UPDATE [9:00 p.m.] – The Eagles won. It was a rollercoaster, especially during that last six or so minutes of the fourth quarter, but the Eagles won.
They beat Dallas 28-23 to improve to an NFL-best 8-1 with the bye week now arriving at no better time because man does the whole Delaware Valley need a cooldown after that.
Anyway, here's our postgame coverage...
• Final observations: Eagles 28, Cowboys 23 (Shamus Clancy)
• Future headlines: The Eagles are big time (Evan Macy)
The 7-1 Philadelphia Eagles will host the 5-2 Dallas Cowboys in a kind of important NFC East showdown in Philadelphia, with the opening kick scheduled for 4:25 p.m.
The Eagles will be without four players for this matchup, but they're still probably as healthy as they have been since September. The Cowboys will be without ballhawk cornerback Trevon Diggs, and they are banged up at LT, but they have otherwise had good injury luck so far this season. You can find the full Eagles-Cowboys injury report here.
As we noted in our five matchups to watch, the Cowboys capitalize on mistakes better than any team in the NFL, as they led the NFL in takeaways both in 2021 (34 takeaways), and 2022 (33 takeaways). This season, the Cowboys are on a similar pace again, as they have 13 takeaways so far, including four defensive touchdowns. The Eagles should strive to take care of the football in every matchup, but it is especially important against Dallas.
