Cowboys- Eagles: Felix Jones Stomps Eagles Down | NFL Playoff Fantasy Football
The Eagles came to Dallas for the second week in a row and stunk up the joint. Felix Jones and the Cowboys’ defense made quick work of this team from the second quarter on as the Cowboys rolled their way to a 34 to 13 victory. Is Felix Jones the Cowboys Future Starting Tail Back? For the second week in a row running back Felix Jones had a great game against the Eagles. This week Jones produced 16 carries for 148 yards and a touchdown. Jones also had a reception for 30 yards as well. No doubt this was a dominant performance for Jones as put the game away in the second half with a 73-yard touchdown run. In the future, it will be interesting to see how the Cowboys use Jones and Marion Barber. Barber failed to run the football after the first quarter as he produced only three carries for four yards rushing in the game. If Jones continues to out play Barber in the playoffs than Barber will see his fantasy football value drop even harder than it was already slated to do. Look for Jones to be the starting tailback on this team in 2010 if he continues this strong play and stays healthy.
Cowboys Defense Strong Again For the fourth week in a row the Cowboys’ defense has played championship football. If it weren’t for a fluke touchdown pass by Michael Vick to Jeremy Maclin, the Eagles would have only scored seven points in this game.
For most of the first half, the Cowboys’ defense held Donovan McNabb to only five yards passing.
If this defense continues this dominant play next week, in Minnesota, then expect the Cowboys to play in the NFC Championship game and maybe the Super Bowl.
This team is peaking at the right time and playing like they want to win it all.
Eagles Fall Again
This was another pathetic performance for the Eagles as they just can’t matchup with the Cowboys’ team. If the Eagles want to go farther in the playoffs next year they need to improve on their ability to run the football.
Expect other teams to follow what the Cowboys have done to the Eagles in defense scheme next year. If you take away the big play from this offense, they are a shell of themselves.
