Giants Vs. Cowboys Score: Tony Romo, Dallas Lead New York 17-15 At Halftime

There are some hard hits being passed between the Cowboys and the Giants but neither offense is running into that much difficulty in the first half. Dan Bailey's 49 yard field goal with 20 seconds in the half put the Cowboys back in front 17-15. 

The Giants began the scoring in the second quarter when Brandon Jacobs capped off a 10 play, 80 yard drive with a one yard scoring run. Dallas came right back with an 80 yard drive of their own and re-took the lead with a Tony Romo to Laurent Robinson nine yard touchdown. 

Dallas forced a punt on New York's next possession but Felix Jones coughed up a fumble deep in the Cowboys own territory to set Eli Manning up with good field position. The Giants were unable to punch it in however and had to settle for a 26 yard Lawrence Tynes field goal to make the score 15-14 with just 1:07 remaining in the half. Romo and company then marched 49 yards and Bailey's field goal put the Cowboys back in front at the intermission. 

Romo is off to a solid start completing 10 of 14 passes for 104 yards and two touchdowns. Felix Jones has 81 yards rushing on eight carries but lost a fumble in the first half. Laurent Robinson caught two passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in the first half. 

The Giants defense has been in Eli Manning's face the entire first half. Manning completed just 9 of 19 passes for 146 yards in the first half. Brandon Jacobs has 62 yards on 13 carries while Hakeem Nicks caught four passes for 105 yards.
