Both starting quarterbacks didn’t exactly shine in this game. While the game was a real defensive battle in the first half, things started to open up in the second half as the teams adjusted. However, turnovers would hurt both teams with the Cowboys’ special teams turning over being the ultimate dagger. Joey McKnight came up the middle towards the Cowboys’ punter McBriar, blocked the punt, and ran the ball in for the tying score.
