On the same week that head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Dak Prescott were under fire after a 3-5 start to the year, owner Jerry Jones was seen celebrating in the locker room after showing support for both of his aforementioned employees. Dallas seemed to be playing with some confidence on this night, faking a punt on 4th-and-2, which led to one of two red zone field goals in the first half.
Prescott threw for 270 yards and found Elliott for a touchdown in the third quarter, while also running in for the first touchdown of the day in the second. The rivalry proved to still be plenty heated following a pregame scuffle during warmups, but this chapter of the rivalry was mostly blue and white.
Carson Wentz had 360 yards through the air and two touchdowns, both of which went to Zach Ertz who had 11 catches for 99 yards. The Eagles also fell a game under .500 at Lincoln Financial Field, where fans got a coffin in before the game, signaling their team burying the Cowboys, which they failed to do. They can thank Elliott, who ran for 151 yards on the night, while Amari Cooper had six catches for 75 yards in his second game with his new team.
Dallas will have two tough tests coming up to get back on track, as they will visit the Atlanta Falcons before battling the first-place Redskins. Meanwhile, the Eagles move on to a tough matchup in New Orleans against the Saints.
