The NFL doesn’t get much better than an old-fashioned NFC East rivalry game to determine sole possession of first place in the division. That is precisely what was on the line in Week 7 as the Philadelphia Eagles hosted the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday.
It did not play out as the Philly faithful had hoped, however, as the Birds offense went anemic. Nick Foles couldn't hit the broad side of a barn starting in place of Vick, hitting on 11 of 29 attempts for just 80 yards before exiting in the second half. The Eagles managed only a field goal as a result, falling 17-3 to the Cowboys.
Tony Romo paced the Dallas offense with 317 yards passing and a touchdown to Terrance Williams. Dez Bryant also added 100 yards receiving on eight receptions. It wasn't a huge day, but missing running back DeMarco Murray and defensive end DeMarcus Ware, they'll certainly take it.
Big win for Big D as they hop into the driver's seat in the NFC East with the W, not to mention extend Philly's season-long drought at home. Be sure to scroll down for or more highlights and analysis from all of the day's action.
