Dallas Cowboys: 5 Things to build on from crucial win vs. Eagles

Brett Maher made National Football League history on Sunday night when he made a 63-yard field goal at the end of the first half of the Dallas Cowboys' win over the Philadelphia Eagles. As the week progressed, however, things began to look up and they'd end up having five starters return to the field and aid in the 37-10 evisceration of the Eagles.

Elliott, who contributed 147 scrimmage yards and a touchdown during Dallas' dismantling of the Eagles, echoed the sentiments of teammate DeMarcus Lawrence, who had his own choice words for Pederson ahead of the game. Today, FS1's Colin Cowherd ripped the Eagles to shreds and gave them a double dose of reality as they enter Week 8 with a record of 3-4. They then beat them a few weeks later by a score of 29-23 as they locked up the NFC East.

All of a sudden, the Eagles quickly went from a team on the rise in the NFC to a team that clearly has numerous areas in need of improvement that were exposed when facing the Cowboys during Week 7.

The pullout largely abandons America's Kurdish allies who have fought IS alongside US troops for several years. President Donald Trump announced he was withdrawing the bulk of U.S. troops from northeastern Syria.

Dallas started out with a 14-0 lead thanks to two turnovers forced by the defense. As of right now, their only path to the playoffs is by winning their division, which means they'll have to regroup and string together some wins before the end of the season.

Now at 4-3, they head into their bye week needing to build on the success they had in this one.
