    Tony Romo and company came into this game knowing that they had to do 1 thing above all else, protect the football. Now-a-days, however; that is much easier said than done against this stingy Eagles defense. With a league high 37 interceptions coming into the game, it's no secret their key to success. Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers. Today would be no different story. The Eagles D would go on to pick Romo off 7 times in the ball game, bringing their season total to an astounding 44 INT's. Two of them however did go right back to the Cowboys, as returning Eagles defenders took a couple big shots which jarred the ball loose and Dallas was able to recover both times. Offensively, Michael Vick was nearly perfect throwing for 179 yards and 2 TD's. Both TD's went to TE Brent Celek, who until this game has had a relatively quiet 2012 campaign. The Eagles went on to win this NFC East match-up 24-10.

    The Eagles bring their current win streak to 5 games and remain 2 games ahead of the Giants for the division lead. They next head down to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers, who are also fighting for a playoff bid. Dallas will head to Cincinnatti to take on the Bengals.


    PHI - Defense, We'll chalk this up as an entire group effort. Six different people had interceptions, 2
    of them came from DB Chris Rucker who was picked up out of free agency in week 4.

    DAL - RB Demarco Murray, 16 Rushes, 94 Yards


    GG CaptMoe .... Glad we were able to move past that last fiasco like men. Great game, and I'll see you next season! Good luck in the offseason(s).
