Cowboys prevent Eagles from clinching NFC first berth

ARLINGTON, Texas ( Associated Press) – Dak Prescott was on the podium after helping Dallas rally to defeat the Eagles. He immediately addressed the number one reason the Cowboys needed to react in the game.

Even before a reporter could ask a question, the star quarterback said, “Let’s start with the interception.”

Prescott threw for 347 yards and three scores after Josh Sweat made that interception and a run to the end zone. Brett Maher scored on Saturday as the Cowboys beat Philadelphia 40-34.

Gardner Minshew completed two touchdown passes and scored a touchdown, replacing the injured Jalen Hurts. However, a second down that was stopped by the Cowboys set the table for Maher’s field goal that put the final numbers on the scoreboard.

Four days after speaking at the funeral of his college coach Mike Leach, Minshew pulled Philadelphia to within 19 yards of what would be the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds.

However, his desperate drive into promised territory on fourth and 10 didn’t even come close to a receiver.

The NFL-leading Eagles (13-2) committed two turnovers in the final five minutes with a chance to clinch the NFC’s top seed. It was a duel between two Eastern Division teams that have qualified for the playoffs.

Minshu said, ‘We missed an opportunity. “You can’t turn the ball four times. We stress all the time that we shouldn’t give the ball away. Not doing that is what makes us successful.

Last season, former champions Dallas survived their few chances to defend the title.

Another win for Philadelphia or a loss for Dallas (11–4) in the last two games would secure home-field advantage for the Eagles during the NL playoffs.
