    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.


    MVPs:

    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
