Cowboys lead 13-10 at half, but Romo a concern

The Cowboys have played the kind of defense they were hoping, except for two plays.

But thanks to the second one, and their own miscues on offense, they lead the Giants 13-10 at halftime instead of enjoying a much bigger margin. And now they have to worry about their quarterback, after Tony Romo was sandwiched just before the half and had to come out of the game for a play.

The Giants have 179 yards at halftime, and 127 of them came on two snaps, an early 57-yard catch-and-run by Hakeem Nicks and then a 70-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz.

Otherwise, the Giants have been kind of a mess, with three turnovers and just 25 rushing yards.

The fact that the Cowboys haven’t been able to pad that lead feels like an omen, because they’ve largely dominated the first half. And if Romo has to miss any time, they’re staking their hopes to Kyle Orton, the only other quarterback on the roster.

    About the headline…

    “Romo is always a concern.”

    There just can’t be normal football games in NFC East Matchups, can there?

    Romo’s always a concern…

    Eli throws an interception on his first pass attempt of the year and then throws another one, his confidence is shot for the rest of the season. Time to put Painter in.

    Wilson continues with his fumbling ways, fumbling on his first rushing attempt. Time to bench him.

    Can’t make this stuff up.

    The Redskins are the class of the division period. Dallas, NY and Philadelphia are mediocre, mediocre and mediocre. #BurgundyandGoldSTANDARD

    Redskins the class of the division, now that’s a good joke for you. They’ve finally found stability and are pretty much about to kill their QB’s career.

    Keep drinking the Kool-aid. NFL at it again. You’ll eventually learn. Modern day organized crime.

    This just shows that the NFC North is by far the BEST NFC division in football. Cant wait to watch those battles!

    I can’t believe the boys managed to hold on to a late lead AND win at home
