Eagles vs. Cowboys

The Philadelphia Eagles suffered their second consecutive defeat, this time on the road against the Dallas Cowboys with a final score of 33-13. The Eagles struggled to score three goals as Dallas dominated the first half, scoring on their opening four possessions to take a 24-6 lead. Although Jalen Carter gave hope for the Eagles by scoring with the help of Dack Prescott’s goal in the third quarter, he could not score in the end.

The game resulted in a tie for both Philadelphia and Dallas, with the two teams now holding a 10–3 record, sharing the top spot in the NFC East. The race for the conference’s top seed and first-round buy-bye in the playoffs has intensified, including in San Francisco, leading to a three-way stalemate.
