Halftime Report: Shorthanded Cowboys Can’t Get Going in KC

The Cowboys' missing stars may have finally caught up with them. Shorthanded and showing it, Dallas is struggling to function in Kansas City and trails the Chiefs 16-3 at halftime.

With WR out on the COVID list and injured OT surprisingly not playing after reports all week that he would, Dallas' has been unable to get much going. had just 68 passing yards and has been sacked three times already, with some key throws being dropped by the backup receivers.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs have had little trouble moving the ball when they've had it. Tyreek Hill has a 33-yard run on a reverse plus another 49 yards receiving. KC has scored twice on short runs by Clyde Edwards-Helaire and , plus had a field goal.

It looked like Dallas might have a big momentum swing when strip-sacked Pat Mahomes late in the second quarter and recovered it. But a few plays later, Prescott threw it up to near the endzone and got picked off by former Cowboy .

While the Chiefs are a much more respectable opponent than the Broncos, this first half was very reminiscent of what we saw two weeks ago against Denver. Will the Cowboys respond better in the second half this time, or is this afternoon about to get a lot longer?
