Cowboys vs. Redskins Halftime Score: Dallas tied 7-7

With the NFC East title on the line, Dallas and Washington are tied 7-7.

Rob Carr

Tony Romo has thrown two interceptions, but recovered to throw a nine yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten that gave the Cowboys an early 7-0 lead. The Redskins answered with an eight play, 68 yard drive that Albert Morris capped with a 17 yard touchdown run to tie the game. That touchdown has this winner-take-all game for the NFC East title tied 7-7 at halftime.

Robert Griffin III has been hassled by the Dallas defense to only 43 yards passing on 5 of 11 attempts. Morris has been able to keep the Redskins moving with 91 yards rushing so far.

For Dallas, the offense has struggled with the early interceptions, but Dez Bryant has 54 yards receiving on three catches. Demarco Murray has also rushed for 30 yards, but those yards have come on 10 carries.

The winner gets a home playoff game at 4:30 p.m. next Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
