1. Cowboys, Eagles reel off impressive victories
The NFC East race was shaping up to be the most competitive in all the NFL, and on Sunday we got a glimpse of which two teams have solidified themselves as the favorites.
The defending division champions blanked the New York Giants at home, 27-0, marking the team’s first shutout in 18 years. LeSean McCoy, who has been quieted all season long, mustered up a 149-yard night. The Eagles’ defense, which has been quite bendable all season, held a red-hot Eli Manning to 13 completions for 151 yards and the Giants’ run game to 85 yards.
The win was easily the most impressive for Philadelphia, who now sit at 5-1. The issue remains Nick Foles, who despite throwing two touchdown passes was intercepted twice and now leads the league in turnovers (10).
Dallas, too, pulled off one of the biggest victories of the day, marching up to Seattle to hand the defending Super Bowl champions a 30-23 loss. DeMarco Murray continued his MVP-esque campaign with a sixth straight 100-yard rushing effort against the vaunted Seahawks defense, which had not allowed a running back to top 38 yards entering Sunday, while Tony Romo passed for 250 yards and two touchdowns. The Cowboys’ defense played more like what we would have expected from Seattle’s, limiting the Seahawks to 206 total yards of offense and three points in the fourth quarter.
The Cowboys are 5-1 for the first time since 2007 after out-Seahawking the Seahawks. You have to begin to credit Jerry Jones for building a playoff team from the inside out and adopting a style of play conducive to such success.
