Dave Weinberg’s Eagles-Cowboys 2-Minute Drill
Eagles' best number: 81 (length of DeSean Jackson's receiving touchdown)
Eagles' worst number: 115 (Eagles penalty yards)
View from my living room:
Our daily "old people drive" along the Cape May Beachfront Sunday afternoon was infinitely more enjoyable and relaxing.
1. Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup (6 receptions, 121 yards, 2 TDs)
2. Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton (377 passing yards, 3 TDs, 1 interception)
3. Cowboys defensive lineman Randy Gregory (1.5 sacks, 1 pass deflection, 1 forced fumble)
Trailing 30-17, the Eagles had a chance to get back into the game after cornerback Darius Slay's first interception of the season. But three penalties stalled the drive at the Cowboys' 33-yard line. Instead of trying a field goal on fourth-and-15, the Eagles went for it and tight end Zach Ertz was tackled after an 8-yard gain.
Eagles' best play
DeSean Jackson made his return after a missing eight games with a leg injury and made an early impact. He got behind the Dallas secondary, caught Jalen Hurts' deep pass, and raced to the end zone for an 81-yard touchdown.
Eagles' worst play
There's a lot to choose from here, but we'll go with Dalton's 52-yard pass to wide receiver CeeDee Lamb.
Did you notice?
Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox was sidelined for most of the game with a stinger. ... Tackle Matt Pryor committed four penalties. ... Cornerback Michael Jacquet was benched after a series of mistakes. Jalen Mills was moved from safety to cornerback. ... Jalen Hurts had a rough game with two interceptions and a lost fumble, though it looked like his knee touched before the ball came loose. ... The Eagles had 108 rushing yards in the first half and 43 in the second. ... Eagles have yet to score 30 points or more in a game this season and have allowed at least 30 in six games.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson: "We can't make that many mistakes and expect to win games."
Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup: "That was fun. Everybody was eating."
