The Philadelphia Eagles jumped out to a 14-3 lead and then were outscored 34-3 the rest of the way and lost 37-17 to the Cowboys. With that loss, they were officially eliminated from playoff contention.
The Philadelphia Eagles found a way to sneak out of Lincoln Financial Field with a victory thanks to Carson Wentz and the offense. They were down 21-10 with 6 minutes left in the game and Wentz led the team on back-to-back drives to take the lead. His most noticeable throw was to Boston Scott down the sideline for the game-winning touchdown and let me tell you, this throw was ELITE. This was coming after a Jason Kelce facemask which brought the Eagles away from the goal-line and you could argue it was a blessing in disguise based off of their redzone numbers. Doug Pederson had so many head-scratching plays, I don't even know where to begin.
The Eagles (0-2) will look to recover from another gut-wrenching loss this afternoon in a tilt with the Cincinnati Bengals (0-2).

As the Eagles prepared to square off against perpetual NFC East cellar dwellers in the Washington Football Team, the initial expectation was that the Eagles would cruise on a relatively smooth road to victory.
