Eagles V. Cowboys: Half-Time Update

Eagles 17

Cowboys 10

The Cowboys and Eagles were basically even statistics wise at the end of the first quarter. The Cowboys ran 15 plays to the Eagles 14 while the Eagles out-gained the Cowboys 97 yards to 82 yards. There were no turnovers and the time possession was nearly even with the Cowboys having the ball 7 minutes and 54 seconds and the Eagles had the ball for 7 minutes and 6 seconds. The lone scoring play came from a Bryce Brown 10 yard touchdown run with 5:44 remaining in the first quarter.

The second quarter started with the Dallas Cowboys getting a 39 yard field goal with a little over 13 minutes left in the quarter. With 6:11 remaining in the second quarter, Brown scored from five yards out for his second TD of the game and put the Eagles up 14-3. The Cowboys had a classic two minute drive to tighten up the score to 14-10 when Romo hit Witten for a big play down to the one and then Murray ran it in for a TD. The Eagles came back with a quick 45 second drive to set up a field goal from 43 yards out. That made the score 17-10.  The second quarter stats ended up about even thanks to the Cowboys two minute drive. However, the Eagles had dominated the play up to that point.
