Cowboys Vs. Eagles Score: Vick, Maclin Hook Up For Touchdown, Eagles Lead 14-0

Rob Ryan's defense simply isn't working against Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles. Vick led the Eagles on a six play, 87 yard drive to end the first half, culminating with a five yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. Vick's second touchdown pass of the day has given the Eagles a 14-0 lead.

Vick has had his way with Dallas' defense in the first half, completing 13-of-20 passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns. LeSean McCoy leads the Eagles in rushing, with 33 yards on eight carries.

Both of Philadelphia's scoring drives so far have been at least 80 yards, with the Eagles needing just eight plays for an 80 yard touchdown drive on the game's opening possession.

Luckily for Cowboys fans, this game is meaningless as it pertains to the playoff picture. The Eagles were eliminated from playoff contention earlier on Saturday after the Giants defeated the Jets. Next week's Week 17 showdown between the Giants and Cowboys will decide the NFC East.
