Well, (most of that) was fun!
The Eagles defeated the Cowboys, 28-23! The last five minutes were hectic (I’m actually sweating) but now we can go into the BYE week at 8-1 and at peace (whew!).
After trailing 17-14 at halftime, the Eagles kicked things into gear taking control in the third quarter. The Eagles scored 14 unanswered points coming out of the half.
Jalen Hurts had us all a little scared when he limped off the field right before the half but he’s sooooo tough and was able to finish the game 17/23 for 243 total yards with 3 TDs and 0 INTs.
Dak Prescott went 29/44 for 389 totals yards with 3 TDs and was sacked 5 times.
As expected, CeeDee Lamb did some damage finishing with 11 catches for 192 yards but it wasn’t enough.
A.J. Brown had 66 yards on seven catches and a touchdown and is the fastest Eagles player to reach 1,000 yards in a season (9 games).
D’Andre Swift led the Birds in rushing with 43 yards on 18 carries.
I wanted to praise offensive coordination Brian Johnson for calling one of his best games of the season but towards the end of the game I have no idea what he was thinking.
