Eagles take commanding lead in NFC East.
The Philadelphia Eagles steamrolled the division rival Dallas Cowboys last night, improving to an NFL-best 9-1 and taking a commanding lead in the NFC East. The Eagles' 37-9 victory puts them four games ahead of the 5-5 Cowboys in the NFC East with just six games to play. The dominant performance is also the worst loss the Cowboys have suffered at AT&T Stadium since it opened eight years ago.
The Cowboys entered halftime with a 9-7 lead but were embarrassed in the second half as Philly outscored Dak Prescott and co. 30-0, en route to their eighth straight win.
Prescott threw a career-high three interceptions and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. Dallas has now lost two consecutive games since Ezekiel Elliott began serving his six-game suspension.
On the flip side, Eagles QB Carson Wentz threw for two touchdowns and no interceptions, which puts his season total at 25 TDs to just five picks. The Eagles' running back committee also combined for 215 yards on the ground, led by Jay Ajayi who had 91 yards on seven carries including a 71 yard scamper in the second half.
Eagles kicker Jake Elliott suffered a head injury in the second quarter which forced the team to go for it on fourth downs and attempt 2-point conversions after every touchdown. Philly will look to keep rolling, with or without field goal attempts, in Week 12 as they host the 3-7 Chicago Bears.
The Cowboys will be in action on Thanksgiving, as is tradition, when they take on the Los Angeles Chargers in Dallas this Thursday at 4:25pm ET.

Just to be clear, with Sean Lee, Tyron Smith and Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys would've beaten the Eagles convincingly tonight.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) November 20, 2017
