The Cowboys began the game in perfect fashion when they marched downfield, but were also aided by a taunting penalty on Jerrell Freeman to keep their drive alive, which ended when Tony Romo found Terrance Williams over the middle for a nine-yard score.
Indianapolis went three-and-out in their next drive, but tried a trick play off their punt as Pat McAfee threw downfield for Dewey McDonald, only for the defensive back to drop the ball. The Cowboys punished the Colts for their mistake as Romo fired a strike to Dez Bryant for a 19-yard score.
The Cowboys moved further ahead in the second quarter as Romo continued to pick apart the Colts' secondary, finding Cole Beasley over the middle before the receiver made an excellent move to dodge a tackle and sprint into the endzone for a touchdown.
Dallas continued their domination as Romo engineered another solid drive, which included some fine running by DeMarco Murray, and the running back ended the move with a score as he powered over on the goal line.
