Cowboys rack up 332 first-half yards, roll to 26-3 lead


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.

    Did the Packers give up in their season/fans much like Rodgers gave up?

    This packers team is pathetic

    Go Cowboys!

    The Packers are a hapless, classless team with no pride, or defense for that matter. That Dom Capers, he’s a genius.

  5. dragonfly99 says: Dec 15, 2013 6:16 PM

    Packers are done.

  6. trollsetter says: Dec 15, 2013 6:20 PM

    I could try to be clever, but what’s the point. Green Bay sucks. It’s as simple as that.

    This is looking very similar to Thanksgiving.

    Do you realize that there is a very real chance the Vikings and the Packers will finish the season with identical records? And this is a horrible year for the Vikings.

    Dallas will go nowhere , so enjoy yourself Dallas fans while you can .Wait a sec 1 min to go in 3rd period. Packers back in this game, could this be another melt down by the boys ?

  10. dcviking says: Dec 15, 2013 6:45 PM

    And remember, the only problem the Packers have is Aaron is not the quarterback…

  11. 7mantel says: Dec 15, 2013 7:00 PM

    Dallas has 2 problems ,Romo the choker and Jones the joker !

  12. packhawk04 says: Dec 15, 2013 7:11 PM

  18. everyoneholdsorakpo says: Dec 15, 2013 7:43 PM

    ROMO is a joke. LOL.

  19. jcbadger34 says: Dec 15, 2013 7:43 PM

    LOL at all the Vikings fans commenting on this story. Looking pretty stupid now.

  20. crabtrap says: Dec 15, 2013 7:43 PM

    Cowboy fans have been “Rick Romo’d”

  21. everyoneholdsorakpo says: Dec 15, 2013 7:44 PM

    Officials can’t steal that one. Ridiculous how the officials have been homing the Packers.

  22. bert1913 says: Dec 15, 2013 7:45 PM

    where did dez go?

  23. kproffo says: Dec 15, 2013 7:46 PM

    The troll tears are flowing.

  24. photoguy13 says: Dec 15, 2013 7:46 PM

    All the Viking fans making stupid comments on this post will now have to go elsewhere.

  25. dragonfly99 says: Dec 15, 2013 7:46 PM

    The Packers are not done yet, thanks to Mr. Romo.

  26. taintedsaints2009 says: Dec 15, 2013 7:47 PM

    Huh. Packers just won

  27. kingpel says: Dec 15, 2013 7:48 PM

    How does Jason Garrett still have a job? I would have fired him after he cost them the Cardinal game years ago with that idiotic freezing of his own kicker. He has blown several games in similar fashion since yet no one ever blames the guy. He is the worst head coach in the NFL. He does absolutely nothing on that sideline. Stop the madness Jerry!

  28. richcranium2112 says: Dec 15, 2013 7:52 PM

    Was there a cowgirls pass play where they didn’t look for PI? They really suck.

  29. 7mantel says: Dec 15, 2013 7:53 PM

    Can’t really blame Garret,Jones calls the plays from the owners box !

  30. Phil Bacalzo says: Dec 15, 2013 7:57 PM

    How ’bout them Cowboys!!! ?
    Oh wait,…

  31. 4to12andbeyond says: Dec 15, 2013 7:59 PM

    contra74? young79? Hey where did you guys go? Are you guys going to expand on your comments about the Pack giving up, or being as bad as the Vikings? No?

    Packers “down” year riddled with impactful injuries = far better than the Vikings could manage after signing a big name free agent and drafting 3 in the first. Still potential to be better than any Vikings season has ever been by winning a championship.

  32. patricesw says: Dec 15, 2013 8:22 PM

    Melt dowm

  33. realfootballfan says: Dec 15, 2013 8:44 PM

    And still managed to lose. What’s that, two meltdown losses for the cowboys in the same season? Go ahead and stick with Jason Garrett though, lol. He’s doing a wonderful job.

  34. ezsabatino says: Dec 15, 2013 8:52 PM

    That’s a Heart of a Champion in the 2nd half. For all the naysayers no fat lady singing today.

  35. ezsabatino says: Dec 15, 2013 8:56 PM

    That’s called the heart of champion in the 2nd half. Where are the naysayers now? No fat lady singing today. That performance has been cancelled.

  36. grnzngiggles says: Dec 15, 2013 9:52 PM

    What time is the victory party at Jerry’s house?

  37. pgilbert2013 says: Dec 15, 2013 11:47 PM

    How-a-bout the Cowboys. Victory of the 1st half! Party!!!

    Viking fans don’t really understand football.
