PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Eagles faced a disheartening 33-13 defeat against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium, marking their second successive substantial setback as they approach the final phase of the regular season.

The Eagles and Cowboys are currently deadlocked at the summit of the NFC East, both boasting a 10-3 record.

In keeping with a recurring theme this season, the Eagles had a lackluster start on offense, mustering a mere six points in the initial half through Jake Elliott’s two field goals.

Offensively, the Eagles fell short of scoring a touchdown during the game. Their solitary touchdown came after Fletcher Cox strip-sacked Dak Prescott, and rookie defensive tackle Jalen Carter secured the ball for a score.

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles’ offensive unit encountered difficulties, with three pivotal fumbles. The initial mishap unfolded on the team’s opening drive after the Cowboys established a 7-0 lead. A.J. Brown fumbled in the third quarter on the team’s first drive, and the ultimate fumble occurred in the fourth quarter when DeVonta Smith lost possession following a substantial catch.

Hurts completed 18 of 27 passes for 197 yards but also incurred a fumble. Conversely, Dak Prescott delivered an exceptional performance, throwing two touchdowns for 271 yards.

The Eagles will strive to rebound in the upcoming week, facing the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football.
