Cowboys vs. Raiders 2013 score update: Oakland leading Dallas at halftime, 21-14

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders are off to a hot start against the Cowboys.

The Oakland Raiders lead the Dallas Cowboys, 21-14, at halftime of their Thanksgiving game.

The Raiders got off to a fast start when Dallas' Terrance Williams fumbled the opening kickoff and Oakland's Greg Jenkins ran it in from 23 yards for the touchdown.

DeMarco Murray had the answer for the Cowboys later in the quarter, scoring a touchdown from 2 yards to even the score. Raiders running back Rashad Jennings had the next two scores in the game, collecting a pair of 1-yard touchdowns to extend Oakland's lead to 21-7.

The Cowboys managed to keep the game close, scoring a touchdown with 14 seconds remaining in the half when Murray punched it in from 4 yards.

All in all, the half was uneventful. Both teams relied on the running game and didn't have a ton of fireworks. Williams' fumble on the opening kick off was the only turnover of the half.
