MacLane: Eagles Prevail in Overtime


It's not going to take a lot to win the NFC East this year. But, now sitting at 2-6 after eight games, the Dallas Cowboys probably won't be one of the teams in contention for the division crown.

With their season already on life support, the Cowboys took on Philadelphia on Sunday Night Football. And with Dez Bryant back on the field, they had as good a chance as any to extend their playoff hopes and creep back closer to .500.

Matt Cassel kept them in the game for 60 minutes and then some. 299 yards spread around to six different receivers -- Cole Beasley accounting for nine receptions, 112 yards and two scores on 11 targets. Bryant, who caught five balls for more than 100 yards on eight targets.



But in one of his better games of the year, Sam Bradford played well enough to withstand the Dallas air attack. Jordan Matthews caught nine passes for 133 yards and a touchdown, while DeMarco Murray racked up early 80 yards receiving in addition to his 83 rushing yards.

Three field goals in the final three minutes took the score from 24-21 in favor of the Eagles to a 27-27 tie at the end of regulation.

The Eagles took control of the ball to begin overtime, and that one possession would end up being all they needed. Covering 80 yards in just over four minutes on nine plays, Bradford's one passing touchdown came at just the right time.



The quarterback drilled Matthews over the middle, and after a streak toward the sideline, the game was over.

Sitting at 4-4, the Eagles sit firmly in second place behind the Giants for first in the East. Dallas, at 2-6, might need to take a step back and focus on 2016.

Eagles 33, Cowboys 27
