Shocking turnaround for the Cowboys
IRVING, Texas -- Two quick turnovers by Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has translated into the Cowboys trailing the Eagles, 20-14, in the first half. Both mistakes have been extremely careless by Romo. After dropping the ball in the end zone, Romo recovered it, but didn't protect it as he was being tackled. Safety Brian Dawkins smartly attacked the the ball and linebacker Chris Gocong jumped on it for a touchdown.
Romo came back strong, however. The Cowboys ran a reverse to rookie running back Felix Jones and they used a screen to tight end Martellus Bennett to get deep into Eagles territory. Terrell Owens followed by scoring another touchdown on a little slant from Romo to give the Cowboys a 21-20 lead. Owens got inside-position on Dawkins, who never had a chance. There have not been any organized celebrations from Owens in this game -- just flexing his muscles, which may be a reference to his new workout book.
