2nd Quarter Highlights
Both teams strike for touchdowns this quarter. The Eagles start to get the running game going a bit, while the Cowboys are more effective through the air. There is also a turnover early in the quarter.
:26 -- Romo throws a pick to Maxwell sitting back in zone. Maxwell with a long return setting up the Eagles inside the 20.
1:10 -- Bradford gives it to Murray on Read Option. Murray picks up 13, Bradford is injured behind the play.
2:25 -- Murray gets it on the Read Option and gets the TD down near the goal line. (10-0)
3:15 -- Big return by Dunbar sets up the Cowboys inside Eagles territory.
4:32 -- Kendricks drops a potential pick while sitting in a zone over the middle.
5:10 -- Corner route from Romo to Street goes for a 33-yard TD. I went for the pick rather than trying to knock the pass away and it cost me. (10-7)
6:40 -- Hardy sacks Bradford on first down.
7:20 -- Screen pass to Celek. I make the wrong read and cost myself a bigger gain.

16:04 -- McClain doesn’t bite on Celek’s move, nearly ducks under the route to pick off the pass.
16:42 -- Bradford scrambles on third down and picks up first.
17:13 -- Bradford is sacked (Agholor is open on the play but Bradford can’t step up to get the throw off).
17:46 -- Bradford is sacked again, Greg Hardy with his second sack.
18:07 -- Coverage sack this time, and Bradford takes his third straight hit as the game goes to half.
