Thanksgiving NFL Quick Shots Recap: McCoy Helps Eagles Run Past Cowboys, 33-10


ARLINGTON –In a renewal of a bitter NFC East rivalry, running back LeSean McCoy rushed for over 100 yards for the fourth time this season as the (9-3) Philadelphia Eagles dominated the (8-4) Dallas Cowboys, 33-10.

GOOD —  The forementioned McCoy rushed for 159 yards on 25 carries and one touchdown. In his second game under center, Mark Sanchez completed 20-of-29 passes from 217 yards and one touchdown and wideout Jeremy Maclin caught eight passes for 108 yards.

BAD —  The once high-powered and balanced Cowboys offense was kept mostly in check as running back DeMarco Murray finished below 100 yards for just the second time this year in finishing with 73 yards on 20 carries. The other time Murray was held to under 100 yards was in a 28-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals where he rushed for 79 yards on 19 carries.

UGLY – After jumping out to an early 14-0 lead, the Eagles failed covert in the red zone on three occasions to increase their lead. The Cowboys defense would hold forcing Philadelphia to settle for three field goals and a 23-7 lead at halftime instead.  Not one of his best games, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, threw two interceptions, sacked four times and finished with a QB rating of 53.7—his lowest of the season. For the game, Romo finished 18-of-29 for 199 yards.

In addition to Romo’s two picks, Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley lost a fumble, giving Dallas a total of three turnovers for the game.
