Cowboys keep falling behind big early in games at home, and season may pass them by

Tony Romo will spend much of his extended weekend off trying to figure out how the Dallas Cowboys can get off to better starts.

The Cowboys (5-6) have fallen behind by 10 points or more before halftime in each of their last four home games. They lost three of them, and needed a big comeback for an overtime victory against two-win Cleveland.

Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor, led Washington to a 28-point second-quarter outburst on Thanksgiving. The Redskins had a 28-3 lead and held on to beat Dallas 38-31.

After building some much-needed momentum with consecutive victories, while the NFC East-leading New York Giants (6-4) lost two in a row, the Cowboys now are tied for second place with the Redskins.
