Eagles Move to Top in NFC East
The Dallas Cowboys couldn't enjoy their Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, but they certainly had the stuffing knocked out of them by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Mark Sanchez threw for a touchdown and ran for another, both in the first quarter of the Eagles' 33-10 rout of the Cowboys near Dallas. Sanchez capped Philadelphia's first series with a two-yard scoring run and later threw a 27-yard pass to Jordan Matthews to make it 14-0 later in the period. He was 20 of 29 for 217 yards and no interceptions.
LeSean McCoy also ripped through the Dallas defense with 159 yards on 25 carries, including a 38-yard TD run in the third quarter. The Eagles wound up with 256 rushing yards while holding the Cowboys to just 267 total yards.
Tony Romo was held in check, throwing for just 199 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.
The 9-3 Eagles now lead the NFC East by one game over the Cowboys.
