    Halftime Report: WR Michael Gallup scores in his return, Cowboys lead Commanders 12-7

    After two-quarters of a classic- East battle, the lead the 12-7. Out of the gate, the Cowboys received the ball and showed the ability to move the ball effortlessly against a stout Commanders .

    However, they were stopped in the first drive and had to settle for a field goal. On their next three drives, the began to look discombobulated, and they had to punt twice–and only got another field goal.

    It felt like it was going to be a long day for the offense, but before the end of the half, QB turned a “switch” on, led a 15-play, 75-yard drive, and found WR for a 9-yard touchdown.

    Although the extra point would be blocked, it was an encouraging sign to see the offense get a touchdown on the board. Here are the stats from some of the standout offensive players:

    • WR Michael Gallup (2 catches, 24 yards, one touchdown)
    • WR (4 catches, 59 yards)
    • QB Cooper Rush (9/16, 127 yards, one touchdown)
    • K (2/2 FGs)

    Defensive-wise, the Dan-Quinn-led caused havoc for QB the whole first half. Although they let up a TD, the defensive line has been in the backfield and forced the Commanders to punt on three of their five drives.

    Some defensive standouts included:

    If there was anything that needed to be cleaned up by the team in the second half, it was their play calling on offense and their . There were too many times they went away from the run game (when it worked), and a lot of yards were given up to Washington's RBs.

    Stay tuned for the post-game post.
