The Eagles beat the Cowboys in overtime


In a sweat drenching, nail-biter of a contest,  Matt Cassel played an extraordinary game. But it would not prove to be enough to defeat the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Despite Matt Cassel’s career night, DeMarco Murray, Sam Bradford and the Eagles offense had the last word over the Cowboys in a wild NFC East overtime showdown, 33-27. On the Eagles’ game-winning drive in overtime, coach Chip Kelly trusted both of his backs with meaningful carries. Murray took the Eagles into Cowboys territory and Mathews then converted a crucial fourth-and-1 before Sam Bradford connected with Jordan Matthews for the game-winning score on the ensuing play.” – reported by Jeremy Bergman
