The Philadelphia Eagles laid claim to the title best team in the NFC East and there's nothing the Cowboys could do about it Sunday night at AT&T Stadium.

Luke Elliott left the game after missing a 34-yard field goal late in the first quarter.


Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham had six tackles and put the game away with a 37-yard fumble return for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

Doug Pedersen's Eagles crushed those hopes in the second half, rolling to a 37-9 win despite losing starting kicker Jake Elliott in the first half due to a head injury. The score came a play after the running back made a juggling sideline catch for 22 yards. It was Darby providing tight coverage on a pass that bounced off Cowboys' wide receiver Terrance Williams and into the arms of Eagles cornerback Rodney McLeod for an interception, and Darby seemed to be around the football on every other meaningful throw into the secondary.


The Eagles offense rushed for 215 yards on 33 carries and saw four rushers in double-figures led by Jay Ajayi with 91.

It's always interesting when the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys renew acquaintances, especially when there is so much on the line. He covered Dez Bryant most of the game.


Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz completed 14 of 27 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns.
