Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Dallas Cowboys scored touchdowns in
all three phases of the game in the second half, as they came from behind to
upend the reeling Philadelphia Eagles, 38-23, at Lincoln Financial Field.
With the New York Giants losing earlier Sunday, the winner of this NFC East
tilt would pull within one game in the loss column of the division leaders
despite being under .500.
The Cowboys (4-5), coming off two straight losses, took advantage of the
opportunity with a memorable 2:35 stretch, starting with Dez Bryant's
highlight-reel catch in the end zone on the last play of the third quarter.
Dwayne Harris then returned a punt 78 yards for a go-ahead score 1:25 into the
fourth, and Brandon Carr picked off a Nick Foles pass and took it 47 yards for
a TD a little later.
Foles made his NFL debut after Michael Vick left in the second quarter with a
concussion. The rookie threw a touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin and completed
22-of-32 passes for 219 yards, but also lost a fumble that was recovered by
Dallas in the end zone.
Tony Romo was an efficient 19-of-26 through the air for 209 yards and two
scores, while Felix Jones amassed 93 yards from scrimmage and caught a
touchdown pass in the victory.
The Eagles (3-6) have lost five straight games for the first time in Andy
Reid's 14-year tenure as head coach.
