Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Tony Romo and Dez Bryant connected for two touchdowns in the second quarter, but the Dallas Cowboys trail the New Orleans Saints, 17-14 at the half.

Tony Romo connected with Dez Bryant twice in the second quarter as the Dallas Cowboys trail the New Orleans Saints, 17-14 at the end of the first half.

Both touchdown passes for Dallas went for 58 yards and allowed the Cowboys to overcome a 7-0 first quarter deficit. The first came after just three plays and 74 yards, and was done in less than a minute and a half. The second, with just under six minutes to go, was after five plays and 75 yards. Bryant leads the game with five receptions and 145 yards.

Romo was 9-12 passing in the first half for 176 yards. He did not throw an interception, making his two touchdowns stand out that much more.

On the other side, the New Orleans Saints scored their first touchdown on a nine-yard run from Mark Ingram at the 10:31 mark in the first quarter. Ingram had 12 carries for 38 yards to lead the game in rushing. Quarterback Drew Brees threw 22-30 for 261 yards, and accounted for the second touchdown -- a six-yard pass to Lance Moore with just over a minute left in the half.

The Saints took the lead with time winding down in the half when Garrett Hartley knocked down a 37-yard field goal to make it 17-14.
