The Cowboys seems content to let the Raiders keep the ball, and the Raiders seem content to keep it.
The Raiders are frankly dominating the Cowboys, though they lead just 21-14 at halftime.
Rookie quarterback Matt McGloin was efficient and effective in the second quarter, helping keep the Cowboys off the field nearly the entire period. McGloin’s 11-of-15 passing for 146 yards, and has presided over an offense that has converted 7-of-9 third downs.
Rashad Jennings has a pair of touchdowns, obscuring the fact he’s averaging 2.1 yards per carry. But with McGloin playing so well and the Cowboys taking forever to get going, they have the edge at the break.
DeMarco Murray capped a touchdown drive just before halftime with his second score to keep it close, though it’s hard to see how.
