Dallas Cowboys quarterback Matt Cassel threw for just 61 passing yards in the first half, so he had to find another way to help the team move the football. On a first down late in the second quarter, Cassel looked more like a running back on a 24-yard first down scamper.

Cassel finished the first half as the Cowboys' leading rusher with 35 yards on three carries. The Cowboys trail the Seattle Seahawks 10-6 at halftime.
