Cowboys Vs. Giants Score: Dallas Leads At Halftime, 7-3

The Dallas Cowboys lead the New York Giants 7-3 at halftime of the 2012 NFL season opener between the two NFC East rivals. With less than two minutes to go in the first half, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo scrambled out of the pocket as the Giants' defensive front pressured Dallas' offensive line, and found wide receiver Kevin Ogletree for a 10-yard touchdown score to give the Cowboys their first lead of the game.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Giants got on the board first with a 22-yard field goal by Lawrence Tynes. Later in the quarter, it took the Cowboys offense seven plays to go 73 yards in 2:33 for the touchdown.

It's worth noting that Romo was sacked on the second play from scrimmage and he did throw an interception.
