Well, that stunk. The Indianapolis Colts were completely dominated in the first half and trail 28-0 at halftime.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo completed 13 of 14 passes for 155 yards and three touchdowns and DeMarco Murray has rushed for 40 yards and a score. There have been a lot of terrible moments in that first half for the Colts. The taunting penalty by Jerrell Freeman that gave Dallas new life on their opening drive. The dropped pass on a strange fake punt decision. The dropped passes from the offensive players (including three from Dwayne Allen). The defensive collapse. The coaching mishaps. The penalties (especially by Xavier Nixon). And the list goes on and on… in short, it was an absolutely terrible half from the Colts.
It will be interesting to see what they decide to do in the second half in terms of resting their starters. Will they decide to rest any of them now that this game is out of hand? This one absolutely, in no way is Andrew Luck's fault (and if you say that, then you're not watching the game), but even for Luck a 28-point halftime deficit is a lot. And if the Colts aren't going to even attempt to try, then why put the starters our there?
If you're brave enough to watch the second half of the game between the Colts and the Cowboys, then here's an open thread for you to discuss it.
