Eagles embarrass Dallas Cowboys 37-9 on Jerry Jones’ big night

ARLINGTON, Texas — Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz threw two touchdowns as the Philadelphia Eagles dismantled the Dallas Cowboys 37-9 Sunday night at AT&T Stadium.

The 28-point loss, the largest in AT&T Stadium history, was on the night Cowboys owner, president, and general manger Jerry Jones received his Pro Football Hall of Fame ring at halftime.

Wentz completed 14-of-27 for 168 yards. His counterpart, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, finished with 18-for-31 for 145 yards and three interceptions along with a lost fumble that was returned for a touchdown.

Dallas led 9-7 at halftime against the Eagles, but Philadelphia responded with 30 unanswered points.

The Cowboys were without running back Ezekiel Elliott for the second straight game as he serves his six-game suspension. Backup running back Alfred Morris gained 91 yards on 17 carries along with Rod Smith’s eight carries for 11 yards.

Jay Ajayi led Philadelphia’s ground game with seven carries for 91 yards. LeGarrette Blount added 57 yards on 13 carries while Corey Clement rushed for a touchdown and 50 yards on six attempts.

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant had a game-high eight catches for 63 yards. Eagles wideout Alshon Jeffery had a game-high 67 yards and a touchdown on four receptions.

Philadelphia defensive end Derek Barnett dropped Prescott twice while defensive end Brandon Graham and defensive tackle Tim Jernigan each had a sack. The Dallas defense did not drop Wentz the entire evening.

Safety Rodney McLeod, cornerback Ronald Darby, and safety Malcolm Jenkins each had an interception while linebacker Nigel Bradham returned a fumble for a touchdown.

The Eagles lost kicker Jake Elliott to a head injury in the first half, forcing the Eagles to go for it on fourth downs and point-after attempts, where they were 1-of-1 and 3-of-4 respectively.

Philadelphia goes home to host the Chicago Bears on Nov. 26 while the Cowboys stay in Arlington to host to Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving.
