Cowboys vs. Chargers score update: Dallas leads 21-13 at half, Tony Romo on fire

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

With Romo hitting on all cylinders, could the Chargers make a successful comeback at home or is it too little too early?

Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys can extend their lead in the NFC East with a win on Sunday, and they seem well on their way to doing that in San Diego. The Cowboys lead, 21-13, at halftime, with Romo having an excellent day: 10-of-15 for 115 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Philip Rivers isn't having a terrible day himself, completing 20-of-25 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown, but he also threw an interception to Sean Lee that was returned for a touchdown. That play in the second quarter has been a major difference in the score thus far, but there's still a half to go for Mike McCoy and the Chargers.

Dallas (2-1) could take a huge lead on the Giants, who fell to 0-4 on Sunday with a blowout loss to the Chiefs. The Redskins (0-3) trail the Raiders, 14-10, at half and the Eagles (1-2) are behind, 21-13, in Denver.

With the Chiefs now at 4-0 and the Broncos possibly on their way to 4-0, the Chargers would have a daunting task ahead of them if they fall to 1-3 with a loss to the Cowboys. They're going to need a very good second half.

San Diego's Dwight Freeney went to the locker room with a quad injury and is questionable to return.
