Dallas needs to get the run game going in the second half. and have just 18 combined yards on nine carries. Only a 33-yard run by has kept the overall stats looking decent.

The Cowboys will get the ball to start the third quarter. With the Saints severely shorthanded tonight, hopefully Dallas shows their superiority more in the next 30 minutes.
