Cowboys Vs. Cardinals: Dallas Down At Half

If the Dallas Cowboys are going to deliver a win for their fans on Christmas night, it’ll have to be of the come-from-behind variety as Dallas trails Arizona 21-10 in the third quarter.

Arizona jumped out to an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter, thanks to a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns. Jon Kitna was intercepted by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie who returned the interception for a touchdown before being intercepted by Gregory Toler, who also returned the interception for a touchdown.

After a David Buheler field goal, Arizona scored again, this time on a 74 yard touchdown strike from John Skelton to Andre Roberts, giving Arizona a comfortable 21-3 lead.

Kitna and the Cowboys would respond with a touchdown pass to Jason Witten to close out the first half. Kitna was injured on the play prior to the touchdown, as he was crunched on an attempted touchdown scramble. Kitna stayed in the game to deliver the touchdown pass before headed off to the locker room early.
