Cowboys score at Buccaneers: Live updates, game stats, highlights like Tom Brady, Tampa stop in first half

The Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are half way in the books in their Super Wild Card Weekend matchup. At halftime, Dak Prescott and company have a solid grip on this matchup, leading by double digits.

Both offenses were sluggish out of the gate as each recorded consecutive three-and-outs to start the game. Dallas then came alive on its third possession of the evening, driving 80 yards in seven plays before Dak Prescott connected with Dalton Schultz for the game’s first touchdown. When Tampa Bay then started moving the ball and drove to the Cowboys five yard line it seemed to open the floodgates. However, that’s when Tom Brady faced some pressure and threw an interception in the end zone to Jayron Kearse. That gave Dallas the ball back, and they would make the Bucks pay to the tune of a 15-play touchdown drive. The Cowboys would add another touchdown to their total before halftime, but Brett Maher missed all three of his extra point attempts. Meanwhile, this is the first time Tom Brady has sat out the first half of a playoff game since his postseason debut in the infamous “Duck Rule” game against the Raiders in the 2001 Divisional Round.

Whoever ultimately wins this game will punch their ticket to Santa Clara for a matchup with the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round. So, will the Cowboys keep their title dreams alive? Or will Brady have another second-half comeback? We are about to find out. Watch for a live blog of Monday’s matchup as the game unfolds.
