Cowboys vs. Eagles: Brandon Carr gets first INT in Dallas uniform

Brandon Carr got his first ever pick-six and his first interception as a Cowboy during Dallas' win over the Eagles on Sunday.


There were some big moments for the Cowboys in their 38-23 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, especially in the fourth quarter. With the game close entering the final frame of the game, Dwayne Harris got his first ever punt return for the Cowboys and then Brandon Carr followed it up with his first ever interception for a touchdown.

The highly rated cornerback had picked up eight interceptions in his previous four years with the Kansas City Chiefs, but never crossed the end zone with any of them. Not only was his fourth quarter interception off an errant Nick Foles pass his first ever pick-six, it was his first ever INT in a Cowboys uniform.

After playing eight games this season without finding the ball in his hands, he was happy to find himself with a pick against the Eagles. Following the game, he spoke about finally getting that interception, saying, "It came at a big time in the game and glad it was me to make the play."

Dallas will face the Cleveland Browns next Sunday as they try and push back to .500 on the season.
