Ezekiel Elliott draws Cowboys within 20-10 as C.J. Gardner-Johnson leaves with hand injury

The Cowboys have defied the odds thus far without Dak Prescott, but Mike Florio and Chris Simms think that run comes to an end against Jalen Hurts and the white-hot Eagles.

The momentum appears to have turned . . . at least for the moment.

Eagles safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson injured his left hand while trying to rip the ball from Cowboys running back Tony Pollard with 11:20 remaining in the third quarter. He immediately indicated he was injured and appeared in a lot of pain.

K’Von Wallace replaced Gardner-Johnson, who is in the training room and questionable to return.

The Cowboys finished off the nine-play, 79-yard drive, their first possession of the second half, with a 14-yard touchdown run by Ezekiel Elliott. It’s drawn Dallas to within 20-10 after the Cowboys trailed 20-0.

The Cowboys got on the board with a Brett Maher field goal with 29 seconds left before the half. They then held the Eagles to four plays and 15 yards, resulting in a punt, to open the second half.
