Halftime Report: Seahawks vs Cowboys

A recap of what went down during the first half of play in the Seahawks' third preseason game of 2016 against the Dallas Cowboys at CenturyLink Field.

SEATTLE -- The Seahawks and Cowboys are tied 10-10 at halftime of the third preseason game, where Seattle's starting offense has scored its first points of exhibition play.

Quarterback Russell Wilson helped give the Seahawks a three-point lead, 10-7, in the second quarter, floating a 9-yard touchdown pass to wideout Paul Richardson in the corner of the end zone to cap a five-play, 58-yard drive that was highlighted by a 27-yard pass from Wilson to receiver Tyler Lockett.

Seattle's first points of the night came off the foot of kicker Steven Hauschka, who capped a 10-play, 68-yard drive with a 27-yard field goal. Wilson connected with three different receivers on the initial scoring drive, finding Doug Baldwin for gains of 27 and three yards, Jermaine Kearse for 10 and 15 yards, and Paul Richardson for 10 yards.

Tony Romo, Dallas' starting quarterback, went down with an apparent back injury on the Cowboys' opening possession after landing awkwardly following a tackle by Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril. Romo was replaced by rookie Dak Prescott, who opened the scoring for the Cowboys by leading a seven-play, 81-yard touchdown drive. Prescott connected with tight end Jason Witten for a 17-yard score to give Dallas an early 7-0 lead.

The Cowboys added a 40-yard field goal to tie the game at 10 just before both teams headed to the locker room for the break.

Several Seattle players have seen their first action of preseason, including strong safety Kam Chancellor, defensive tackle Jordan Hill, running back C.J. Prosise, fullback Will Tukuafu, and offensive lineman J'Marcus Webb, who worked at right tackle with the No. 1 offensive line in the second quarter.
