Eagles-Cowboys Final Score: 10 things learned from Philadelphia's huge loss to Dallas - BGN
Here's what we learned from the Philadelphia Eagles' loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Barf - Iggles Blitz
The Eagles came up small in a big game, losing to Dallas 38-27. Frustrating game. It was great to see the team battle back from being down 21-0 and actually take the lead. Unfortunately they had no answer for Dez Bryant and the Eagles turnover problem once again proved very costly.

What the Loss Means For the Eagles - Birds 24/7
The Eagles' best chance of getting in is by winning the division. The Cowboys host the Colts next Sunday before finishing up in Washington. If they drop one of those games and the Eagles win out, the Eagles will claim the NFC East with a better division record. It will be difficult for the Eagles to get in as a Wild Card. Arizona, Seattle and Green Bay hold the tiebreaker over the Eagles since they beat them head-to-head, and Detroit would have the edge because of a superior conference record. Arizona clinched a playoff berth this weekend. Either Green Bay, Detroit or Seattle,  then, would have to lose out and the Eagles would have to win out in order for Philly to get in.

Eagles fall to Cowboys; playoff chances shrink - Inquirer
Time is running out on Chip Kelly's second season, and the Eagles will now need help to reach the playoffs. After the Eagles dominated the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving, the Cowboys avenged the loss on Sunday night with a 38-27 win at Lincoln Financial Field to take control of the NFC East.

Kelly: Eagles built themselves 'too big of a hole' - CSN Philly
"Obviously you can’t put yourself behind 21-0 against a good football team and then expect you can come back and win the game," Chip Kelly said. "We put ourselves in too big a hole to start with."

Kickoff Gaffe Hurts Eagles Early -
Josh Huff had never seen a play like that. An opening kickoff from Dallas' Dan Bailey fluttered in the air at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday night and landed between upback Brad Smith and Huff, the deep man, at the Philadelphia 15-yard line. And the trouble was on.
