A reflection of last season, the Eagles split games with the Dallas Cowboys here in the 2015 season. The Cowboys beat the Eagles in Philly during week two. Now with the Eagles week 9 game in the books, the Birds took the victory in overtime on the road in Dallas, 33-27.
Sam Bradford continues to improve week after week and step-by-step. He ended this week’s game with a passer rating of 103.4. Meanwhile, the running attack put up 172 yards on the ground. We also, and finally, saw WR Jordan Matthews take a huge step forward catching nine balls for 133 and the game winning touchdown.
The defense had its ups and downs. While very unfortunate this team will continue on this season without LB Jordan Hicks (pectoral tear), the defense continues to be rated first in the NFL in defensive turnovers.
We give our takeaways and analysis after this game that now has the Eagles sitting at 4-4, 2nd in the NFC East.
