Stream the game here

11:22 p.m.: In back-to-back weeks, the Eagles have had their second- and third-worst losses under Doug Pederson. This team is absolutely reeling right now. 

This 27-point loss is the worst for the #Eagles at the hands of the #Cowboys since a 34-0 loss in 1998, the year before Andy Reid and Doug Pederson came to town. 

Final: Cowboys 37, Eagles 10 

11:15 p.m.: I don’t know what happened here: 

11:03 p.m.: Go to sleep. You don’t want to see this anymore. 

There’s 9:33 left: Cowboys 37, Eagles 10 

10:45 p.m.: Cowboys just kicked a field goal. 

We still have over 12 minutes to play in Arlington, but this this is wayyyyyy over. 

Cowboys 30, Eagles 10

10:39 p.m.: We are through three quarters and this one is over already. 

The Eagles have been outgained 326-176. 

After 3: Cowboys 27, Eagles 10 

9:55 p.m.: Brett Maher just hit a 63-yard field goal against the Eagles to end the first half. It’s the longest field goal ever against the Eagles, who let the Cowboys sneak their way down the field on a few plays to get into field goal range. 

The Eagles just played about as bad a first half of football as possible. 

They were outgained 266-95. 

The Eagles’ first offensive play was a six-yard pass to Nelson Agholor. That was the only catch for an Eagles receiver in the first half. And Zach Ertz wasn’t even targeted. 

At half: Cowboys 27, Eagles 7

9:43 p.m.: The Eagles’ defense had the Cowboys in a 3rd-and-9 from their own 21-yard line, but Malcolm Jenkins was called for hands to the face. On the next play, Dak Prescott hit Amari Cooper for a 44-yard pass. At least the Eagles held them to a field goal. 

There’s 1:31 left in the first half: Cowboys 24, Eagles 7

9:20 p.m.: After Doug Pederson went conservative on 3rd-and-4, the Cowboys got the ball back and just went on a 71-yard scoring drive. The big play of the drive came on a 4th-and-1 on a pass from Dak Prescott to Ezekiel Elliott. 

Still 6:40 left in the half: Cowboys 21, Eagles 7

9:03 p.m.: Derek Barnett got his third sack of the season and then Josh Sweat followed it up with great pressure on third down. That’s a good sign as we wrap up the first quarter. 

Big stop for the Eagles’ defense. 

8:50 p.m.: The Cowboys seemed determined to make this a close game and they certainly helped the Eagles on that touchdown drive with two personal fouls. But the touchdown was a beautiful pass from Carson Wentz to Dallas Goedert for a 28-yard touchdown. The Eagles went 87 yards on that touchdown. 

With 4:38 left in the first: Cowboys 14, Eagles 7 

8:37 p.m.: An absolutely awful start in Dallas. After Carson Wentz got strip-sacked by DeMarcus Lawrence inside their own 20. Then Zeke Elliott ran over Malcolm Jenkins for 13 yards. And then punched in a touchdown from 1 yard out. 

It’s hard to imagine a worse start. This is ugly. 

Still 8:56 left in the first: Cowboys 14, Eagles 0 

8:31 p.m.: Well … that wasn’t a good start. After the Eagles gave the Cowboys the ball in their own territory, a 20 yard pitch from Tavon Austin got a 20-yard TD run. He faked Orlando Scandrick out of his cleats. 

Not a great start. 

Still 10:08 left in the first: Cowboys 7, Eagles 0 

8:27 p.m.: The Eagles got one first down on their opening drive, then Dallas Goedert fumbled the ball away to give the Cowboys great field position. Mistakes are killing this team. 

8:22 p.m.: The Eagles won the toss and … elected to receive. It’s just the second time in 33 times they’ve taken the ball under Doug Pederson after winning the toss. 

They want to start fast. Let’s see if they do. 

7:49 p.m.: We are getting closer to kickoff here in Arlington. Here are a few scenes from warmups: 

6:36 p.m.: A few scenes from early workouts. We’re under two hours before game time! 

4:51 p.m.: I have arrived to AT&T Stadium for tonight’s game. This stadium isn’t my favorite but if you haven’t been, it’s worth a trip. It’s quite the spectacle. 

11:22 a.m.: The Eagles-Cowboys rivalry is still very real. I’m not sure if these two teams really don’t like each other or they just play into what they know is supposed to be a rivalry. And I really don’t care. Because it’s still good. 

