Cowboys vs. Redskins score update: Dallas leads Washington 14-6 at halftime

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Despite injuries to two key players, the Cowboys lead the Redskins by eight points at halftime.

The Dallas Cowboys lead the Washington Redskins 14-6 at halftime of Sunday Night Football in Week 6.

DeMarco Murray opened up the scoring for the Cowboys with a four-yard touchdown run. He would later exit the game with an injury, though, along with DeMarcus Ware. The status of both players will be crucial with eight points separating the two sides.

A special teams play broke things open late in the second half when Dwayne Harris returned a punt 86 yards for a touchdown after a slow start to the scoring.

Washington has moved the football well all night but hasn't been able to finish drives with touchdowns. Robert Griffin III has been solid, finding rookie tight end Jordan Reed most often. Reed has four catches for 58 yards, while Griffin has thrown for 134 yards and rushed for 29 yards.
