Cowboys open second half with a touchdown drive to take 14-13 lead
The first time the Cowboys had the lead, it lasted only 5:27. They will try to make this one hold up.
The Cowboys opened the second half with a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown drive, eating up the first 7:39 of the third quarter. Dalton Schultz scored on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott.
Prescott now is 14-of-21 for 149 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.
The Cowboys overcame two false starts in the drive and now have nine penalties for 57 yards. They benefited from a defensive holding penalty called on Darnay Holmes.
Holmes was cited for holding CeeDee Lamb on a long incompletion, but it did not appear on replay that he held. The penalty delivered an automatic first down to the Cowboys, who faced a third-and-seven at the Giants 37.
Ezekiel Elliott has led the team’s ground game today with 10 carries for 82 yards, while Tony Pollard has only 40 yards on 14 carries.
