Cowboys Vs. Bills: Dallas Leads Buffalo 28-7 At Half

Dallas' offensive gameplan has been perfect so far, as the Cowboys have opened up a commanding 28-7 lead over the Buffalo Bills after the first half of play.

Dez Bryant set the tone early, as he completed an acrobatic catch for a 34 yard touchdown on Dallas' first drive of the game.

Rob Ryan's defense continue the ferocious pace, forcing the Bills to go three-and-out on offense, highlighted by a DeMarcus Ware sack.

Romo then led the Cowboys on a methodical 12 play, 78 yard drive that culminated with a five yard touchdown pass to Laurent Robinson, giving the Cowboys a 14-0 lead.

After Buffalo missed a field goal on their next possession, the Cowboys took over on their own 42. Romo wasted no time, connecting with Robinson once again on a 58 yard touchdown pass, giving the Cowboys a 21-0 lead.

Buffalo responded with a touchdown of their own, as Ryan Fitzpatrick connected with David Nelson on a three yard touchdown pass, which cut Dallas' lead down to 21-7. Sadly, though, for the Bills, the most memorable thing about that touchdown was Nelson celebrating the touchdown by running over to his girlfriend, who is a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, and giving her the ball. Awkward all around, to say the least.

The Cowboys weren't done scoring, though, as Romo led the Cowboys on a 14 play, 80 yard drive, which took more than seven minutes off the clock. DeMarco Murray finished the drive off with a one yard touchdown run, which gave Dallas a 28-7 lead.

Through the first half, the Cowboys have absolutely dominated the Bills, and it's finally evidenced by the scoreboard. The Cowboys have 289 total yards compared to Buffalo's 91. If the Bills are going to make a game out of this, they'll need serious halftime adjustments.
