At halftime of Week 13 of “Sunday Night Football,” the Dallas Cowboys led the Indianapolis Colts 21-13.
The Dallas offense was up-and-down in the first half, with the Cowboys moving the ball relatively easily on two early touchdown drives (12 plays, 73 yards; 6 plays, 56 yards) and CeeDee Lamb (3 catches, 48 yards; 2 carries, 23 yards) and Toney Pollard (8 carries, 34 yards; 2 catches, 15 yards) found the end zone, but after two three-and-outs and a brutal interception by Dak Prescott a few plays later, he was nearly picked off.
Indianapolis was given two short-field drives that turned each into field goals, while the team’s first touchdown came on a five-play, 79-yard drive in the first quarter. Two big plays saw Indy take advantage of each of Dallas’ outside corners as Alec Pierce (1 catch, 45 yards) beat Anthony Brown deep down the field for a big gain and Ashton Tullin (1 catch, 14 yards) worked Trevon. Dix on the double move for a red-zone score.
The Colts had a chance to retake the lead late in the second quarter, but a Matt Ryan pass was deflected by Brown and then sacked by former Colts safety Malik Hooker. Hooker’s return got Dallas into scoring territory, where Prescott found Michael Gallup (2 catches, 20 yards) for a touchdown to extend Dallas’ advantage.
Will the Cowboys continue their winning streak or will the Colts make a comeback? We will find out soon. In the meantime, keep it locked to our live blog throughout the evening as we keep you updated with stats, scores and highlights.
