Cowboys Vs. Redskins Score: Redskins Lead 14-10 Behind Rex Grossman

Someway, somehow, Rex Grossman has given the Washington Redskins a 14-10 lead into halftime over the Dallas Cowboys. Grossman has led the Redskins on scoring drives on each of their last two possessions, scoring 14 unanswered points to take the lead late in the second quarter.

Dallas jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead, after Tony Romo connected with Dez Bryant on a 22 yard touchdown strike on Dallas' second possession of the game. The Cowboys inherited great field possession on that drive, taking over deep in Redskins territory following a Fred Davis fumble. 

Unlike last week's touchdown-fest against the Bills, Dallas' offense has stalled out, failing to get into the endzone again in the first half. Dan Bailey drilled a 37 yard field goal to give Dallas a 10-0 lead in the second quarter, accounting for the rest of Dallas' first half offense.

Despite looking like a J.V. quarterback, Rex Grossman led the Redskins on a pair of touchdown drives to end the first half. Grossman was involved in both touchdowns, as he scrambled for a four yard touchdown run to cut Dallas' lead to 10-7 before connecting with Jabar Gaffney on a 16 yard touchdown pass with 20 seconds left in the second quarter, giving the Redskins a 14-10 lead.

Dallas' offense will need to make adjustments and finish drives with touchdowns, or else the Cowboys will be in serious danger of dropping to 5-5.
