Eagles vs. Cowboys score: Philadelphia stops Dallas comeback to remain undefeated

PHILADELPHIA — The Dallas Cowboys made things more interesting than they deserved, but the Philadelphia Eagles finally held their ground on Sunday night, improving their record to 6-0 by beating their division rivals 26-17.

The Eagles used a monstrous second quarter to carve their way to victory, taking 20 of their points in that period. Philadelphia intercepted Cooper Rush three times on the night and kept him at 18 of 38, passing 181 yards and one score next to the trio of picks.

Dallas teased his way back into the game in the third quarter and early in the fourth behind a strong dose of run-game and play-action passing, but a 13-play, 75-yard Eagles touchdown drive that cost 7:37 of the clock ended up putting away quite a lot of things. If it didn’t, Rush’s third interception – which came on the next disc – certainly did.

Jalen Hurts didn’t get much through the air (15 of 25 for 155 yards), but he did a good job neutralizing the pass rush with his legs and the threat of him taking off led to several quality runs by the running backs, in the particularly Miles Sanders. He also found both AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith for touchdowns on Nick Sirianni’s well-crafted plays.

Philadelphia was the only one to retain first place in the NFC East with the win, while the loss dropped Dallas to 4-2 and to third place behind the Giants.
