The Cowboys’ defense was outstanding, holding the Eagles to only 209 passing yards (not counting yards lost due to sacks) and 84 rushing yards on the day. The ‘Boys did a sensational job stopping Philly’s top player—running back LeSean McCoy—by holding him to 81 total yards and keeping him out of the end zone.
Offensively, the Cowboys didn’t play their best game. The yards were there—368 of them—but Dallas managed just two touchdowns. Two weeks removed from scoring 48 points in a loss, though, the Cowboys will take a win any way they can get it.
Read on for individual position grades for Dallas after the big win. Each position will be graded as a whole using a combination of stats and early film study results.
