Cowboys Vs. Eagles Score: Philadelphia Ground Game Off To A Fast Start, Lead 14-0

The Dallas Cowboys came in with a strong run defense but they are getting gashed early by the Philadelphia Eagles who have jumped out to a 14-0 lead. The Eagles have 104 yards rushing on just nine attempts in its first two possessions. 

The Eagles marched 84 yards on eight plays to open the scoring with a Jeremy Maclin 12 yard touchdown catch from Michael Vick. After getting a stop, the Eagles extended their lead with a 90 yard drive that culminated in a two yard run from Lasean Mccoy for the touchdown. McCoy has 78 yards on the Eagles' first two drives. 

Tony Romo has completed both of his passes and DeMarco Murray has four yards on one carry. The big story for Dallas in the early going is trying to find a way to slow down the Eagles.
