Bradford lifts Eagles to OT win - Inquirer
The play call came into the headset in Sam Bradford's helmet from Chip Kelly, and the quarterback turned to wide receiver Jordan Matthews. "Hey, I'm coming to you," Bradford said. "Win right here." The message came before the ninth play of overtime on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, and there would not be a 10th. Bradford found Matthews, just as the play was designed, and Matthews ran 41 yards through the Cowboys defense for the Eagles' 33-27 victory. "He trusted me, he gave the chance to catch and run, so it was game over," Matthews said.

Clutch - Iggles Blitz
There are a lot of heroes in this game, but none bigger than the Eagles OL. Lane Johnson played LT for the first time in his NFL career and had a good game. Dennis Kelly made his first start at RT since 2012 and played far better than any of us expected. The Eagles ran for 172 yards. Sam Bradford threw for 295 yards and was only sacked once. He got hit a few times, but had plenty of time to throw.

Four Downs: Bradford Steps Up In Win - Birds 24/7
112 - That's how many receiving yards Cole Beasley tallied tonight, as he recorded nine catches on 11 targets. He also scored two receiving touchdowns and consistently hurt the Eagles — but mostly Malcolm Jenkins — on double-moves. On both of his touchdowns, Beasley ran a few yards to the outside, then quickly turned and cut back inside. Jenkins struggled against the quick receiver in the slot, but the second touchdown appeared to involve a miscommunication. Jenkins maintained outside leverage even as Beasley cut inside, so he was likely expecting help from a safety or inside linebacker.

Philly radio station raises $19K for women's shelter in Dallas following release of Greg Hardy photos -
If there is any good to come from the incident involving Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy and then-girlfriend Nicole Holder from May 2014, this is it.  And it is coming from, of all places, the Cowboys' rival city -- Philadelphia.  After the release of 48 photos from the incident involving Hardy and Holder were released on Friday, Sports Radio 94 WIP, the top sports station in the city, started a GoFundMe account for the Genesis Women's Shelter in Dallas. As of Sunday morning, the station had raised just over $19,000, far surpassing its goal of $3,000.

A Win That Means So Much For Eagles -
Chip Kelly is right when he says that each week carries the same weight in an NFL season and that each win means the same and that next Sunday against Miami represents the same challenge as a prime-time, all-timer against arch-rival Dallas on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium. But still, let's let our guard down for just a moment here ...

DeMarco Murray's return to Dallas turns into sweet redemption - CSN Philly
The Eagles beat the Cowboys, 33-27, and if you want a story of redemption, here it is. In the first Eagles-Cowboys game, Murray was 13 for 2 rushing. Sunday, he battered his former team up and down its own field. “I saw the frustration after the first game,” center Jason Kelce said. “Saw the frustration during the first game. I think regardless of what he says to the media, there are some relationships he has on this team, he made a big move during the offseason and I imagine this kind of meant a little bit more than a typical game for him.”

The Dallas Cowboys need to cut Greg Hardy, and yet they aren't doing it - SB Nation
Nobody is forcing the Dallas Cowboys to employ Greg Hardy. They're choosing to do it, in spite of the horrific things we know he's done.
