Cowboys and Eagles trade punt after punt in 1st half

Jeffrey G. Pittenger-USA TODAY S

Chris Jones and Donnie Jones have gotten a lot more work on Sunday so far than Tony Romo or Nick Foles.

The Cowboys and Eagles have played the first half of their Week 7 matchup in Philadelphia, but punters Chris Jones and Donnie Jones have seemed to get a lot more work than any of the star offensive players on either team. With a halftime score of 3-0, the two teams have combined for 13 punts already.

Cowboys punter Chris Jones has punted six times for 230 yards, even though he only averages a little more than four punts per game this season. Eagles punter Donnie Jones has punted seven times for 334 yards, though he only averages about 4.6 punts per game.

With both teams in the top four in scoring this year while also ranking in the bottom third in scoring defense, nobody expected this game to only feature a single field goal as the scoring through two quarters. The over/under on the game was set at 55.
