The Cowboys decided to start coming back sooner than normal. Of course the Eagles had plenty to do with that.

DeMarco Murray’s 1-yard touchdown made it 14-10 just before halftime, after the Eagles defense continued to forget to cover people running across the middle of the field.

Of course, the Cowboys then allowed a quick field goal to go down 17-10 at halftime, showing the kind of defensive resilience that has them 5-6.

Eagles running back Bryce Brown has scored both Eagles touchdowns, his second straight game with a pair. He has 14 carries for 107 yards at halftime.

When the Eagles were up 14-3, it represented their largest lead of the season, which says more about their 3-8 season than tonight.

Then again, the deficit is the norm for the Cowboys, who have been outscored 151-83 in first half this year, 98-40 at home.