This year, we had Doug Pederson saying the Eagles were going to win and then DeMarcus Lawrence saying the head coach should shut is ass up and then Lane Johnson posted to social media about the comments from Lawrence. It’s a lot of fun. 

Earlier this week, I checked in with Kamu Grugier-Hill, who last year said the Cowboys were chokers to see if he had any declarations this time around. 

“No,” he said, while laughing. “Not this … nope. You ain’t gonna get me.”

But Grugier-Hill clearly doesn’t like Dallas. He gets it. 

“I love playing Dallas,” he said. “This is my favorite game, obviously, besides if we go back to the Super Bowl. There’s something about this game that gets the best out of us. It’s a rivalry game, everyone knows what’s going on, everyone knows the deal. It’s a kill or be killed mentality. It’s fun. It’s real fun.”

Earlier this week, Carson Wentz was asked for his favorite Eagles-Cowboys memory. Wentz is 2-3 against Dallas. 

“I don’t really have one quite yet,” Wentz said. “Let’s hope it’s this weekend. How about that?”

10:44 a.m.: Good morning, everyone! 

I had some great BBQ last night and slept in a little late. Still … there’s too much time before Sunday Night Football. So go to your pumpkin patches, finish your errands and then get ready for the highlight of your weekend. I’ll be getting to AT&T Stadium later, but for now, catch up on some of the key matchups in this game.

Good injury news! Eagles to get Kamu Grugier-Hill back

Good injury news! Eagles to get Kamu Grugier-Hill back

Eagles linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill has been cleared through concussion protocol and is expected to return to practice on Thursday and will be able to play against the Redskins Sunday.

The circumstances around Grugier-Hill’s injury are a little mysterious, since he played the entire Dolphins game and didn’t appear on the Eagles’ injury report Thursday, four days after the game.

The Eagles didn’t practice Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday after the Dolphins game because they had a long week leading up to the Monday Night Football game against the Giants this past Monday.

Grugier-Hill missed the Giants game, the fourth game he’s missed this year. He missed the first three games of the season with a knee injury that he suffered the first week of training camp. Thursday’s practice will be the Eagles’ first since the Giants game.

Head coach Doug Pederson said Grugier-Hill first reported concussion symptoms last Thursday morning when he reported to the Nova-Care Complex.

Grugier-Hill has averaged 33 snaps per game in the nine games he’s played, third-most among Eagles linebackers, behind Nigel Bradham (60) and Zach Brown (46), who’s no longer with the team.

The Eagles were required to issue an injury report on Wednesday even though they didn’t practice because of the Monday night game.

That report lists players’ status as projections based on whether they would have participated if the Eagles did have a practice Wednesday.

According to that report, Nelson Agholor (knee), Derek Barnett (ankle) and Lane Johnson (ankle) would have missed practice.

Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is also listed on the injury report as “did not practice” since he is technically still on the 53-man roster, although his season is over and he’s expected to be placed on Injured Reserve later this week.

Agholor said on Wednesday that his knee injury has been an issue much longer than he had let on.

The Eagles also listed Jalen Mills (elbow) and Jordan Howard as limited, which means they would have participated in parts of practice if there were one.

Howard has missed four games but has been listed as limited throughout his shoulder injury since he’s cleared for non-contact drills but not contact.

Doug Pederson highlights 6 young players in postgame speech

Doug Pederson highlights 6 young players in postgame speech

The Eagles snapped their three-game losing streak on Monday night with a gutty 23-17 overtime win over the Giants. 

They were down 14 nothing and lost a few key players during the game, which was a big part of Doug Pederson’s postgame message. 

“I’ve been around a long time in this league as a player and a coach and I can’t tell you that I’ve seen a team hang together like we did all night long,” Pederson said in the video above. “The way you guys battled. Offensively through adversity. We lost a couple more guys tonight. Through adversity, you hang tough. Our young guys stepped up!”

Then Pederson mentioned six younger Eagles by name. Here they are in the order he said them:  

Greg Ward: A practice squad call-up earlier in the year, Ward caught four passes for 34 yards. 

J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: The second-round pick caught two passes for 29 yards, including what might have been the best catch of the season. 

Josh Perkins: Playing tight end and receiver, lining up all over the field, Perkins caught five passes for 37 yards. 

Boston Scott: The 5-6 running back had 128 yards from scrimmage and was the star of the night. 

Sidney Jones: He played just one snap but he made it count on a crucial third-down PBU. 

Halapoulivaati Vaitai: After Lane Johnson went down, Big V stepped in at right tackle.
