Prescott shines in prime time

The star of the game was Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who completed 27 of 36 passes for 351 yards and four touchdowns, with no interceptions. Prescott spread the ball around to eight different receivers, with CeeDee Lamb leading the way with nine catches for 143 yards and a touchdown. Prescott also ran for 23 yards and converted several key third downs with his legs.

Prescott’s performance was one of the best of his career, and it came at a crucial time for the Cowboys, who improved to 8-5 and matched the Eagles’ record atop the division. Prescott said he was motivated by the challenge of facing a tough opponent on the road.

“I love these games. I love the atmosphere. I love the pressure. I love the opportunity to go out there and show what we can do as a team,” Prescott said after the game.

Cowboys defense stifles Hurts and Eagles

The Cowboys defense also rose to the occasion, shutting down the Eagles offense that had been averaging 28.6 points per game. The Cowboys sacked Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts four times, intercepted him once, and forced him to fumble twice. Hurts finished with 178 passing yards and a touchdown, and 49 rushing yards and a touchdown, but most of his production came in garbage time.

The Cowboys defense also contained the Eagles running game, which had been the best in the league, averaging 160.1 yards per game. The Eagles managed only 89 rushing yards on 23 carries, with Miles Sanders leading the team with 36 yards on nine attempts.

The Cowboys defense was led by linebacker Micah Parsons, who had two sacks, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery. Parsons, who is a leading candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year, said he was happy with the team’s performance.

“We came out here with a chip on our shoulder. We knew this was a big game for us. We wanted to make a statement. We wanted to show that we are the best defense in the league,” Parsons said.

Eagles fall short in crucial game

The Eagles, who had won four of their last five games, were hoping to take a commanding lead in the NFC East with a win over the Cowboys. However, they were outplayed in every phase of the game, and never led or tied the score. The Eagles trailed 17-6 at halftime, and 30-6 in the fourth quarter, before scoring a late touchdown to make the final score more respectable.

The Eagles coach Nick Sirianni said he was disappointed with the team’s performance, and took the blame for the loss.

“We didn’t execute well enough. We didn’t coach well enough. We didn’t play well enough. We have to give credit to the Cowboys, they played a great game. But we have to look at ourselves and see what we can do better,” Sirianni said.

The Eagles will have a chance to bounce back next week, when they host the Washington Football Team, who are also 8-5 and tied for the NFC East lead. The Cowboys will face the New York Giants, who are 4-9 and at the bottom of the division.
