Cowboys Vs. Eagles: Philadelphia Leads Dallas 14-0 After First Half

It has been all Eagles so far in Dallas as the Cowboys trail Philadelphia 14-0 in their Week 16 matchup. The Eagles were eliminated from the playoffs by the Giants, who beat the Jets earlier in New York, so they have been taking their frustrations out on the Cowboys.

The Eagles struck first with a touchdown on their opening possession. Michael Vick found tight end Brent Celek in the end zone to cap off an eight play, 80-yard drive to give Philadelphia a 7-0 lead.

After throwing only two passes, Tony Romo had to leave the field with an injured throwing hand after a hit by NFL sack leader Jason Babin. Stephen McGee came into replace Romo and has completed 11 of 14 passes for 91 yards but the Cowboys haven't been able to do anything on offense so far without their starting quarterback.

Both teams went scoreless through the rest of the first quarter and most of the second. With just 10 seconds left Vick found Jeremy Maclin in the end zone for his second touchdown pass of the night to give the Eagles a 14-0 lead.

McGee will have an uphill battle in the second half to get the Cowboys out of a 14-point hole, but, luckily for them, they can still lose this game and play for a playoff spot next week against the Giants in New York.
