Cowboys vs. Redskins score update: Alfred Morris TD ties game at 7

USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins entered halftime tied, after Jason Witten and Alfred Morris found paydirt for their respective teams in the second quarter.

The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins traded touchdowns in the second quarter, leaving the two teams with one half to decide which will win the NFC East and advance to the postseason.

Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys struck first. After a pair of first-quarter interceptions, Romo did well on his team's first drive of the second quarter, completing all four of his passes on a drive that started on the Cowboys' 11-yard line. Most of the work was due to DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones, but Romo dealt the key strike: Jason Witten danced back and forth in the end zone, eventually squeezing open for a second over the arm of Redskins linebacker Perry Riley. The play appeared to be snapped late, as the Cowboys could have been flagged for a delay of game penalty.

Robert Griffin III still looks out of sorts, now having completed 5-of-11 passes for only 43 yards, but he wasn't really needed on the team's touchdown drive. It was all Alfred Morris, who carried the ball 45 yards on four carries, including a 17-yard touchdown run to the left. Evan Royster and Griffin contributed runs as well.

The Cowboys opted to punt instead of attempting a 52-yard field goal with less than a minute left. It was a questionable decision, with the Redskins swapping coverage teams and the punt eventually bounding into the end zone.
