We’re live in Dallas, where the Cowboys are hosting the Eagles, aiming to extend their impressive 14-game home winning streak. The big question on everyone’s mind: Can the Birds put a dent in that streak?
Let’s dive into the action:
First Quarter: The Cowboys wasted no time, striking gold on their opening drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott to CeeDee Lamb. A bit of drama ensued with a flag on the play, but the refs waved off any offensive holding. (Cowboys 7 – Eagles 0)
The Eagles, driving towards the red zone, hit a speed bump when Jalen Hurts fumbled on a quarterback draw. Donovan Wilson forced the turnover, marking Hurts’ fifth fumble of the season.
Rookie sensation Brandon Aubrey showcased his skills with a flawless 60-yard field goal, giving the Cowboys a two-score lead. (Cowboys 10 – Eagles 0)
Second Quarter: Hold onto your hats! The Eagles pulled off a fake punt magic trick, with Braden Mann connecting with Olamide Zaccheaus for a 28-yard gain.
Jake Elliott capitalized on the momentum, nailing a 52-yard field goal just inside the right post. The fake punt paid off, putting the Birds on the scoreboard. (Cowboys 10 – Eagles 3)
But the Cowboys weren’t slowing down. Rico Dowdle managed to barely cross the goal line for a one-yard score. It was initially ruled short, but a review awarded the Cowboys the touchdown. (Cowboys 17 – Eagles 3)
Elliott worked his magic again with a 44-yard field goal, thanks in part to a Micah Parsons sack that pushed the Eagles back. (Cowboys 17 – Eagles 6)
The Cowboys then stretched their lead with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Michael Gallup. Another flag was thrown, but the refs decided there was no pass interference. (Cowboys 24 – Eagles 6)
Third Quarter: In unfortunate news for the Eagles, safety Reed Blankenship is sidelined with a concussion after leaving the game early.
