How to Watch Eagles vs. Cowboys

20 Novembre 2017

He has yet to break 100 yards this season, though he has caught three touchdowns over his last two games.

NOTES: The Cowboys and Eagles, who were playing for the first time this season, split their series in each of the past four years. They miss Ezekiel Elliott, who will sit the next four games because of a suspension.

Carson Wentz threw a pair of touchdown passes as Philadelphia scored on its first three possessions of the second half and surged to a 37-9 victory on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium.

Bad news: the Eagles did not come away with at least three points.

Thoughts of winning the NFC East for the second straight year should be gone.

The Eagles did this without kicker Jake Elliott, who left the game after the first half after suffering a head injury in making a tackle on the opening kickoff.

The Cowboys appeared to have fixed the problems of missing injured left tackle Tyron Smith and 2016 All-Pro linebacker Sean Lee from a week earlier, when they allowed eight sacks of Prescott along with three Atlanta scoring drives following Lee's injury in a 27-7 loss to the Falcons.

Dak Prescott had the first three-interception game of his career after he had the first two-interception first half of his career.

The Eagles trailed the Cowboys 9-7 after a slow first half. His longest completion was 19 yards.

"It just shows we're resilient", Wentz said. "We were a little off in the passing game and you could see Carson getting a little frustrated a bit". The pass game's going, the run game is not. A better offense and a better team would have buried Philadelphia, instead they're still in great position to get a victory over their division rival.

Regardless of who steps up tonight for the Cowboys, I believe we are in for a thrilling game that will take both passionate fan bases through enough twists and turns to carry into Monday morning. Now that Wentz just needs to execute more "routine" pass plays that are set up by the run, he's almost impossible to stop. Cowboys RB Darren McFadden was a healthy scratch for Sunday's game, meaning Dallas had just two active running backs.

Prescott was 18 of 31 for 145 yards for a career-worst 30.4 passer rating before backup Cooper Rush took mop-up duty.

The running game continued to play a large role in Sunday night's win with 215 rushing yards as running backs Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, Corey Clement, and Kenjon Barner each got snaps against the Cowboys.

There isn't much time to figure out a way for this offense to improve. The Eagles had a 71-yard run, a 30-yard run and a 17-yard run.

Injury reports: Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is questionable with an ankle injury, though he and coach Doug Pederson say they're confident he'll play.

Add in the ability Switzer has in the return game tonight, and a few splash plays with the ball in his hands on offense could easily make the Cowboys' fourth round pick an X-factor. On the pivotal third-down play, Prescott looked Bryant's way yet again, but the softer coverage played by Darby put him in ideal position to break up the throw in the end zone. But that was it more than anything else. "They made plays and we didn't, later in that first half".
