Dave Weinberg’s Eagles-Cowboys 2 Minute Drill
Eagles’ best number: 5 (Sacks by Eagles defense)
Eagles’ worst number: 191 (CeeDee Lamb receiving yards)
View from my living room:
I took advantage of nice weather by washing our cars before enjoying an afternoon of NFL Red Zone prior to Eagles-Cowboys. I would have done more outside, but I think we had about 20 minutes of daylight.
- Eagles Defensive End Brandon Graham (1.5 sacks on back-to-back plays in fourth quarter).
- Cowboys Wide Receiver CeeDee Lamb (8 receptions for 191 yards).
- Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott (29-for-44, 374 yards, 3 TDs).
Eagles’ best play
Graham entered the game with just a half-sack on the season, but really came through by sacking Prescott on consecutive plays in the fourth quarter.
Eagles’ worst play
The secondary struggled throughout the game. No one could cover Lamb. And a pass interference penalty on cornerback James Bradberry gave the Cowboys a shot at a last-second victory.
The game wasn’t decided until the final play. On third-and-26 with five seconds remaining in regulation, Lamb caught a pass at the 4-yard line, but was stopped short of the goal-line by rookie Defensive Back Sydney Brown and Safety Reed Blankenship.
Did you notice?
The Eagles head into their bye week with a league-best 8-1 record.… Second-year Cowboys Hybrid Safety/Linebacker Markquese Bell, a Bridgeton High School grad, had eight tackles.… Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown had seven catches for 66 yards, ending his league-record streak of six straight games with at least 125 receiving yards.… Cowboys tight end Luke Schoonmaker was originally credited with a fourth-down touchdown catch early in the fourth quarter, but replay officials ruled he was down inside the 1-yard line.… Prescott was credited with a 2-point conversion that would have cut the Eagles’ lead to 28-25, but replays showed he stepped out of bounds at the 1-yard line.… Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts appeared to hurt his leg late in the second quarter, but stayed in the game.… Eagles running back Rashaad Penny had 2 carries for 8 yards.
