Fumbled snap gives Cowboys halftime lead

AP

The Dolphins defense was dominating for a fourth straight week, until a fumbled snap by Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore helped turn the first half in favor of the Cowboys.

Dallas leads 10-6 at halftime on Thanksgiving.  They should be very thankful to be ahead considering Tony Romo was picked off twice in the first half.

The Dolphins offense couldn’t take advantage of great field position throughout the half.  Moore fumbled three times, with DeMarcus Ware recovering a mishandled shotgun snap on the five-yard line with 1:01 left in the half. Romo found Laurent Robinson for a touchdown the next play for the half’s only touchdown.

Aided by a good kick return, the Dolphins drove right back for a quick field goal.

Moore’s usually good accuracy has been spotty, but the Dolphins are right in this game because of their defense. Romo only threw for 5.1 yards-per-attempt.

It may not be pretty, but we should get a more entertaining finish in this game than the Packers-Lions start to the day.
