Trent Cole: C+
Trent Cole has been the great disappearing act for the Philadelphia Eagles this season. He was lined up against a very talented left tackle in Tyron Smith, but still one that has struggled for much of 2012. Cole finished the game with two tackles and a shared sack, which is disappointing for a player of Cole’s caliber.
Brandon Graham: A+
Brandon Graham was dominant in his first game as a full-time starter following the release of Jason Babin. He registered a sack and a tackle for a loss in the first four defensive plays of the game, and finished with six tackles, two tackles for losses, and two sacks.
Mike Patterson: C
At times, Mike Patterson was lined up as the nose guard in a 5-2 formation for the Eagles. He finished the game with just one tackle though and no quarterback pressures.
Cullen Jenkins: B
Cullen Jenkins had a productive game against a subpar Cowboys interior offensive line, racking up two tackles, a quarterback hurry, and a tackle for a loss.
Fletcher Cox: C
Fletcher Cox didn’t even show up in the box score but he did miss extensive time due to his tailbone contusion acting up again.
Vinny Curry: C
After his terrific debut last week, Vinny Curry didn’t make quite the same impact tonight against the Cowboys. He had just one tackle and that’s it.
Cedric Thornton: B
Cedric Thornton has emerged as a solid piece of the rotation on the interior defensive line. He had two tackles today.
Derek Landri: C+
Derek Landri had two tackles and one for a loss in limited snaps, although he did get blocked out of the equation on DeMarco Murray’s touchdown run.
Phillip Hunt: D+
Phillip Hunt had just one tackle and no quarterback pressures in a handful of snaps, as he provided his usual little to no impact on the game.
Darryl Tapp: C-
Darryl Tapp continues to get snaps without making plays for the Eagles. Tonight he had two tackles and no pressures/sacks/hits.
