It was pure dominance as the Eagles jumped back in the NFC East divisiional race with a rather “easy” 34-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys
In a total shocker, the Philadelphia Eagles took the “spurs” to the Dallas Cowboys in a dominating 34-7 win at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles marched down the field on their opening drive and never looked back as they improved to 3-4 and are now squarely in the mix of the NFC East race.
The Eagles now are 13-0 after a bye under coach Andy Reid and snapped a five-game home losing streak that dated to last season. The most impressive part for the Birds had to be their dominance of the statistical scoreboard. Philadelphia racked up 495 total yards and held the ball for 42:09 — Dallas only held the ball for a little less than 18 minutes. And most importantly zero turnovers.
After the game, Dallas owner Jerry Jones said in the lockerroom after the humbling loss, “We just got beat tonight in every facet of the game by a good football team”.
The stars of the game for the Eagles were QB Michael Vick, who threw two touchdown passes, DE Jason Babin (2 sacks), and of course emerging RB LeSean McCoy — a career-best 185 yards rushing and two TD’s in the big win.
After the game, Taking It to the House’s Lloyd Vance caught-up with Eagles TE Clay Harbor and DE Trent Cole to discuss the Birds rather “easy” win.
