The Philadelphia Eagles re-established themselves as legitimate Super Bowl contenders with a 33-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving.
The Philadelphia Eagles made a Thanksgiving meal out of the Dallas Cowboys with a 33-10 victory to improve their record to 9-3 and take sole possession of first place in the NFC East.
They held the lead the entire game, and quarterback Mark Sanchez put on a fantastic performance that was free of turnovers. Sanchez completed 20-of-29 of his passes with a touchdown pass, and he added a rushing touchdown.
Running back LeSean McCoy continued to look like an elite running back again as he rushed for 159 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin caught eight passes for 108 yards.
The Eagles were also able to generate a consistent pass rush against a dominant Cowboys offensive line as Romo was sacked four times.
For the Cowboys, quarterback Tony Romo had one of his worst games of the season as he was held to 199 yards with two interceptions.
Running back DeMarco Murray also had a performance below his standards as he rushed for only 73 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.
Committing three turnovers ultimately killed momentum for the Cowboys, and their record fell to 8-4 with the loss.
