Cowboys beat playoff-bound Eagles 6-0

  • All-22 Eagles' run game needs help from Nick Foles better execution

Lawrence had an incredible season in the final year of his rookie contract and now he'll be angling for a massive deal in the offseason, be it from Dallas or elsewhere. And Dallas at least finished on a high note, defeating its division rivals by the paltry score of 6-0.

Though the Eagles already own home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, they had a chance at their first 14-win regular season in franchise history.

The teams were 0 for 12 on third and fourth down before the Cowboys converted on third down late in the second quarter. Then Donnie Jones drilled a ideal punt that went out inside the Cowboys' 1-yard line. He had a passer rating of 9.3. That includes Ezekiel Elliott who is 120 yards shy of 1,000 for the season. Sudfeld then ran 22 yards on another third down and the crowd roared.

But this game was really about the Dallas defense, which limited the Eagles to only 219 yards of offense and just 2 of 11 conversions on third down.

Key stat Foles was 4 for 11 for 39 yards and an interception.

With the offenses struggling, a case could be made that the stars of the game were actually the punters. He's 23-of-49 (47 percent) for 202 yards with a TD and two interceptions since his four-touchdown outing against the New York Giants in Week 15.

The offense's sluggish play might frustrate fans who clamored for a better performance after the team put up a season-low 216 yards in a win over the Raiders on Christmas. It was also the first time any game in the National Football League was scoreless at the break since the 2011 campaign.


The teams remained scoreless through three quarters and the stadium began to empty out quickly.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Brice Butler connected for the game's only touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The only thing left at that point was whether or not the defense could pitch the shutout. Foles was hurried and threw an incomplete pass on fourth down.

With that, the Cowboys were then able to run 5:23 off the clock, Bailey getting one more try at a field goal with 16 seconds left.

The Eagles replaced him with backup Nate Sudfeld on the first drive of the second quarter, signaling an end to Foles' day, barring an injury to Sudfeld. Instead, they wound up 13-3 and were shut out for the first time since the regular-season finale on January 3, 2010, a 24-0 loss at Dallas.

The last time Beasley caught a touchdown pass was during a win over the Kansas City Chiefs back on November 5, when he snared two balls in the end zone.
