Dave Weinberg’s Cowboys-Eagles 2-Minute Drill
Here is a quick look back at the Eagles loss to the Cowboys on Saturday night.
Eagles' best number: 916 (DeVonta Smith's season receiving yardage, an Eagles rookie record)
Eagles' worst number: 0 (Cowboys punts in the first half)
View from my living room: We watched "Sing 2" before the game with our three grandsons. The movie was infinitely more entertaining.
1. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (5 touchdown passes)
2. Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson (5 catches, 119 yards, 2 TDs)
3. Eagles tight end Tyree Jackson (TD on his first NFL reception)
Eagles' best play
The Eagles grabbed some early momentum when quarterback Gardner Minshew capped the opening series with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jackson, a former quarterback who switched to tight end.
Eagles' worst play
Wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside dropped an easy pass in the end zone in the third quarter.
The Eagles essentially forfeited the game when coach Nick Sirianni benched almost all of his starters to rest them for the playoffs. Several others made cameo appearances before heading to the sideline.
