Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys Recap DEC 27TH 2020

Quarterback Dak Prescott passed for one touchdown, rushed for another and the host Dallas Cowboys handily defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 37-10 on Sunday.

Prescott was 21 of 27 for 239 yards as the Cowboys snapped a three-game losing streak heading into the team's bye next week.

Ezekiel Elliott also rushed for a score and the Cowboys improved to 4-3. Elliott ran 22 times for 111 yards.

The Eagles were hampered by four costly turnovers, including two fumbles and an interception by quarterback Carson Wentz.

Wentz was 16 of 26 for 191 yards and the Eagles dropped their second in a row to fall below .500 at 3-4.

In a wild first half, the Cowboys quickly took a 14-0 lead as they capitalized on a pair of Eagles fumbles.

Following the first fumble by Dallas Goedert, the Cowboys struck when Tavon Austin received a pitch from Prescott and ran 20 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead.

On Philadelphia's next possession, Wentz had the ball stripped by DeMarcus Lawrence. Then with 9:08 left in the first quarter, Elliott plunged in from the 1 for a 14-point lead.

The Eagles did respond as Goedert made up for his early turnover and hauled in a 28-yard pass from Wentz to close within 14-7.

But the Cowboys went back ahead by two touchdowns when Prescott rolled out and found a wide open Blake Jarwin for a 21-7 advantage with 6:40 remaining in the second.

Dallas tacked on six more points as Brett Maher drilled field goals from 26 and 63 yards for a 27-7 lead at halftime. Maher's 63-yarder was one yard shy of tying an NFL record as it sailed through at the halftime buzzer.

Philadelphia put together an impressive third quarter drive which eventually stalled. Jake Elliott's 38-yard field goal with 4:49 left then closed the gap to 27-10.

Maher's third field goal, this time from 29 yards, extended Dallas' lead to 30-10 early in the fourth. Prescott's 8-yard scamper then gave the Cowboys the final margin of 37-10.

A lot has changed in the past two months, since Week 8, when the starting quarterbacks for the Philadelphia-Dallas game were rookie Ben DiNucci for the Cowboys and veteran Carson Wentz for the Eagles.

For this Sunday's NFC East rematch in Arlington, Texas, they have sort of flip-flopped behind center, with Philly starting a rookie and Dallas starting a veteran.

Two native Texans will be under center as 22-year-old rookie Jalen Hurts leads Philadelphia (4-9-1) against 33-year-old veteran Andy Dalton and Dallas (5-9).

With the Washington Football Team sitting at 6-8, both teams need to win and get some help to keep their faint playoff pulse going.

Hurts, a second-round pick, is 1-1 as the starter since replacing Wentz. After an upset win against New Orleans in Week 14, the Eagles fell 33-26 last Sunday at Arizona despite 338 yards and four touchdowns from Hurts (three passes and a 7-yard run).

"He led the team. He played mentally and physically tough," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. "He's an extremely hard worker. He's diligent. He wants to improve. He took the loss (Sunday) very personally. He wants to get back out there and keep going."

Since taking over for Wentz in the second half at Green Bay in Week 13, Hurts has generated 812 yards of total offense (614 passing, 198 rushing) with six TDs. Most important, perhaps, is that he has turned the ball over only twice in those 10 quarters. Wentz hasn't played since Dec. 6 and his 15 interceptions are still two more than any other player.

"I think I hate losing more than I love to win," Hurts said after coming up short against the Cardinals. "It's not a great feeling. It's a learning lesson. Everything can be better moving forward."

The Cowboys have certainly played better since Dalton returned to the lineup in Week 11, winning back-to-back games and three of their last five. He has completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 1,097 yards with 10 scores and three picks during that five-game stretch. He has not been intercepted since Dec. 8.

Signed to a one-year deal to back up Dak Prescott, Dalton's stay in Dallas could be extended beyond this season based on his recent play.

"He's doing a great job, and certainly we'd love to have him back," Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said on 105.3 FM The Fan after Sunday's 41-33 win against the 49ers.

"We'll just have to address that at the end of the year in terms of what goals, what he's wanting to do, what his opportunities are, but he's a guy who's from this area, went to school over at TCU, and I know he makes his home right here in Dallas. ... So, I'm sure we'll have every opportunity to talk through what the business is going to be with Andy, but he's just a class act."

After missing his first-ever regular season game due to injury last week, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (calf) did resistance training at practice Wednesday and could be back in the lineup Sunday.

Tony Pollard scored twice and gained 132 yards from scrimmage (69 yards on a 5.8-yard rushing average with two TDs), against the Niners in Elliott's absence.

Five players missed Wednesday's workouts for the Cowboys: linebacker Leighton Vander Esch (ankle), defensive tackle Antwaun Woods (ankle), safety Xavier Woods (ribs), cornerback Rashard Robinson (knee) and tight end Blake Bell (illness). Receiver Michael Gallup (hip), linebackers Jaylon Smith (wrist) and Sean Lee (knee) and corners Chidboe Awuzie (ankle/knee) and Trevon Diggs (foot) were full participants.

Cornerback Darius Slay was a full participant in Wednesday's practice for Philly after missing the Arizona game with a concussion. Rookie wideout Jalen Reagor (ankle) and linebacker Duke Riley (bicep) were both limited, while Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (neck, rest), defensive end Josh Sweat (wrist), cornerback Kevon Seymour (knee), tight end Richard Rodgers (ankle) and punter Cameron Johnston (concussion) did not participate.

The Eagles are looking to sweep the season series for the first time since 2011. In the first meeting, Philadelphia sacked DiNucci four times and the 2020 seventh-rounder lost two fumbles.
