It took 238 plays and almost 14 quarters, but someone was finally able to score a touchdown on the suddenly stout Miami Dolphins' defense. Laurent Robinson caught a five yard touchdown pass from Tony Romo with less than a minute to go before haldtime to give the Dallas Cowboys a 10-3 lead at the break.
Robinson's touchdown was set up by a fumble by Matt Moore, who mishandled a shotgun snap and the ball was recovered by Demarcus Ware at the Miami five yard line. Dallas only needed one play to break a 3-3 tie.
Dan Bailey added a 32-yard field goal earlier in the quarter to tie the game at 3-3. Shayne Graham missed a 47-yard field goal attempt for the Dolphins, who have intercepted Tony Romo twice, but have only turned those mistakes into three points.
Dallas was unable to hold the Dolphins off the scoreboard on the final drive of the half, as a pass interference penalty on 3rd and one. That set Graham up for anotehr field goal he made as time expired.
