The Eagles and Cowboys renew their storied NFC East rivalry tonight in Dallas. The Cowboys ’ rush defense is in the middle of the pack, allowing 93.8 yards per game to opposing teams. However, the Eagles ’ offense hasn’t been able to get into any kind of rhythm so the strategy is actually hurting them.

ARLINGTON, Texas – The Eagles' problems were laid bare, again, for everyone to see.

A defense that can't stop anyone, an offense that can't get out of its way. All of that added up to another embarrassing defeat as the Eagles fell 37-10 to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.

So much for that first-place showdown in the NFC East.

The Dallas Cowboys ' defense has been surprisingly vulnerable and was just shredded by the Jets' Sam Darnold in his return from mono. On the downside for the ’dog, the injury report for the Eagles is a mess, with wideout DeSean Jackson and offensive tackle Jason Peters among five key players

The Eagles (3-4) never had a chance after two turnovers put them in a 14-0 hole in the first six minutes of the game. It only got worse from there.

Carson Wentz lost two fumbles inside the Eagles' 20 yard line. The defense couldn't stop quarterback Dak Prescott, running back Ezekiel Elliott or wide receiver Amari Cooper.

Elliott had 111 yards rushing and Cooper had 106 yards receiving while Prescott threw for 239 yards.

The Eagles had no answers. They tried running the ball behind Jordan Howard, which proved effective as Howard had 50 yards on 11 carries.

But it hardly mattered as the Eagles fell behind by 27-7 at halftime and had to throw. Wentz completed 16 of 26 passes for 191 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He had little help, and certainly didn't do much to help himself, either.

The defense, meanwhile, gave up 266 yards in the half. It was the second straight week the Eagles allowed at least 24 points in the first half.

The Cowboys came into the game having lost three straight, and hadn't scored a touchdown in the first half in any of those games.

That wasn't a problem against the Eagles.

On the first series of the game, Dallas Goedert fumbled after catching Wentz's pass and the Cowboys recovered, taking over at the Eagles' 45. Tavon Austin scored from 20 yards out and Dallas had the early lead.

The Eagles fumbled the ball away again on the next possession. This time, DeMarcus Lawrence sacked Wentz, forcing a fumble that Antwaun Woods recovered at the Eagles' 14. Elliott ran the ball down to the 1, then scored on the next play.

  Doug Pederson says he never used word “guarantee” but has confidence in team Eagles coach Doug Pederson said on the radio Monday morning that the Eagles are “going down to Dallas, and our guys are gonna be ready to play, and we’re gonna win that football game, and when we do, we’re in first place in the NFC East.” Apparently, Pederson sees it as something other than a [more]Eagles coach Doug Pederson said on the radio Monday morning that the Eagles are “going down to Dallas, and our guys are gonna be ready to play, and we’re gonna win that football game, and when we do, we’re in first place in the NFC East.

Finally, the Eagles showed some life. They marched down the field, helped by two 15-yard penalties by the Cowboys before Wentz hit Goedert for a 28-yard touchdown on a beautifully thrown ball and catch.

The Eagles needed that touchdown desperately.

Turns out it hardly mattered. The Cowboys made it 21-7 on Prescott's 1-yard pass to Blake Jarwin, who was wide open because the entire Eagles' defense sold out on a fake handoff to Elliott up the middle.

Cooper got behind Rasul Douglas for a 44-yard completion down to the Eagles' 30. Elliott then carried the ball down to the 14 before Dallas settled for a field goal and a 24-7 lead at halftime.

Brett Maher's 63-yard field goal as the first half ended made it 27-7.

The Eagles couldn't get back into the game in the second half. They drove the ball down the field on their first possession of the second half, getting inside the Cowboys' 10. But the Eagles had to settle for a field goal after Lane Johnson's penalty for illegal hands to the face pushed the Eagles back to the 19.

That made it 27-10.

Field goals weren't going to make a difference as the Cowboys faced little resistance. They answered with a field goal, and later added a touchdown on Wentz's second fumble when Jason Kelce's snap hit him in the chest.

Darnold: Jets can be 'unstoppable as an offense'

  Darnold: Jets can be 'unstoppable as an offense' Sam Darnold is riding high after the New York Jets upset the Dallas Cowboys in his return from mononucleosis. With tight end Chris Herndon close to returning from a hamstring injury, the Jets' offense will soon be at full strength for the first time this season. "Right now, we're just missing Chris," Darnold told reporters, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. "Once all the guys are back together, I think we're unstoppable as an offense - or we can be."Darnold added: "It's just up to us and how we execute. It's really up to us how many points we score, I think. I think we're capable of so many points.
