The Cowboys have been outscored 134-73 in the first half of games this season. It has been even worse at home, with Dallas getting outscored 81-30 in the first half of its five games at Cowboys Stadium. In the past three home games, they have been outscored 64-13, all three losses.
The Cowboys have led at intermission in only three games this season -- all three wins -- and they were tied at the half in Atlanta.
"We haven’t started fast enough in all three phases," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "That’s a real simple answer. Typically on offense, our issue has been there have been some third downs we haven’t been to convert early on and then they’ve had some success against us moving the ball and scoring some points. It hasn’t been as much of a turnover thing as it was earlier on in the year. It’s just we’re not getting the conversions when we need them, and that’s what we need to do. We just need to be able to execute those ball plays to keep drives going and give ourselves a chance to score some points."
