Cowboys Vs. Eagles Final Score: Dallas Disappoints In 34-7 Loss

The Cowboys got on the scoreboard in the fourth quarter but did little to erase the overall domination that the Eagles enjoyed in this game. Dallas' lone score came on a 70 yard pass from Tony Romo to Laurent Robinson but this game was long in the books before the wide receiver stepped into the end zone. 

Dallas came into this game with the best run defense in the NFL allowing just under 70 yards per game. The Eagles eclipsed that mark in the first quarter as they went on to pile up 239 yards on the ground and 495 yards of total offense. Philadelphia held the ball for over 42 minutes in the game while Romo and Dallas was left with just 17:51 in time of possession. 

LeSean McCoy finished with 185 yards rushing on 30 carries including two touchdowns. Michael Vick had an efficient game completing 21 of 28 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns. 

For Dallas, Romo completed 18 of 35 passes for 203 yards with a touchdown and an interception although most of that yardage came in the fourth quarter when this game was already decided. DeMarco Murray ran the ball eight times for 74 yards as Dallas was forced to abandon the run after falling behind early. DeMarcus Ware had a big game defensively with 11 tackles and four sacks.
