The Cowboys took underside ownership of the lead position in the NFC East in the wake of cruising by the Eagles on Sunday Night Football.
The Dallas Cowboys were having none of it.
In the wake of enduring three straight misfortunes following a 3–0 beginning to the season, they realized the weight was mounting. First it was a 12–10 misfortune to the Saints. At that point came the 34–24 beating against the Packers. Before a week ago’s over’s 24–22 destruction against the already winless Jets– – a misfortune Jerry Jones conceded felt like “a bloody nose”– – even an Eagles group falling off of its own inauspicious misfortune was sure about its odds of winning Sunday night’s divisional challenge.
“We’re going down to Dallas, and our guys are gonna be ready to play. And we’re gonna win that football game, and when we do, we’re in first place in the NFC East”.
Eagles mentor Doug Pederson
Dak Prescott and the Cowboys ensured that didn’t occur.
With a reasonable hostile methodology and a champion guarded appearing, Dallas assumed responsibility for the NFC East with a 37–10 Week 7 win over Philadelphia at home. Prescott completed the game 21-of-27 for 239 yards passing, one touchdown and one block attempt. Ezekiel Elliott included 111 yards and a score on 22 conveys, while Amari Cooper came up enormous in the accepting game with five gets for 106 yards on the night.
Here are some key takeaways important from the Cowboys’ enormous success – and the Eagles’ revolting exhibition – on Sunday.
Dallas isn’t dead … yet
Things are looking much more brilliant in Dallas.
Subsequent to going through weeks attempting to rediscover the offense that pushed them to an undefeated beginning to the season, the Cowboys at last discovered it on Sunday, jumping on early mix-ups by the Eagles to take a 14-0 lead. Indeed, even after the Eagles reacted to slice the shortage down the middle, the Cowboys addressed right back with two scoring drives of their own, helping them convey a noteworthy lead into halftime.
They never thought back after that. Their greatest playmakers every single got thing going. The hostile line gave Prescott a lot of time. And keeping in mind that the presentation doesn’t really eradicate the worries that appeared after their back to back misfortunes, their beatdown of the Eagles benefited feature signs. Which Cowboys’ offense we’ll get one week from now is still open to question.
For the present, at any rate, they’ve halted the dying.
The Eagles’ safeguard is authoritatively broken
This wasn’t absolutely startling. Through about a month and a half of the period, Philadelphia’s 29th-positioned leave barrier had given behind 280.2 yards per game. Any expectation of rescuing the unit’s inclusion misfortunes vanished when Kirk Cousins burnt the auxiliary a week ago.
What wasn’t normal?
The Eagles’ run safeguard going AWOL.
Positioned second in rival surging normal (3.3 yards per convey) entering the night, Philadelphia’s capacity to stop the run appeared to totally disappear on Sunday. Elliott had 65 yards on 13 conveys in a first a large portion of that saw the Cowboys scramble for 111 yards at the break. Dallas arrived at the midpoint of 6.8 yards per continue initially down in the initial two quarters, and the Cowboys constructed a 27–7 lead, the biggest halftime shortfall of Pederson’s profession.
The offense didn’t help them any (Carson Wentz went 16-of-26 for 191 yards and turned it more than multiple times) yet doubtlessly this protection should be better if the Eagles are to get any opportunity at making something happen. It’s up to Pederson to make sense of how.
Brett Maher leaves a mark on the world
He might be conflicting within 50 yards, however with regards to kicks outside of the marker, Brett Maher is cash.
On the last play of the main half on Sunday, Maher penetrated a 63-yarder to turn into the primary kicker in NFL history with three profession field objectives of at any rate 60 yards. The make was a Cowboys establishment record and only one short of tying the NFL’s longest field objective ever.
Maher made a 62-yarder against the Eagles last season and a 62-yarder a week ago against the Jets. They are currently 9-of-12 from 50 or more yards in their two seasons.
