    Divisional games are always tough to predict. Especially when it comes to the Eagles and Cowboys. anything goes and it seemed like the Eagles were getting ready to deliver an upset early on. After a scoreless 1st qtr, with both defenses coming up with turnovers, Philly struck first as Gabbert engineered a scoring drive that ended with a McShady TD run. Dallas came back and looked to be in position to tie but, the offense stalled and a FG made it 7-3, Eagles with under 2:00 to go in the half.

    Then, it happened. L. McCoy went off right tackle and looked to be heading towards paydirt when he was met, hard, by B. Church at the 49yd line and promptly coughed up the ball. S. Lee made the recovery and Dallas was back on offense. 4 plays later, D. Harvin found D. Harris for the TD, making it 10-7 Dallas. On their very next offensive snap, Gabbert tried to hit TE B. Celek over the middle of the field but Church again was in position to make a play and picked off the pass. 6 plays later Harvin would connect with Dez for the score and a 17-7 Cowboy lead at the half.

    The 2nd half had the Dallas defense, namely CB B. Carr with 2 INTs, keeping the Eagle offense in check and leading to a 31-15 Cowboy win on the road.

    Next week the Cowboys return home to host the division leading Giants while the Eagles will host the Lions.
