Cowboys vs. Falcons score update: Dallas and Atlanta tied, 6-6, at the half

Dallas and Atlanta are tied, 6-6, at halftime with the Cowboys giving up an early 6-0 lead as time expired in the half.

The Dallas Cowboys led, 6-0, after the first quarter thanks to a pair of big plays on special teams and offense. After an opening-drive three-and-out by the Falcons offense, Cowboys receiver Dwayne Harris returned the ensuing punt 37 yards to deep within Atlanta territory. The Cowboys would fail to capitalize, however, settling for a Dan Bailey field goal.

Another Bailey field goal followed a 65-yard completion from Tony Romo to Kevin Ogletree, with the Falcons finally getting on the scoreboard after a Matt Bryant field goal early in the second quarter. Bailey would miss from 54 yards on the Cowboys next possession.

The Cowboys offense would move the ball once more late in the quarter but stall at midfield, with Atlanta marching down the field to connect on a 47-yard field goal as time expired in the quarter.

Through two quarters Tony Romo is 10-of-17 for 153 yards and not touchdowns, as the Cowboys running game struggled one again. Dallas has just 29 yards on 12 carries, with Felix Jones and Lance Dunbar splitting duties in the backfield.
