It's a dream matchup at AT&T Stadium, as the Eagles look to improve to 5-2 against a Cowboys squad that's exiting the bye on a five-game winning streak. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has surprised everyone with his outstanding play in Tony Romo's absence. Or will the Eagles shake things up in the NFC East and the NFC playoff standings with an upset victory on Sunday Night Football.
The difference is the lack of a solid running game. I have great players around me-the offensive line and playmakers at running back and receiver. Aside from the big hit which earned Murray a $21,000 fine because he used the crown of his helmet to hit Square, the Cowboys drive stalled at the Eagles' 40-yard line.
The Eagles have the league's No. 1-ranked red-zone defense, and Hicks showed why with his first pick of the season.
Ryan Mathews scored a six yard touchdown with 3:41 to go in the first half, tying up the score 10-10. Romo Could Get Hurt Again After being injury prone over the last couple years, it has to be in the back of the Cowboys' mind that Romo could go down again as soon as he comes back.
With the added tidbit that the Cowboys nearly ruled Bryant active before their Week 7 bye, Glazer implied that the wideout should be good to roll, despite practicing in a limited capacity all week. Josh Huff led in receiving with 39 yards in four receptions while Matthews had 27 yards in a catch.
Sturgis had to make the kick twice after the Cowboys called timeout just before the first successful attempt. We thought the Cincinnati game could be troubling for the rookie quarterback. Jason Witten added 42 yards in four catches.
Already, some are proclaiming this the first meeting in a quarterback rivalry that will eventually match Brady vs. Manning, Elway vs. Marino, and, more recently, Gabbert vs. Keenum. At 9:00 AM ET, the Emmy-nominated NFL GameDay Morning takes viewers up to kickoff of the early games, with host Rich Eisen, analysts Steve Mariucci, Marshall Faulk, Kurt Warner and Michael Irvin, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, and NFL Media analytics expert Cynthia Frelund.
But the Vikings got to Wentz with their stout defensive line and blitz pressure. The only loss of the season featured an offense that only mustered 19 points. The Eagles never got the ball in overtime after Prescott led the 75-yard scoring drive.
The Eagles are leading 13-10 with 10:32 left in the third quarter.
When Eagles linebacker swatted down Orton's pass to Murray in the right flat on fourth-and-1, the Eagles offense was no longer grounded. Dez Bryant will make his return after missing most of the season with a knee injury. The 12-year veteran passed LaDainian Tomlinson into eighth place all-time in National Football League history for all-purpose yards from scrimmage. Sproles contributed 23 yards in two receptions. A delay of game on Orton made it first-and-15.
Speaking of that Cowboys' quarterback, is he going to ever have a bad game? "They take it in stride".
Defensive back Micah Hyde said prayer was needed to stop Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, and the Packers might need divine intervention this week. Thankfully, referee Gene Steratore would let the game play on and not let one of his calls affect the outcome of a significant game. A field goal raised their tally to 10-3. This was their fourth-best starting field position of the game. He was 8/10 on game-winning field goals in his three-year career.
The Eagles boast the best defense and special teams the Dallas Cowboys have faced to-date. "Like, this is my first touchdown throw to Witten". Tonight we have an NFC East showdown in Arlington Texas.
