that were suspended for the first four games of the season, and are making their 2015 debut today.

The Patriots will receive the kick to open the second half.
