Cowboys- Eagles: Miles Austin Wins Game | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings
This was a big game for both teams as a victory would mean the lead in the NFC East. While the game was close throughout the Cowboys had the answer in the end and one on a touchdown pass to Miles Austin.
Cowboys Role to First Place
Last year the Cowboys were crushed at the end of the season when they went to Philadelphia and played the Eagles. This time around Dallas won the game 20 to 16 and now have a four game winning streak.
This winning streak has been headlined by emerging No.1 receiver Austin Miles and his terrific play. Ever since his monster game against the Chiefs, Miles has been almost unstoppable as he has a touchdown in all four games.
Tonight the Eagles were close to shutting him down as they held Miles without a catch until late in the game. Miles one catch was for 49 yards and was the winning score.
Quarterback Tony Romo has been almost perfect in his past three games and is improving in his decision making with the football.
Big Bird Shot Down
The Eagles’ offense is completely reliant on the big play and tonight the Cowboys’ defense could shut it down. If this team is going to the playoffs this year they need to get their running game going to have something to fall back on.
Running back LeSean McCoy didn’t have a bad night, but he’s clearly not able to handle the rock 25 times a game. This team needs Brian Westbrook back, and he should be on the field next week or the week after.
I thought at one point, Westbrook would play this week, but he had headaches on Friday and the team wisely kept him out.
