Cowboys vs. Bengals score update: DeMarco Murray scores, but Dallas trails, 13-10 at half

The Dallas Cowboys closed the deficit against the Bengals in the second quarter and went into the locker room trailing, 13-10. Cincinnati scored on their first two possessions of the game, but the Cowboys pulled things even early in the second.

The touchdown was set up by a Cincinnati turnover, as Brandon Carr picked off Andy Dalton and returned it deep inside Bengals territory, setting up the offense at the 27-yard line. On the next play, Tony Romo hit Jason Witten over the middle and just like that, the Cowboys were on the doorstep. An initial touchdown pass from Romo to Miles Austin was overturned on review, but DeMarco Murray punched it in from one yard out on third down to make it 10-10.

The Bengals responded to that touchdown with a sustained seven-minute drive, but the Cowboys defense held them to three. Cincinnati drove it all the way to the 15-yard line until Rob Ryan's unit held up and forced the 33-yard Josh Brown field goal.

Trailing 13-10, the Cowboys will kick to the Bengals to start the second half.
