Fumbled snap gives Cowboys halftime lead

Randy Starks,  Tony Romo 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.

    Will Marshall get fined for orange shoes? I believe their primary color is teal, like Bennet’s is navy. Then I thought, no, the Dolphins have an orange jersey. Then I thought, hey, Earl Bennett was wearing and orange jersey when he got fined for orange shoes!

    HERE’S A THEORY:

    Raiders get royally screwed by officials each and every year. This, is nothing new. However, yesterday’s Raiders-Vikings game officials should’ve had ski-masks on for that stick-up job.

    Could it be a coincidence that this blatant, ugly bias by the officials happens just when Tebowmania is taking off and the Denver Broncos all of a sudden have a chance in the division? Who doesn’t think the NFL would like to squeeze every last drop it can out of the Tebow publicity? Broncos making the playoffs would certainly extend that story.

    Sadly, Raiders may have to overcome an 11-on-18 playing field each week from here on out or until someone puts Tebowmania out of its misery.

    Inglerious is a sell out but Nickelback is the best.

  14. thefiesty1 says: Nov 24, 2011 7:25 PM

    Wow, the CowBabies beat a 3-7 team. Ready for the SB.

    The Dolphins need to draft a QB in the 1st round because Moore is not their QB of the future.He is a good backup but they’ll never win anything with him.

    Wow that game was lost by Sparano. How to you go soft play calling on their last drive the dolphins were clearly the better team on the field today

    I corrected it for you

    No team wins by field goals alone! In the red zone 5 times and walk with 9 points? I think the fish have potnetial but the coach needs to go. I am so over the “fist pumps” when the team gets 3 points…try 7 and you will some games…

    @ laphinfan

    Scoreboard. The only thing that is clear is that the Dolphins are a 3-8 football team.
