Dallas bounced back this week with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The final score was 37-10 the Cowboys on top.  Dallas previously lost three straight, but now they are over .500 again at 4-3.

This was a very anticipated game as two of the league’s best NFC teams faced off this week. The Cowboys came ready to play as they were led by Elliott who had 111 yards on the ground and 36 yards receiving. Cooper also had 106 yards receiving for the Cowboys.

The Eagles could not get their offense going. Carson Wentz only had 191 yards passing with an interception and a touchdown. Wentz also fumbled twice and lost both of them. Leading the team, Jordan Howard had 50 yards rushing.

Defense was the difference in this game. The Eagles couldn’t stop Zeke and the cowboys running game. The Eagles did have one turnover, an interception by Jalen Mills.

The Cowboys defense was the game changer on Sunday. They had one interception and two fumbles recovered. The team with more turnovers has a good chance to win any football game, and Dallas beat Philadelphia 3-1 in turnovers.

Although there was much anticipation, the game was nearly over at halftime! Dallas was up 27-7 going into halftime. In the second half, they just kept running the ball until the time expired and the final score was 37-10 with Dallas coming out on top.
