Giants-Cowboys Halftime Score: Dallas Leads New York, 7-3

A 10-yard touchdown reception by wide receiver Kevin Ogletree from quarterback Tony Romo with 1 minute, 10 seconds to go in the second quarter has helped the Dallas Cowboys take a 7-3 halftime lead over the New York Giants.

Ogletree's reception capped a solid seven-play, 73-yard march that answered a small-scoring drive by the Giants, who took a 3-0 lead on a Lawrence Tynes' 22-yard field goal that came with 9:14 to go in the half.

Tynes' kick capped a disappointing four-play, (-3)-yard drive that was setup by an interception from New York linebacker Michael Boley, who snagged a pass from Romo out of the air and it ran down to the Cowboys' two-yard line.

After a horse-collar-tackle penalty was called on the Dallas offense and the ball was moved to the one-yard line, the Giants' offense failed to punch the ball into the end zone.

In the first quarter, the Giants had a drive move down to the Cowboys' 29-yard line but it ended abruptly after running back David Wilson was stripped by Cowboys' linebacker Sean Lee. The ball was picked up by safety Barry Church who was tackled at the Dallas 30-yard line.

Overall, Dallas has out gained New York 158-85 in total yards, most of that coming through the air -- 130 passing yards.
