That's good news for the Eagles, since they play the New Orleans Saints this week. Dallas' relatively stagnant offense came alive, scoring the second most points of the season, as they beat Philadelphia 27-20 for their first road victory of the season. That's the kind of game we know he can play.
Hurns has settled in to a rotational role behind both Gallup and Cooper. He piled up 151 yards on just 19 carries and also snagged 6 passes for 36 yards and another score on the evening.
Although the Cowboys front seven kept the Eagles' running backs in check, Carson Wentz was able to move the ball up and down the field easily, racking up 360 passing yards. Ertz lateraled to Golden Tate but he was tackled for no gain to end it. In the fourth quarter, with the Cowboys driving for the winning touchdown, Hurns converted a third and long beating Rasul Douglas on a slant. Prescott benefited from a strong running game and made a few clutch throws that kept the chains moving.
The one thing the Cowboys didn't improve on from their loss to the Titans before this week was getting Cole Beasley involved, as he was targeted just five times. The Cowboys will hope to get back to a.500 win percentage with a win against the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday at one o'clock in Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Desperation seemed to be palpable as the Cowboys took the field in Philadelphia with their season at a crossroads. Just how much trust the Cowboys deserve with ensuing decisions because of this is a slippery slope. The Cowboys GM even backtracked to dispute a report that Linehan's job was on the line through the Cowboys bye week.
"Fourth quarter starts it's 13-13, so now everything up to that point really is irrelevant and now we've got to go play, we've got to win the last 15 minutes", Garrett said.
