IRVING, Texas – The Seattle Seahawks’ 26-year wait for a Thanksgiving Day appearance was hardly worth the wait.
At halftime, the Seahawks trail 24-6 – and it might be even worse than the score indicates. The Dallas Cowboys scored touchdowns on their first three offensive drives and added a field goal on their fourth.
The four scoring drives included 26 plays, 17 of which came on first down. Only three of them came on third down.
Mercifully, the Seahawks stopped Dallas on three plays on the Cowboys’ fifth drive of the half.
Dallas had touchdown drives of 71, 43 and 80 to start the game. By halftime, the Cowboys had piled up 266 yards and 17 first downs, averaging 8.1 yards per play. The Seahawks, by comparison, had 161 yards, nine first downs and averaged 5.0 yards per play.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has completed 14 of 21 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns.
