In a game that set football back dog years with its sloppiness and lack of offensive flow, the Cowboys were a little less ugly than the woeful Philadelphia Eagles, but in the long run may have paid a much bigger price. “But it’s going to take a little bit of time”. It’s a broken bone. I’m proud we got this win.
The first head-to-head meeting between DeMarco Murray and the Dallas Cowboys has come and gone.
Last Sunday, when the situation called for him, he was able to deliver successfully all his seven passes for 73 yards and a touchdown that made the Cowboys triumphed that night. But despite being down two key players, the longtime rivals managed to pull out a victory over the home team.
In 2010, Romo suffered the same injury when he was driven into the turf by Giants linebacker Michael Boley in Week 7. Kelly said he won’t have an update until Monday….
The Eagles finished with 7 yards rushing, and were outgained, 347-to-226. Sources tell me that despite rumors of the surgery altering the team’s timetable, Dallas continues to believe the All-Pro receiver can return in less than eight weeks. “Physically, he has such focus and he understands his body”.
Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford came out of the game uninjured but his day was so bad he’s got to be looking over his shoulder all week with Mark Sanchez there right behind him.
Bradford is 0-2 as a starter with his new team, with twice as many interceptions (4) as touchdowns (2) and a passer rating under 75, the unofficial Mendoza Line for quarterbacks.
“Every opportunity that I get, when a ball is thrown at me, I feel like it’s my job to catch it”, Jones said on Sunday. “It’s going to be a challenge”.
Quarterback Sam Bradford – 23 of 37 for 224 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions and a TEAM-LEADING 9 yards rushing. “Nothing”, said Steve Mosser of Reading, Pa. To make matters worse, the Eagles offense was sloppy. “All I’m anxious about is winning”, Murray said. “We had three penalties against New York last week and then 18 this week, and that’s hard to fathom”.
He wasn’t kidding about that, or when he said, “nothing worked [Sunday]”.
Romo went down during the third quarter of their 20-10 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Romo joined Dez Bryant on the injured list by breaking his collarbone against Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles trailed 13-3 when Malcolm Jenkins picked up Gavin Escobar’s fumble and returned it to the Cowboys’ 30.
Unfortunately, the Eagles gave it right back to the Cowboys when center Jason Kelce snapped the football before Bradford was ready. They passed on the two downs rather than run it. On second and goal, from the three, Bradford was intercepted in the end zone by Dallas linebacker Sean Lee.
There really isn’t much more you could ask from for a unit missing it’s best cornerback for the year, it’s stud rookie pass-rusher for a while and it’s stud free agent pass-rusher for another couple of games, but the Cowboys thoroughly dominated the Chip Kelly show in Philly.
The Cowboys led 6-0 at halftime as both teams struggled offensively.
