    The 1-9 Eagles traveled to the 9-1 Cowboys this week. Everyone was expecting a blow out game, but this is the NFC East, anything can happen. It was a defensive battle in the first half. The score at the end of the half was 13-13. In the second half the doors blew off for both teams. The Eagles and Cowboys traded scores a few times. With under 2 minutes to go in the game, the Eagles took the lead 37-34. The Eagles kicked off and the Cowboys promptly took the kick return back for a TD. But not so fast. There was a flag on the play. The return was called back from a block in the back. Now the Cowboys had to drive the length of the field if they wanted to come out of this game with a win. The Cowboys, hoping for a few yards, throw a screen pass. Christine Michael breaks a couple tackles and rumbles down into the redzone. The Cowboys punch it in to make the score 41-37 with about 40 seconds left on the clock. Try as they might, the Eagles couldn't complete a comeback and fall to the Cowboys.

    Welcome to week 12! The Jets made the short trip to Philadelphia this week to take on a team who is looking to make some noise in the NFC. This week was all about the Eagles defense. They forced the Jets to turn the ball over 6 times. The Eagles kicked off to the Jets to start the game. On the first drive, the Eagles forced a 3rd and medium, Jets QB Johnathon Griffin rolled back and had the ball stripped by DE Fletcher Cox. Connor Barwin picked up the fumble and returned it for a TD. The Jets offense just couldn't catch a break as the Eagles stayed hot on both sides for the ball. Eagles WR Duron Carter hauled in 2 TD's in the first half. The score at the end of the half was the Eagles 27, Jets 10. The Jets struggles continued in the second half. The Jets would not score again in this game. Eagles QB Russell Morgan threw his 3rd TD halfway through the 3rd. The next drive, MLB Wayman Lucas get's his second INT and this one is returned for a TD. The next drive, Eagles coach Chip Kelly brought in his backups to run out the clock and try to avoid injuries. Final score Eagles 44, Jets 10.
