Haltime Report: Cowboys 9, Seahawks 7

Despite a mostly dominant performance in the first half, the Dallas Cowboys have only a two-point lead at halftime over the Seattle Seahawks.

Dallas possessed the ball for over 18 minutes compared to just 11:40 for Seattle. They outgained the Seahawks 179 yards to just 44 yards. Unfortunately, they couldn’t finish drives and have relied on three Dan Bailey field goals to build their tenuous lead.

The major swing in the game occurred in the 2nd quarter. DeMarcus Lawrence made one of the most athletic sacks you’ll ever see, chasing down Russell Wilson for a huge loss which led to a punt. On the following drive, Dez Bryant caught his only pass so far in the game and then lost a fumble to the Seahawks.

Seattle took that turnover and scored the game’s only touchdown so far, with Wilson finding Jimmy Graham in the endzone. That drive was the only offensive glimmer the Seahawks have shown; Wilson has just 35 passing yards so far and has been sacked three times for losses totaling 33 yards.

Ezekiel Elliott’s return has definitely been felt. Zeke has 73 yards already on 15 carries and looks like his usual self.

Seattle gets the ball to start the 3rd quarter.

  1. I blame tonight’s game on dez Bryant his crying ass on the sideline was a distraction to the team and that’s why we loss sometimes when things don’t go your way just relax but he can’t do that and that’s why we loss tonight his first fumble of the game fucked us up for the rest of the night. But I still love them boys how about them
