Eagles vs. Cowboys: 3 Halftime Adjustments Dallas Must Make

Matt King@TheRealMattKingFeatured ColumnistOctober 31, 2011

The Dallas Cowboys knew this was going to be a tough game, going into Philadelphia to face a desperate Eagles team after they just had a bye week. But did anybody think it was going to be this bad?

The Cowboys are getting blown out of the building 24-0. But we've seen comebacks from worse before. Just barely. Here are three keys to a Dallas comeback tonight.

Play Defense

I don't know what else to say. The Eagles are just doing whatever they want on offense. It's stupid how easily they are moving the football.

The 'Boys need to mix up their blitzes or something, because Vick is eating them alive with quick passes and draw plays to McCoy.

At the very least, get a stop on third down and make them punt. Just once.

Find Dez Bryant

I know the Eagles have killer cornerbacks, but you've got one of the premier wideouts in the NFL right now. Let him go for a jump ball or something, but you're not going to have a lot of success if Laurent Robinson is the guy you're going to all game.

Do a Better Job of Blocking the Outside Pass Rush

The Cowboys got victimized on the first drive of the game on the corners, as Philly's ends and linebackers coming around the outside both had too much success getting to Romo.

Dallas needs to do a better job of blocking on the outside, but Romo also has to feel the pressure better and step up in the pocket.
