With the Eagles losing earlier today at Minnesota, the Cowboys can move into a first-place tie in the NFC East with a victory Sunday afternoon against the Packers.
Through two quarters, it’s looking like Dallas will accomplish just that.
Led by a powerful performance from their offense, the Cowboys have taken a 26-3 halftime lead at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Dallas rolled up 332 first-half yards, with quarterback Tony Romo (250 yards passing, one TD), wideout Dez Bryant (102 yards receiving) and tailback DeMarco Murray (93 yards rushing, one TD) all starring.
By contrast, the Packers’ offense has gotten little going against a Dallas defense that’s had its share of struggles this season. Quarterback Matt Flynn has been intercepted once and exceeded 100 yards passing only after a 34-yard dump-off to tailback Eddie Lacy at the end of the half.
The Packers just haven’t been able to stress the Cowboys’ defense. Nor have they had any answers for the Cowboys’ offense. As a result, the Packers — who entered Sunday a half-game back of the Bears and Lions in the NFC North — are in considerable trouble with two quarters left to play.
