3 things we saw as Eagles slammed Cowboys, move to 9-1

Dallas found the scoreboard first on a 48-yard field goal that was set up by a 61-yard kickoff return by Ryan Switzer. In his absense linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill looked pretty comfortable kicking off, but the Birds did their best to avoid field goal situations throughout the game.

The rookie out of Memphis went to the trainers table, and then exited the field, not long after missing a 34-yard field goal attempt wide right.

Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby had eight tackles and one interception with two passes defensed.

The Eagles offense rushed for 215 yards on 33 carries and saw four rushers in double-figures led by Jay Ajayi with 91. The score came a play after the running back made a juggling sideline catch for 22 yards.

The team's star power was reduced to Dez Bryant, who had a solid game with eighth grabs for 63 yards. The Eagles (9-1) rocked the Cowboys 37-9 behind 218 rushing yards and four Dak Prescott turnovers.

Corey Clement scored the first points of the second half on an 11-yard touchdown run with 10:56 remaining in the third to give Philadelphia a 13-9 lead, and he tacked on two more points by converting the two-point conversion. The first three Eagles' possessions resulted in TD drives of 75, 90, and 85 yards, all but breaking the Cowboys spirit in the third quarter.

Philadelphia will receive the ball to begin the second half.
