Dave Weinberg’s Cowboys-Eagles 2-Minute Drill
A quick look back at the Eagles 26-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
Eagles' best number: 3 (Eagles interceptions)
Eagles' worst number: 2 (Cowboys second-half touchdowns)
View from my living room:
Cowboys-Eagles was preceded by an entertaining football game in my grandsons' backyard featuring the Bandicoots against the Devils. At one point, we were all on the same team.
- Eagles safety C.J. Gardner Johnson (2 interceptions)
- Eagles place-kicker Jake Elliott (2 field goals, including 51-yarder)
- Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (13 carries, 81 yards, TD)
Eagles' best play
Gardner Johnson left the game in the third quarter with a left hand/arm injury, but returned in the fourth quarter to make a diving interception that essentially sealed the win.
Eagles' worst play
The Eagles attempted a two-point conversion after a touchdown in the fourth quarter that never had a chance of succeeding.
The Cowboys had some momentum after cutting the Eagles' lead to 20-17. The Eagles answered the challenge with a 13-play, 75-yard drive that ended with quarterback Jalen Hurts tossing a 7-yard TD pass to WR DeVonta Smith with 7:02 left.
