    Halftime Report: The Cowboys look out of sync, Lions lead 6-3

    After two-quarters of Sunday afternoon action in Jerry World, the  lead the 6-3. All eyes were on QB in the first half, as he was returning from his week one , and on his opening drive, he went three-and-out.

    A drop from WR , an ineffective run from RB , and a sack on Prescott– it wasn't looking too hot for him. On the next drive, after the Cowboys' got a quick three-and-out on the Lions, Prescott got his first completion on the day to TE for seven yards, but the Boys went three-and-out again.

    After quickly stopping the Lions on their first drive, the defense allowed the QB and the to seamlessly move down the field with a mix of sweeps, runs, and passes on their second drive. But on a crucial third down in the , CB broke up a pass intended for WR Kalif Raymond, and the defense held them to a 40-yard FG.

    The Cowboys responded with a 12-play, 72-yard drive that spanned from the end of the first quarter to the second and got a 22-yard field goal from K . Although only three points, Prescott got back into rhythm, and his best throw came when he connected with Lamb for a 24-yard catch.

    On their next drive, the Lions showed flashes on offense, but without their two best playmakers (RB D'Andre Swift & WR Amon-Ra St. Brown– who got injured in the first quarter), they couldn't create big plays. They wound up getting into Cowboys' territory and getting another field goal from K , who connected from 53-yards.

    After getting into a rhythm on the last drive, you figured Prescott would come out slinging on the ensuing drive. However, Prescott threw two incompletions (one near interception), and the offense had another three-and-out. You could hear boos from the fans inside .

    With momentum swaying towards Detroit, the Lions had an opportunity to increase their lead, but the “ 4.0” came through with a big play when S got a sack on Goff, as commentator said it prevented a touchdown.

    Following the big stop, the Cowboys marched down the field behind Elliotts' runs before he got injured near mid-field. With a on the Lions, the Cowboys got near the red zone again and had an opportunity to score.

    Prescott would connect with Brown for 14-yards, but he would fumble inside the three-yard line, and the Lions recovered. They would just run a couple of plays before the half ended.

    Overall, Prescott and the offense are not on the same page. From overthrown and dropped balls to inefficient runs and – it looks bad.

    On defense, they have been able to stop the Lions. But if the offense can't get going and the defense isn't fresh- we may see an upset.
