Actually, I watched the game in our son's living room, where we ate pizza and stromboli while helping our three grandsons get ready for Santa. After the game, it was time for my mom Patsy's "special" egg nog. Merry Christmas!
1. Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat (42-yard pick six, 1.5 sacks)
2. Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb (10 receptions, 120 yards, 2 TDs)
3. Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (8 receptions, 113 yards, 2 TDs)
Eagles' best play
Defensive end Josh Sweat intercepted Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and rumbled 42 yards for a touchdown on Dallas' first possession. It was the first interception return for a touchdown by a defensive lineman in the NFL this season and first by an Eagles' defensive lineman since Juqua Parker in 2008.
Eagles' worst play
Cowboys wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, who just signed with the team last week, broke loose for a 51-yard gain on a third-and-30 pass from Prescott that led to a touchdown that tied the game at 34-34.
The Eagles looked poised to at least force overtime until running back Miles Sanders coughed up a fumble on their next-to-last possession that resulted in a Cowboys' field goal that extended their lead to six points.
