Eagles stays undefeated, defeating Dallas 26-17
Philadelphia- The Eagles hold on late to keep their winning streak alive.
Going into Sunday Night, the match-up between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys was the talk of the town. Pride was on the line, as there was a lot of trash talk prior to the game, but all of the talking was halted when both teams stepped onto the field with something to prove. Philly wanted to keep their undefeated record in-tact and Dallas wanted to tell the world that their wins were not a fluke. Philadelphia wanted to assert their dominance early on, which was the tale of the first half. Philly scored the first touchdown of the game with a five-yard touchdown by Miles Sanders. Right after the Eagles scored their first touchdown, their defense picked off Cooper Rush, which set up a Jalen Hurts to AJ Brown 15-yard touchdown pass to extend their lead to two a two-possession lead mid-way through the second quarter. Philadelphia finished the half in complete control, rushing for 73 yards and had a 20-3 lead.
The second half for the Eagles in the last five games have been very conservative and hard to watch if you are an Eagles' fan. They have let leads slip, which was the same concern in this game. Philadelphia allowed the Cowboys to score 17 unanswered points to make the game very close in the fourth quarter. While Eagles' fans held their breaths, once again, the Eagles scored a touchdown, and their defense came through late to intercept Rush to put the game on ice.
Hurts finished with 155 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 29 rushing yards.
