Recap: Eagles suffer very disheartening loss to Cowboys, fall to 3-4 on the year
20 October 2019 Uncategorized
Carrie Underwood sings, “Ive been waiting all day for Sunday night,” and for the Philadelphia Eagles, that did not seem the case.
The Eagles just were embarrassed by the Dallas Cowboys who went on to beat them 37-10. Which became their biggest win against the team since 1998.
Another terrible start to the game saw the Eagles fall behind 14-0 in a blink of an eye. Two fumbles on their own half of the field killed the Eagles early and from that point, they were never in the game.
The Eagles lone touchdown came from a nice 28 yard touchdown pass from Carson Wentz to tight end Dallas Goedert. Wentz did all he could today 191 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
What really hit the Eagles hard was their lack of offense. Dallas out-gained then 402 yards to 283 yards. The Eagles couldn’t get the Cowboys offense off the field and the Eagles offense couldn’t stay on it.
Defensively for the Eagles, it just wasn’t good enough. Dallas converted 8-14 third downs and many of those plays were third and long. No pressure up front gave quarterback Dak Prescott all day to throw and the Cowboys ran the ball with ease.
All around, it was another very disappointing outing by an Eagles team which seemed unprepared and not as enthusiastic about the rivalry as they make it seem they are. At points it was painful to watch tonight.
They need to get their act together, they have two winnable games coming up. However, looking to the next one, it’s an away trip to Buffalo to take on the Bills. This season, they need a statement win and now more than ever, a big road win will help boost them with their bye week looming.
